- Governing Law; Binding Arbitration; Waiver
In the event the Parties are unable to resolve any dispute through amicable negotiations, each party may submit such dispute to be resolved by binding arbitration pursuant to this paragraph. Such arbitration shall be conducted under the then current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) (available from the AAA at its website www.adr.org) by one neutral arbitrator mutually acceptable to both parties or appointed in accordance with such rules, and shall be conducted in New York City, New York. The arbitration shall be conducted in English. The Parties shall keep confidential: (i) any awards awarded in the arbitration; (ii) all materials used, or created for use, in the arbitration; and (iii) all other documents produced by another party in the arbitration and not otherwise in the public domain, except, with respect to each of the foregoing, to the extent that disclosure may be legally required (including to protect or pursue a legal right) or necessary to enforce or challenge an arbitration award before a court or other judicial authority. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and judgment may be entered thereon by any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in the Agreement shall prevent either party from seeking provisional measures (including equitable relief), or the enforcement of any arbitration award from any court of competent jurisdiction, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with the Agreement to arbitrate or a waiver of the right to arbitrate.
If any provision of this Agreement shall be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect.
The failure of Rowan to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. Any waiver of this Agreement by Rowan must be in writing and signed by an authorized representative of Rowan.
