Should we add in our consulting agreement per the client's request to have an agreement governed by the laws in their country?
We are a US based retail consulting company. We have worked with several clients around the world for the past 10 years and have not had any issues.
We have a potential new client that is very interested in working with us, however, they asked us to add a clause in the agreement stating "This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of Denmark, and the Parties further consent to jurisdiction by the courts of Denmark primarily the court at Aarhus, Denmark."
If the consulting work is being done in the US, I don't feel comfortable in adding that clause in our agreement. I would love to hear the group's thoughts. There has to be a better option for both sides. Thanks!
