qui statuera en première instance


Explanation:
Le paragraphe désigne la juridiction compétente en première instance, cela laisse ouverte la porte aux autres possibilités d'action.
Attention: Les clauses d'attribution de juridicition peuvent être délcarées non valides dans certains cas ou dans certains pays, cela n'interdit pas de les inclure, mais il faut éventuellement prévoir les discussions à venir sur ces clauses en cas de problème.
