The rights and obligations of the Company under this Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon their respective successors and assigns, and shall be enforceable by such successors and assigns.|
|13)||Severability; Survival. In the event that any provision of this Agreement is found to be void and unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such unenforceable provision shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent possible so as to be enforceable (or if not subject to modification, then eliminated herefrom) for the purpose of those procedures to the extent necessary to permit the remaining provisions to be enforced. The provisions of Sections 3 through 16 of this Agreement shall survive the termination for any reason of the Employee's relationship with the Company.|
|14)||Counterparts. This Agreement may be signed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be an original but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.|
