French term or phrase: à l'effet de faire cesser son préjudice
This is taken from a business letter regarding a contract dispute. Trying to find the most appropriate English phrase, equivalent in terms of legal force. Complete sentence as follows:

"En conséquence, vous comprendrez qu’en cas de constatation par la sociéte ABC d’une violation des droits rappelées ci-dessus, ABC n’hésitera pas à agir par toutes voies judiciaires utiles à l’effet de faire cesser son préjudice."

(intended) to halt any detrimental effects thereof
Explanation:
Hello,

à l'effet de = with the purpose/intention of

faire cesser = to have stopped

son préjudice = its detrimental effects/consequences (the contract in dispute)

Literally,

"with the intention of having stopped detrimental effects"

In plain, natural English suitable for formal legal language:

"(intended) to halt any detrimental effects thereof "

Finally "thereof" is referring to the pronoun "son."

I hope this helps.
