Law/Patents - Law: Contract(s) / distributorship contract
French term or phrase: nos acceptations de règlement, n’opèrent ni novation, ni dérogation à cette convention attributive de paiement
dans une "clause attributive de competence"

Source text (don't see how the "reglement" and "paiement" fit in:

"Nos mandats ou nos [acceptations de règlement], n’opèrent ni novation, ni dérogation à cette [convention attributive de paiement] et de juridiction et ce, même en cas de pluralité de défendeurs et d’appel en garantie"

This is the translation I have:

"The fact of our operating through paid representatives can have no change or dispensation to the present clause of applicable jurisdiction, even in the event of plurality of defending parties and appeal against a warranty."

Is the source text understandable as is ? Is there a clearer way of saying this ? Does the translation match ?

Explanation:
1. Is the source text understandable as is? Yes.

2. Is there a clearer way of saying this? Yes. Here it is:

Neither our legal representation agreements, nor our acceptance of payment constitutes a renewal or waiver of this payment assignment and jurisdiction agreement, even in case of multiple defendants or a third-party complaint.

3. Does the translation match?

I changed one or two words for clarification.

Au plaisir
