No. 92-656.

June 23, 1992. Rehearing Denied August 11, 1992.

Gonzalo R. Dorta, Miami, for appellant.

Roy D. Wasson, Gars, Dixon Shapiro and M. Jeffrey Speno, Miami, for appellee.

Before COPE, LEVY and GERSTEN, JJ.


The trial court correctly concluded that the forum selection clause is permissive, not mandatory, see Granados Quinones v. Swiss Bank Corp., 509 So.2d 273, 275 (Fla. 1987), and that appellant has sufficient minimum contacts with Florida to permit the appellee's lawsuit to be maintained in this jurisdiction. See International Shoe Co. v. Washington, 326 U.S. 310, 66 S.Ct. 154, 90 L.Ed. 95 (1945). The motion to dismiss for lack of jurisdiction was correctly denied.

Affirmed.
