Either party may terminate these Terms and Customer’s access to the Services for any reason or for no reason by giving the other party at least 15 days’ advance written notice of the termination of these Terms or such term as otherwise agreed-upon between Customer (or on Customer’s behalf) and Tradeweb in any Other Agreement. Tradeweb may terminate these Terms and Customer’s access to the Services immediately on Customer’s breach of these Terms, Customer’s breach of its agreement with one or more of its Brokers, or if any such Broker requests Tradeweb terminate the Terms.

d. Severability and Interpretation. If a governmental authority of competent jurisdiction holds any provision of these Terms to be unenforceable, then that provision is to be construed either by modifying it to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable (if permitted by law) or disregarding it (if not). If an unenforceable provision is modified or disregarded in accordance with this section, all other provisions of these Terms are to remain in effect as written, except that the entirety of these Terms will be unenforceable if modifying or disregarding the unenforceable provision affects the economic and legal substance of the transactions contemplated by these Terms in a manner materially adverse to either party.

e. Governing Law. These Terms, and any dispute, claim, or controversy between the parties arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Services, whether in contract, tort or otherwise, and the parties’ rights, remedies and obligations under these Terms, are to be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of New York without giving effect to its conflicts of law rules to the extent those rules would require applying another jurisdiction’s laws. The parties may commence an action, suit, or proceeding arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Services only in, and hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of, the federal and state courts located in the County of New York within the State of New York. In any litigation, arbitration or other proceeding by which Tradeweb either seeks to enforce its rights under these Terms (whether in contract and/or tort), or seeks a declaration of any rights or obligations under these Terms, Customer shall reimburse Tradeweb for Tradeweb’s reasonable attorneys’ fees and other expenses incurred in connection therewith, but only if Tradeweb is the prevailing party in such a proceeding.
