All questions concerning the construction, validity, and interpretation of these Terms and the performance of the obligations imposed by these Terms shall be governed by the internal law, not the law of conflicts, of the State of Connecticut, United States of America. Any and all disputes arising out of or related to these Terms including, without limitation, questions concerning the construction, enforceability, validity, and interpretation of these Terms will be finally resolved by arbitration conducted in the English language in Hartford, Connecticut, United States of America, under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association. The parties shall appoint as sole arbitrator a retired judge who presided in the State of Connecticut. All decisions of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on both parties and enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction, and application may be made to any court for a judicial acceptance of the award or order of enforcement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Firm shall be entitled to seek and obtain provisional or ancillary remedies such as injunctive or equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction before, during or after the pendency of any arbitration.
