Recognizing their shared interests, they shall attempt to reach a satisfactory solution. If the parties fail to resolve or settle the dispute within a period of thirty (30) days from the commencement of such consultation or negotiation, either party may provide notice to the other, and any unresolved Dispute, including questions regarding the existence, validity, or termination of the Agreement, shall be referred to and ultimately resolved through binding arbitration under the London Court of International Arbitration (“LCIA”) Rules (“Arbitration”).

You acknowledge and agree that any breach of the Agreement by you could result in irreparable harm to us.

It is not necessary to provide evidence of special damages to enforce this Agreement.

Provisions within this Agreement that are expressly stated or naturally intended to survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement for their intended purpose shall continue in effect until they are no longer necessary to fulfill that purpose.

Furthermore, this Agreement shall not be interpreted as creating any agency, partnership, trust arrangement, fiduciary relationship, or any other form of joint enterprise between you and us.
