Subject: A question for legal eagles

Message:
 

 
I have a question relating to law suits. I have wondered about how this works for a while now, as it seems to have an important influence on the outcome: Who decides in which juristiction a legal will take place? If I am in the UK and a company in the US wishes to launch a legal challenge against me, will it be in the UK or US courts? Is it up to me, or them? Do I get to choose UK? Or can they insist on US? And if so, does this mean I have to piss about trying to find a lawyer I've never heard of in a far away land?
