sumisión a fuero
Explanation:
In Spanish contracts the counterpart of the "Consent to Jurisdiction" clause is the "Cláusula de Sumisión a Fuero" in which the parties expressly waive the venue (“fuero”) to which they might be entitled (usually) by virtue of domicile ("con renuncia expresa al fuero que por razón de domicilio les pudiera corresponder") and agree to submit any dispute arising under the contract to the courts of another jurisdiction ("sometiéndose a la jurisdicción de los Tribunales de XXX").

Your text says “(the parties) hereby irrevocably submit to the jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York.” This could be apropriately rendered as “(las partes)” se someten irevocablemente a la jurisdicción de los Tribunales del Estado de Nueva York”.
