German term or phrase: Rechtssubjekt
Kontext: Testament

Ich verfüge, dass alle Schulden, die ich gegenüber einem *Rechtssubjekt der USA* habe, aus meinem amerikanischen Vermögen bezahlt werden.

Wie kann man *Rechtssubjekt* übersetzen? Das können doch natürliche und/oder juristische Personen sein, oder? Gibt es da einen klaren Rechtsbegriff? Danke!
