Severability: If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, (a) such provision shall be fully severed here from and the remainder of the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and (b) in lieu of such provision, the parties agree to add to this Agreement a valid, legal and enforceable provision as similar in terms to such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision as may be possible to give effect to the intention of the parties.
Counterparts: This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, all of which taken together shall constitute one single Agreement between the parties.
No Waiver: No delay or omission by either party hereto to exercise any right, power or remedy occurring upon any noncompliance or default by the other party with respect to any of the terms of this Agreement shall impair any such right, power or remedy or be construed to be a waiver thereof. A waiver by either of the parties hereto of any of the covenants, conditions, or agreements to be performed by the other shall not be construed to be a waiver of any succeeding breach thereof or of any covenant, condition, or agreement herein contained. Unless stated otherwise, all remedies provided for in this Agreement shall be cumulative and in addition to and not in lieu of any other remedies available to either party at law, in equity, or otherwise. No waiver of a breach on one occasion shall be deemed a waiver on another occasion.
Further Assurance: Each party shall, at the cost and expense of the other party, use all reasonable endeavours to do all such further acts and things and execute or procure the execution of all such other documents as that party may from time to time reasonably require, for the purpose of giving that party the full benefit of the assets, rights and benefits to be transferred to the other party under this Agreement.
Entire Agreement/Amendment: This Agreement and the exhibits attached hereto constitute the entire and complete agreement between the parties regarding the subject matter hereof and thereof and supersede all prior or contemporaneous agreements, understandings, negotiations, proposals and representations by the parties with respect to such subject matter. No change, modification, amendment, waiver or discharge hereof shall be valid unless it is in writing and is executed by both parties.
Section Headings/Exhibits: The section and subsection headings used herein are for reference and convenience only, and shall not enter into the interpretation hereof. The exhibits attached hereto are incorporated in full herein.
a) In the event of any dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement, which cannot be resolved to the satisfaction of both parties, each party shall nominate one representative for the purposes of resolving such dispute. The representatives shall meet and shall attempt in good faith to resolve the dispute within ten (10) business days from the date of receipt of notice from a party of the need to resolve any dispute pursuant to this Section 11.14. This procedure shall be a required prerequisite before either party may terminate this Agreement as a result of such dispute. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Section 11.14 shall not be construed to limit any other rights either party may have in equity, including, without limitation, the seeking and obtaining of a temporary restraining order.
b) Any controversy, dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, any modification or extension hereof, or any breach hereof (including the question of whether any matter can be arbitrated hereunder) and which is not capable of resolution in accordance with Section 11.14, shall be settled exclusively by arbitration in London in accordance with the Law Of England & Wales and the rules made there under (the "Act" and the “Rules”). The language of the arbitration shall be English. The parties to the arbitration shall bear equally the fees of the arbitrator and related expenses of arbitration and each party shall bear their respective attorneys' fees. Any award of the arbitration shall be final and binding on the parties and each party hereby waives to the fullest extent permitted by law any right to any form of appeal that it may otherwise have under the laws of any jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section 11 is intended to deprive either party of injunctive or other equitable relief in any court. The prevailing party may file all such awards and decisions with any court having jurisdiction over the person or property of the other party as a basis for judgment and the issuance of execution thereon.
c) Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties agree that Section 11 shall not apply to the breach of provisions pertaining to confidentiality and proprietary rights, and that either party may petition a court of law for injunctive relief and such other rights and remedies as it may have at law or equity against such breaches.
Governing Law: This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England & Wales and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
