Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I will help you with your question.
You have two types of clause in these contracts - one says which law and applied, and the other says which courts of which country apply.
So, you might see something saying English Law applied and this is subject to the jurisdiction of the English Courts.
Or you might see something like English law applied and subject to the jurisdiction of the French Courts. (unlikely, though!)
So, Law and Jurisdiction are different.
Do you know whether you have a bit saying the English Courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction.
yes both contracts say subject to English law
OKay - if subject to English jurisdiction, then you would be able to challenge the right of the Scottish Courts to even hear the claim.
You're welcome - to challenge this, you need usually to do it immediately by applying to the Court. I would suggest you speak with the court tomorrow and that you ask them for the forms you need to make this application if you intend to do that.
I hope this answers your question. If you need further information, either now or later, just let me know and I'll gladly help out.
Please do remember to rate my answer as highly as you can for me. Thank you.
