Law/Patents - Law: Contract(s)
German term or phrase: Vorbehalten bleiben zwingende andere Gerichtsstände
The whole paragraph is
"Für die Beurteilung von Streitigkeiten anerkennen die Parteien die ausschließliche Zuständigkeit der ordentlichen Gerichte am Sitz der Energielieferantin. Vorbehalten bleiben zwingende andere Gerichtsstände."

It is part of an estimate for a engineering project. I'm sure there must be a standard phrase for this but I can't find it.

subject to compulsory provisions regarding other jurisdictions


Explanation:
This will probably need editing; it is much stronger than Paul's version, but I do use wording based on "compulsion" or "obligatory" in this context.
