Dispute Resolution. Unless otherwise provided for in this ESA, the dispute resolution procedures of this Article 12.2 shall be the exclusive mechanism to resolve disputes arising under this ESA. The Parties agree to use their respective best efforts to resolve any dispute(s) that may arise regarding this ESA. Any dispute that arises under or with respect to this ESA that cannot be resolved shall in the first instance be the subject of informal negotiations between the Parties involved in the dispute. The dispute shall be considered to have arisen when one Party sends the other Party(ies) involved in the dispute a written notice of dispute. The period for informal negotiations shall be fourteen (14) days from receipt of the written notice of dispute unless such time is modified by written agreement of the Parties involved in the dispute. In the event that the parties involved in the dispute cannot resolve a dispute by informal negotiations, the Parties agree to submit the dispute to mediation. Within fourteen (14) days following the expiration of the time period for informal negotiations, the Parties shall propose and agree upon a neutral and otherwise qualified mediator. In the event that the Parties fail to agree upon a mediator, the Parties shall request that the American Arbitration Association (AAA), Boston, Massachusetts, appoint a mediator and the mediation will be held in Boston, Massachusetts or other mutually agreed to venue. The period for mediation shall commence upon the appointment of the mediator and shall not exceed sixty (60) days, unless such time period is modified by written agreement of the Parties. The decision to continue mediation shall be in the sole discretion of each party involved in the dispute. The Parties will bear their own costs of the mediation. The mediator’s fees shall be shared equally by all parties involved in the dispute. In the event that the Parties cannot resolve a dispute by informal negotiations or mediation, the Parties agree to submit such dispute to arbitration and agree that the arbitration process provided for in this Article 12.2 shall be the exclusive means for resolving disputes which the Parties cannot otherwise resolve through informal negotiation or mediation as described above. Any arbitration hereunder shall be conducted under the Commercial Rules of the AAA as modified herein. Arbitration proceedings shall take place in Boston, Massachusetts, before a single arbitrator who shall be an attorney with at least 20 years of...
Dispute Resolution. In the case of a dispute as to the determination of the Exercise Price or the arithmetic calculation of the Warrant Shares, the Company shall submit the disputed determinations or arithmetic calculations via facsimile or electronic mail within two (2) Business Days of receipt of the Exercise Notice or other event giving rise to such dispute, as the case may be, to the Holder. If the Holder and the Company are unable to agree upon such determination or calculation of the Exercise Price or the Warrant Shares within three (3) Business Days of such disputed determination or arithmetic calculation being submitted to the Holder, then the Company shall, within two (2) Business Days submit via facsimile or electronic mail (a) the disputed determination of the Exercise Price to an independent, reputable investment bank selected by the Company and approved by the Holder or (b) the disputed arithmetic calculation of the Warrant Shares to the Company’s independent, outside accountant. The Company shall cause at its expense the investment bank or the accountant, as the case may be, to perform the determinations or calculations and notify the Company and the Holder of the results no later than ten (10) Business Days from the time it receives the disputed determinations or calculations. Such investment bank’s or accountant’s determination or calculation, as the case may be, shall be binding upon all parties absent demonstrable error.

The parties (a) hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submit to the jurisdiction of the state courts of Delaware and to the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the District of Delaware for the purpose of any suit, action or other proceeding arising out of or based upon this Agreement, (b) agree not to commence any suit, action or other proceeding arising out of or based upon this Agreement except in the state courts of Delaware or the United States District Court for the District of Delaware, and (c) hereby waive, and agree not to assert, by way of motion, as a defense, or otherwise, in any such suit, action or proceeding, any claim that it is not subject personally to the jurisdiction of the above-named courts, that its property is exempt or immune from attachment or execution, that the suit, action or proceeding is brought in an inconvenient forum, that the venue of the suit, action or proceeding is improper or that this Agreement or the subject matter hereof may not be enforced in or by such court.
Dispute Resolution. To ensure the timely and economical resolution of disputes that arise in connection with this Agreement, Executive and the Company agree that any and all disputes, claims, or causes of action arising from or relating to the enforcement, breach, performance or interpretation of this Agreement, Executive’s employment, or the termination of Executive’s employment, shall be resolved to the fullest extent permitted by law by final, binding and confidential arbitration, by a single arbitrator, in San Mateo County, California, conducted by Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”) under the applicable JAMS employment rules. By agreeing to this arbitration procedure, both Executive and the Company waive the right to resolve any such dispute through a trial by jury or judge or administrative proceeding. The arbitrator shall: (i) have the authority to compel adequate discovery for the resolution of the dispute and to award such relief as would otherwise be permitted by law; and (ii) issue a written arbitration decision, to include the arbitrator’s essential findings and conclusions and a statement of the award. The arbitrator shall be authorized to award any or all remedies that Executive or the Company would be entitled to seek in a court of law. The Company shall pay all JAMS’ arbitration fees in excess of the amount of court fees that would be required if the dispute were decided in a court of law. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to prevent either Executive or the Company from obtaining injunctive relief in court to prevent irreparable harm pending the conclusion of any such arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Executive and the Company each have the right to resolve any issue or dispute over intellectual property rights by Court action instead of arbitration.

The parties shall share the costs of the mediator equally. Each party shall cooperate fully and fairly with the mediator, and shall reach a mutually satisfactory compromise of the Dispute. If the Dispute is not resolved within thirty (30) days after it is referred to the mediator, it shall be resolved through final and binding arbitration, as specified in this Section 13. Binding arbitration shall be conducted by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”), sitting in Orange County, California, for resolution by a single arbitrator acceptable to both parties. If the parties fail to agree to an arbitrator within ten (10) days of a written demand for arbitration being sent by one party to the other party, then JAMS shall select the arbitrator according to the JAMS Rules for Commercial Arbitration. The arbitration shall be conducted pursuant to the California Code of Civil Procedure and the California Code of Evidence. The award of such arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties, and may be enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event of arbitration to resolve a Dispute, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its attorney’s fees and other out-of-pocket costs incurred in connection therewith from any non-prevailing party involved therein.

Dispute Resolution. The parties hereto shall initially attempt to resolve all claims, disputes or controversies arising under, out of or in connection with this Agreement by conducting good faith negotiations amongst themselves. If the parties hereto are unable to resolve the matter following good faith negotiations, the matter shall thereafter be resolved by binding arbitration and each party hereto hereby waives any right it may otherwise have to the resolution of such matter by any means other than binding arbitration pursuant to this Section 11.15. Whenever a party shall decide to institute arbitration proceedings, it shall provide written notice to that effect to the other parties hereto. The party giving such notice shall, however, refrain from instituting the arbitration proceedings for a period of sixty (60) days following such notice. During this period, the parties shall make good faith efforts to amicably resolve the claim, dispute or controversy without arbitration. Any arbitration hereunder shall be conducted in the English language under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association. Any such arbitration shall be conducted in Las Vegas, Nevada by a panel of three arbitrators: one arbitrator shall be appointed by each of Parent and Company; and the third shall be appointed by the American Arbitration Association. The panel of arbitrators shall have the authority to grant specific performance. Judgment upon the award so rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction or application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of any award and an order of enforcement, as the case may be. In no event shall a demand for arbitration be made after the date when institution of a legal or equitable proceeding based on the claim, dispute or controversy in question would be barred under this Agreement or by the applicable statute of limitations. The prevailing party in any arbitration in accordance with this Section 11.15 shall be entitled to recover from the other party, in addition to any other remedies specified in the award, all reasonable costs, attorneys’ fees and other expenses incurred by such prevailing party to arbitrate the claim, dispute or controversy.

The Company shall pay all JAMS arbitration fees in excess of the administrative fees that Employee would be required to pay if the dispute were decided in a court of law. The parties agree this arbitration agreement does not extend to claims for workers’ compensation or unemployment benefits, or any other claims, that Employee cannot, as a matter of applicable law, be required to arbitrate, nor does it preclude Employee from initiating a complaint before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or any other governmental agency, but if any such complaint is not resolved before the agency any action for money damages shall be submitted to arbitration pursuant to this paragraph. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to prevent any party from obtaining injunctive relief ...
Dispute Resolution. Any dispute, controversy or claim (each, a “Dispute”) arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or the interpretation, breach, termination, validity or invalidity thereof, shall be referred to arbitration upon the demand of either party to the dispute with notice (the “Arbitration Notice”) to the other. The Dispute shall be settled by arbitration in Hong Kong by the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (the “HKIAC”) in accordance with the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre Administered Arbitration Rules (the “HKIAC Rules”) in force at the time when the Arbitration Notice is submitted. The seat of arbitration shall be Hong Kong. There shall be three (3) arbitrators.

Such arbitrators shall be freely selected, and the parties shall not be limited in their selection to any prescribed list. The chairman of the HKIAC shall select the third arbitrator. If either party to the arbitration fails to appoint an arbitrator with the Selection Period, the relevant appointment shall be made by the chairman of the HKIAC. The arbitral proceedings shall be conducted in English. To the extent that the HKIAC Rules are in conflict with the provisions of this Section 9.13, including the provisions concerning the appointment of the arbitrators, this Section 9.13 shall prevail. Each party to the arbitration shall cooperate with each other party to the arbitration in making full disclosure of and providing complete access to all information and documents requested by such other party in connection with such arbitral proceedings, subject only to any confidentiality obligations binding on such party. The award of the arbitral tribunal shall be final and binding upon the parties thereto, and the prevailing party may apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for enforcement of such award. Any party to the Dispute shall be entitled to seek preliminary injunctive relief, if possible, from any court of competent jurisdiction pending the constitution of the arbitral tribunal. During the course of the arbitral tribunal’s adjudication of the Dispute, this Agreement shall continue to be performed except with respect to the part in dispute and under adjudication.
