Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Be aware this means that the laws of China apply to the agreement. This could cause issues in the future if any dispute occurs, any disputes will be dealt with under Xhiese
Yes I understand that. The question is whether I should be concerned about it? (In particular in regard to an NDA where I am not expecting any issues.)
Not having seen the document or knowing a great deal more about the arrangements in this situation it is difficult to say.
The immediate concern should be if there are issues then Chinese law will apply. This will leave you either having to bring an action or defend one in a foreign jurisdiction. The clauses may look standard and reasonable but do you know whether the clauses are compatible with Chinese law. Secondly, the document and its provisions may be contrary to Chinese law rendering it void and unenforceable.
For comfort you would need to take advice on the NDA from a Chinese or dual qualified lawyer.
