una pena convencional/contractual


Explanation:
In ProZ.Com glossaries several times as in the first entry: danos liquidos y determinados etc.

Though a contractual penalty is gen. unenforceable in Eng. law, but the courts WILL upold liquidated damages as a 'genuine pre-estimate of the loss', I don't get the impression that's case in Span. etc. law where the pena is enforceable.

indemnización pactada


Explanation:
Según el Diccionario de términos económicos, financieros y comerciales de Alcaraz-Varó y Hughes,
liquidated damages
Indemnización por daños y perjuicios exigible y líquida o determinada por operación matemática, indemnización cuyo monto ha sido fijado o convenido en un contrato.

Obviamente, la operación matemática es la prevista o convenida (xcuando no se ha previsto la cantidad misma). Por ejemplo, un 20% de los productos encargados y luego cancelados antes de su entrega.
En todo caso se trata de una indemnización pactada o prevista.
Se parece mucho a lo que dice Counsel, pero "indemnización" es aquí preferible a "pena".
