C) Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Oregon, without regard to Oregon’s conflict-of-laws principles. The parties agree that any claim asserted in any legal proceeding by one party against the other shall be commenced and maintained exclusively in the state or federal court located in Multnomah County, Oregon.

Any preprinted terms on any purchase order you may submit are expressly rejected by Law Lab and shall be given no force or effect.
F) Severability. Any term or provision of this Agreement deemed invalid or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall not render invalid or unenforceable the remaining terms and provisions of this Agreement or otherwise affect the validity or enforceability of any term or provision of this Agreement.
G) Injunctive Relief. You agree that it would be difficult to measure damages to Law Lab in the event of any breach by you of this Agreement and that monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy for any such breach. Accordingly, you agree that in the event of your or your Authorized Users’ actual or threatened breach of this Agreement, Law Lab shall be entitled, in addition to all other remedies it may have at law or in equity, to an injunction or other appropriate orders to restrain any such breach or any attempted breach without showing or proving any actual damage sustained by Law Lab. The amount of the bond, if any, to be posted by Law Lab in seeking such injunction shall be not more than $2,500, but this provision shall not limit or be evidence of the amount of damages to Law Lab. Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed as precluding or limiting any other remedies available to Law Lab at law or in equity for any breach or threatened or attempted breach of this Agreement, including the recovery of damages.
H) Attorney Fees. If any action is brought by a party to this Agreement to enforce or interpret its terms or provisions, the prevailing party shall be entitled to reasonable attorney fees and costs incurred in connection with such action, prior to, at trial, and on any appeal.
