The Agreement will be governed by and interpreted pursuant to the laws of the state in which Hotel is located, excluding any laws regarding the choice or conflict of laws.
The parties will use their commercially reasonable efforts to informally and timely resolve any dispute concerning any matter related to this Agreement by presenting the dispute to senior representatives of Hotel and Group for their discussion and possible resolution in the order set forth herein; provided, however, that a dispute relating to patents, trademarks, trade dress, copyrights, trade secrets, and/or infringement of intellectual property rights shall not be subject to this provision. All negotiations pursuant to this section are confidential and shall be treated as compromise and settlement negotiations for purposes of applicable rules of evidence. If within a period of thirty (30) calendar days after submission of a disputed matter in accordance with this clause, the respective senior representatives are unable to agree upon a resolution of such dispute, then the dispute will be resolved by binding arbitration using one arbitrator before JAMS or the American Arbitration Association in the state and city in which the Hotel is located, or the closest available location. The parties further agree that in any arbitration proceeding, they may conduct reasonable discovery pursuant to the arbitration rules, and any arbitration award will be enforceable in State or Federal court.
The parties agree that the prevailing party in any arbitration or court proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement will be entitled to recover an award of its reasonable attorney's fees and expert witness fees, costs and pre and post judgment interest at the highest available legal rate. The parties further agree that if Hotel must retain counsel or initiate arbitration or legal action to collect of any monies owed to Hotel by Group under this Agreement, whether or not an arbitration or court action is filed, Hotel will be entitled to recover its reasonable attorney’s fees incurred in such efforts to collect.
