    Default Contract Clause Restricting Choice of Venue for Litigation

    My question involves business law in the state of: Hawaii

    I am trying to draft a simple release form and am having trouble finding the proper verbiage to require any litigation against myself or my company to be held in the state where our business resides. Mostly I have been looking over similar releases and piecing ours together from these forms. I have a fairly decent understanding of many legal terms and words, but there is a single line which I am not quite sure of its meaning. It states,
    "I agree that this release is irrevocable, worldwide and perpetual, and will be governed by the laws of..."
    In other forms, it would have the county, state or even country. I had previously left it as "laws of the United States of America" but if I were to change it to my state and county, would that line actually achieve what I'm looking for? If not, could someone help me with getting something short and to the point for this? Thanks!

    That clause language doesn't relate to the location of litigation - it relates to choice of law. Read this.
