There is a whole school of legal thought out there that essentially says that all law is really about remedies.

There are entire law school courses devoted to the subject of remedies, and the law concerning remedies can be very complex.

Just as an example, Canadian law struggled for over a century with the question of whether one could obtain compensation for purely economic loss arising indirectly from tortious conduct.

Any time you encounter a court action that has been commenced in an unusual location, or in one appropriate location rather than another appropriate location, it is very likely that the location was chosen because the law there makes available one or more advantageous remedies.
