Have you been asked to sign a contract with provisions you don’t understand? Beware before you sign, the law in Florida when it comes to contracts is that if you signed it, you are presumed to have read it and understood it.
Two contractual provisions that often get misconstrued as being the same thing are Choice of Law and Venue provisions. A choice of law provision dictates what jurisdiction’s laws will be used no matter where the case is physically litigated. The venue provision, on the other hand, is the provison that dictates where the lawsuit will be handled. Be aware, when dealing with out of area parties, that their contracts will often contain choice of law clauses for other States and venue provisions for jurisdictions very far from you. This could make it extremely difficult and or expensive to litigate if you find yourself in a dispute.
