English term or phrase:served on vs served in
I have come through "served on" and "served in" in a legal document as follows:
..." after this statement of claim is served on you"
"If you are served on the USA or Canada".
You in both sentences refers to a lawyer.
Can you help me with the Arabic equivalent of both serve on and serve in?
Thank you in advance
