Article 1210. The choice of law by the parties to the contract.

1. The parties to the contract may, at the conclusion of the contract or subsequently, by agreement between each other, choose a law that is applicable to their rights and obligations under the contract. The law chosen by the parties applies to the emergence and termination of the right of ownership and other real rights to movable property without prejudice to the rights of third parties. 2. The agreement of the parties on the choice of the law to be applied must be directly expressed or must definitely follow from the terms of the contract or a combination of the circumstances of the case. 3. The choice by the parties of the law to be applied, made after the conclusion of the contract, has retroactive effect and is considered valid, without prejudice to the rights of third parties, from the moment of the conclusion of the contract. 4. The parties to the contract may choose the law to be applied both for the contract as a whole and for its individual parts. 5. If from the totality of the circumstances of the case that existed at the time of the choice of the law to be applied, it follows that the contract is really connected with only one country, then the parties' choice of the right of another country cannot affect the operation of the mandatory rules of the country with which the contract is actually connected.
