This letter agreement shall be construed in accordance with, and this letter agreement and all matters arising out of or relating in any way whatsoever (whether in contract, tort or otherwise) to this letter agreement shall be governed by, the Law of the State of Delaware, without regard to any conflicts of laws or choice of laws rules that may require application of another state’s laws.
