Personal Jurisdiction: General and Specific
A court’s personal jurisdiction of a corporation may be general (i.e., all-purpose) or specific (i.e., conduct-linked).
General jurisdiction over a corporation typically in the (1) place of incorporation, (2) its principal place of business and/or (3) in places where the corporation’s activities are substantial.
In contract, specific consideration requires consideration of the “relationship among the defendant, the forum, and the litigation.” Andra v. Left Gate Prop. Holdings, Inc., 453 S.W.3d 216-26 (Mo. 2015).
