6.7 Recovery of Fees by Prevailing Party. In the event of any legal action (including arbitration) to enforce or interpret this Agreement, the non-prevailing Party shall pay the reasonable attorneys’ fees and other costs and expenses (including expert witness fees) of the prevailing Party in such amount as the may be determined. In addition, such non-prevailing Party shall pay reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred by the prevailing Party in enforcing, or on appeal from, a judgment in favor of the prevailing Party. The preceding sentence is intended by the Parties to be severable from the other provisions of this Agreement and to survive and not be merged into such judgment.
22. Attorney Fees. If either Sublandlord or Subtenant institutes any action or proceeding against the other party, or such party’s affiliates, relating to the provisions of this Sublease or any default hereunder beyond any applicable notice and cure periods, the non-prevailing party in such action or proceeding shall reimburse the prevailing party in a final, non-appealable judgment for the reasonable expenses of attorneys’ fees and all costs and disbursements incurred therein by the prevailing party, including, without limitation, any such fees, costs or disbursements incurred on any appeal from such action or proceeding. The prevailing party shall recover all such fees, costs or disbursements as costs taxable by the court in the action or proceeding itself without the necessity for a cross action by the prevailing party. In addition to the foregoing award of attorneys’ fees, costs and disbursements to the prevailing party, the prevailing party shall be entitled to its reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and disbursements in any post judgment proceedings to collect or enforce the judgment. This provision is separate and several and shall survive the expiration of the Term.
Further, courts have regularly interpreted fee-shifting provisions, similar or identical to the one contained in section 8.7 of the Subscription Agreement, under an “all or nothing approach” rather than a “claim-by-claim approach.” Dittrick v. Chalfant, CIV.A. 2156-S, 2007 WL 1378346, at *2 (Del. Ch. 2007) (quoting Comrie v. Enterasys Networks, Inc., CIV.A. 19254, 2004 WL 936505, at *2 (Del. Ch. Apr. 2004; Brandin v. Gottlieb, 2000 WL 1005954, at *28 (Del. Ch. 2000)). The all or nothing approach as opposed to a claim-by-claim approach mandates to shift the fees entirely to the prevailing party. See Vianix Del. LLC v. Nuance Commc’ns, Inc., 2010 WL 3221898, at *28 (Del. Ch. 2010) (quoting Brandin v. Gottlieb, 2000 WL 1005954, at *28 (Del. Ch. 2000). Thus, under any such fee-shifting provision, the prevailing party is entitled to recover all of its costs and fees, regardless of whether the party prevails on every claim disputed in the litigation. Brandin v. Gottlieb, 2000 WL 1005954, at *28 (Del. Ch. 2000).
11.Prevailing Party.In the event of any dispute with regard to this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to receive from the non-prevailing party and the non-prevailing party shall pay upon demand all reasonable fees and expenses of counsel for the prevailing party.
8.7Attorney’s Fees. In the event that either of the parties hereto (or any successor thereto) resorts to legal action, including arbitration, in order to enforce, defend or interpret any of the terms or the provisions of this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to an award of reasonable attorneys fees if otherwise provided by law and the arbitrator determines such an award is warranted. In addition, when attorneys fees are awarded by the arbitrator, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the non-prevailing party post-judgment attorneys’ fees incurred by the prevailing party in enforcing a judgment against the non-prevailing party. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the provisions of the preceding sentence are intended to be severable from the balance of this Agreement, shall survive any judgment rendered in connection with the aforesaid legal action, and shall not be merged into any such judgment.
10.8. Attorney's Fees to Prevailing Party. In the event of any arbitration or court action conducted hereunder, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the losing party all fees and expenses incurred by the prevailing party in connection with the arbitration or court action, including reasonable attorney's fees. In the case of arbitration, the arbitrator(s) shall determine which party is the prevailing party.

14.Venue/Process/Prevailing Party.The parties to this Agreement agree that jurisdiction and venue in any action brought pursuant to this Agreement to enforce its terms or otherwise with respect to the relationships between the parties shall properly and exclusively lie in Dallas County, Texas (or the federal court in Texas having jurisdiction therefore).Such jurisdiction and venue are intended to be exclusive of any other jurisdiction or venue.The parties agree that they will not object that any action commenced in the foregoing jurisdiction is commenced in a forum non conveniens.The parties further agree that the mailing by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, of any process required by any such court shall constitute valid and lawful service of process against them, without the necessity for service by any other means provided by statute or rule of court.If any dispute between the parties as to their respective rights and entitlements hereunder results in claims being brought, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the non-prevailing party, in addition to any other relief awarded, the costs and expenses incurred in connection with such suit, including reasonable and necessary attorneys’ fees.If there is no prevailing party, each party will pay its own attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses.

In the event that you and the Company or the Company affiliate are unable to resolve the dispute, and should either party to the dispute desire to pursue a claim against the other party, both you and the Company or the Company affiliate agree to have the dispute resolved by final and binding Arbitration held in New York County, New York. The Arbitration shall be conducted by JAMS or the American Arbitration Association and provided by an impartial third-party Arbitration provider in accordance with the employment dispute rules then in effect.

Any award of the Arbitrator(s), is final and binding, and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The prevailing party shall be entitled to reimbursement of his/its related costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, from the non-prevailing party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this letter shall prohibit either party from applying to a court of competent jurisdiction (instead of an arbitrator) for injunctive relief to enjoin an actual or threatened breach of each other’s obligations set forth in this letter.
