French term or phrase:tient
Le Directeur Général tient de la loi des pouvoirs propres. Il assume, sous sa responsabilité, la direction de la Société et représente la Société dans ses rapports avec les tiers. Il est investi des pouvoirs les plus étendus . . .
It's clear that 'special powers' is a term that applies to heads of state, politicians, the military and lawyers. But would it also be the appropriate term to describe the legal authority of the head of a company?
