English translation:place of jurisdiction
Explanation:
Lieu dont les tribunaux sont compétents pour régler des procédures engagées. Dans leurs contrats et sur leurs formules, les banques indiquent toujours comme for leur lieu de domicile.
Mot latin désignant un tribunal et plus particulièrement sa compétence. C'est ainsi qu'en droit international privé les règles de procédure applicables sont celles du « for ».

- Centre international du droit des affaires : Lexique pratique commercial, Paris, Regif, 1973.

Thanks. The subtlety of the response made of lot of sense given the varied and multiple usage (the 2 suggestions subsequently made by others were over-specific and didn't work in context). Salut! Paul

court, tribunal


Explanation:
With all due respect to the first answer, as I understand it "for" refers to the court or the tribunal itself rather than to its jurisdiction or place thereof, which is more a question of scope of authority ; in either terms of matters of law which is has the authority to rule upon, or in terms of country, domicile.

One of the examples provided by EuroDicAutom gave : "for compétent", ie tribunal having jurisdiction. A subtle difference, but then I can claim no particular experience of Swiss law.
