Law/Patents - Law (general) / Articles of association
French term or phrase: pouvoirs...dévolus
"ARTICLE 16 : DECISIONS DE L’ASSOCIE UNIQUE OU DES ASSOCIES

L’associé unique exerce les pouvoirs qui sont dévolus par la loi aux associés réunis en assemblée générale. Il ne peut déléguer ses pouvoirs."

In fact my question is more about the overall meaning of this sentence. I think there's a word, if not two, missing: "qui LUI sont dévolus par la loi PAR les associés..."

Par and not aux...

What do you think?

Explanation:
L’associé unique exerce les pouvoirs qui sont dévolus par la loi aux associés réunis en assemblée générale.

The sole ...... shall exert the powers that the law confers on ..... when gathered in a general assembly

Ok - that is a rubbish translation but all they are saying is that if there is only one guy, he shall have the powers normally conferred on the whole group of guys when there are several
