Governing Law and Dispute Resolution
These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of laws principles.

The parties agree that the dispute will be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and that judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitration will be held in Oakland, California, or any other location both parties agree to in writing. The prevailing party will be entitled to costs and attorneys’ fees. Except as may be required by law or as necessary to enforce the respective award in a court of law, neither party, nor the mediator or arbitrator, may disclose the existence, content, or results of any mediation or arbitration without the prior written consent of both parties.
Modifications. Everlaw may update these Terms at any time by posting a revised version on its website.

Assignment. Neither party may assign these Terms without the written approval of the other, except that Everlaw may assign this Agreement in connection with a merger, sale of substantially all of its stock or assets, or other change in Control. Any other attempt to assign is invalid.
No Agency. The Terms do not create any agency, partnership, or joint venture between the parties.
Severability. If any provision in these Terms is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the rest of the Terms will remain in effect.
