Forum-selection clauses are found in virtually every contract these days, yet very few attorneys put much thought into how they should be drafted. Most of us simply cut and paste the clause from another contract form and assume it will do the job. While that strategy may have worked in the past, a case currently pending before the U.S. Supreme Court may change the way all lawyers draft and litigate forum-selection clauses in the future.
