    Default What Does "Notwithstanding Anything to the Contrary" Mean

    I'm looking at a master policy, loaded up with obligations and agreements between seller and purchaser, and then comes the verbiage "Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement..." In English, please...what exactly does that phrase mean, as it appears to preceed a series of loopholes. I guess what I need someone to do is to rephrase "Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement..." into layman's terms. I am aware that "Notwithstanding" can mean anything from "Despite" to "Having Said That". Thanks in advance for your help.
