The suspensive clause relating to conditions precedent should also provide for compliance with all guarantees, guarantees, commitments, performance of agreements and understandings within the framework of the agreement. It would be rare for a choice of law provision to be excluded from a BSV (or other cross-border agreement). The absence of a legal choice clause in a BSE would subject the parties to complex costs and rules for determining the right to be applied, including taking into account where the parties are located and where they must be fulfilled. With respect to international M&A, non-appeal, which applies to the SPA, can be a disaster in the event of a dispute, especially when the buyer is established in one jurisdiction and the seller is established in another jurisdiction, with subsidiaries and assets in several other jurisdictions. A holdback is a tool used by buyers to withhold payment of part of the purchase price until a condition after conclusion is met. A remuneration is an obligation for the buyer to pay the amount withheld (usually in trust) after compliance with the conditions and gives a guarantee on uncertain issues at the time of conclusion. Holdbacks may relate to obtaining a certain working capital threshold or in the event of a dispute at closing. For example, if the target has a large number of claims on supplies and services, this amount could be deducted from the purchase price. The withdrawal (or part thereof) would be paid until a specified future date, depending on the amount of claims actually collected after closing. Therefore, a holdback can be considered as a reduction in the purchase price if certain post-closing conditions are not met. Specific meanings should be assigned to specific words in each contract, to be precise or to change the meaning of words, as is the case in certain sectors or contexts. While some words or phrases can be defined in the main part of a contract, all words or phrases with critical or ambiguous meanings or requiring lengthy definitions or explanations should be included in the definition section. This is especially useful for recurring words, phrases, or concepts.

Any defined term must first be indicated in quotation marks, so that it is clear that it is a defined, bold term (so that it is easy to find) and that the first letter of each defined word is highlighted, so that it is clear throughout the agreement that, when the word is in such a majectural form, it is actually a defined term and less easily misinterpreted (as it does in this article). . . .
