CHOICE OF LAW AND JURISDICTION
This Agreement shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois, U.S.A. without regard to its conflict of laws principles. You agree that any suit or action between the parties arising from or related to this Agreement, which is not resolved pursuant to the below arbitration requirements, shall exclusively be resolved in a state court located in the State of Illinois, U.S.A. sitting in the County of Cook, or, if the subject matter jurisdictional requirements can be satisfied, in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, and you irrevocably consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of such state and federal courts for any such suit or action. You waive any right that you may have to object to the personal jurisdiction or venue of such state and federal courts.
You acknowledge that any breach or threatened breach of this Agreement by you will result in irreparable harm for which damages would not be an adequate remedy, and, therefore, in addition to its rights and remedies otherwise available at law, Sagent will be entitled to seek immediate equitable relief, including injunctive relief, as appropriate. Sagent will be entitled to the relief described in this paragraph without the requirement of posting a bond. If Sagent seeks any equitable remedies, it will not be precluded or prevented from seeking remedies at law, nor will it be deemed to have made an election of remedies.
You agree that Sagent may elect to resolve all disputes, controversies, or claims arising under, out of, or relating to this Agreement in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section. If any dispute cannot be resolved through negotiations between the parties within five days of notice from one party to the other of the dispute, Sagent may elect to finally settle such dispute through binding arbitration under the arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) then in effect (the “Rules”). Sagent may commence the arbitration by delivering a request for arbitration as specified in the Rules. The arbitration will be conducted before a sole neutral arbitrator selected by agreement of the parties. If the parties cannot agree on the appointment of a single arbitrator within 30 days (the “Initial Period”) after the request for arbitration, a neutral arbitrator will be selected as provided in the Rules. The arbitration will be conducted exclusively in the English language at a site specified by Sagent in the County of Cook, State of Illinois, U.S.A. The award of the arbitrator will be the exclusive remedy of the parties for all claims, counterclaims, issues or accountings presented or pleaded to the arbitrator. The award of the arbitrators will require payment of the costs, fees, and expenses incurred by the prevailing party in any such arbitration by the non-prevailing party. Judgment upon the award may be entered in a state court sitting in the County of Cook, State of Illinois, U.S.A. or the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, and you irrevocably submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of any such courts in any action or proceeding brought to enforce a judgment. Any additional costs, fees, or expenses incurred in enforcing the award may be charged against the party that resists its enforcement.
In addition to any other relief, the prevailing party in any action arising out of this Agreement will be entitled to its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.
If any provision or part of this Agreement will be declared illegal, void or unenforceable, the remaining portions will continue in full force and effect to the extent permitted by law insofar as the primary purpose of this Agreement is not frustrated.
Any waiver by either party of a breach of any provision of this Agreement will not operate as or be construed to be a waiver of any other breach of such provision or of any breach of any other provision of this Agreement.
Whenever the consent or approval of Sagent is required hereunder, such consent or approval may be given or withheld by Sagent in its sole discretion.
This Agreement contains the entire understanding between the parties relating to the subject matter herein contained and supersedes all prior oral and written understandings, arrangements and agreements between the parties relating thereto.
