Why does governing law matter? Isn't it all in the contract, anyway?

Updated: Mar 30, 2022

A Governing law clause within the context of a contract will be used to stipulate which country’s law will apply if contractual disputes arise.

This clause will be crucial in the event of a contractual dispute as this will save parties both time and money due to the fact that parties will not have to dispute over which laws and jurisdiction applies.

A holistic understanding of governing law clauses will help you negotiate for the best law and jurisdiction for your contractual position.
