English term or phrase:possessed
If it is kept in mind that the damage for which the agent is to be compensated consists in the loss of the value or goodwill he can be said to have possessed in the agency, then it can be seen that valuation ought tobe reasonably straightforward.
Explanation: On ne peut ni détenir ni jouir de la ou d'une volonté. On a ou on possède une volonté. On est doté d'une volonté... Donc on peut dire : "la valeur et la volonté dont il avait été doté",
"la valeur qu'on lui attachait et la volonté qu'il possédait", etc.
