Law/Patents / legalese
English term or phrase: inure to the benefit of
"Neither Party shall be entitled to assign the benefit of any provision of this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other Party, and all the provisions hereof shall be binding upon and **inure to the benefit of** the Parties hereto and their successors and permitted assigns."

My OED says "accustom to, esp. something unpleasant"

Can you give me an explanation of this legal formula?
thx, Csaba

I guess a better way to phrase it so it is understandable is \"result in.\" The provisions will result in a benefit to the parties as well as liabilities.
