Law/Patents - Finance (general) / bankruptcy
Spanish term or phrase: corredor
From Panamanian statute

3. The bankruptcy shall be fraudulent
"si el fallo fuere corredor."
el fallo is the bankrupt.
This comes at the end of a list of things that would make the bankruptcy fraudulent, like hiding assets or favoring one creditor over another.

Any thoughts on "corredor"?
Thank you!

disagree  Giovanni Rengifo: This is what "corredor" usually means in finance, but it doesn't make sense here at all.

agree  MikeGarcia: It refers to certain causes because of which the law considers the bankruptcy situation to be fraudulent. Obviously the Panamanian law considers the fact of somebody being a broker one of these causes; the asker should investigate it......................

agree  Steven Huddleston: The original text is missing "del" before corredor?

agree  Andy Watkinson: I believe it does refer to an agent/broker - As the intermediary between two parties, it is debatable when the agent him/herself is actually the bankrupt party - see http://www.derechocomercial.edu.uy/ClaseAuxAut03.htm

agree  Nelida Kreer: The trouble lies with an evident typo in the source: "fallo" should read "fallido". Then it means that if the person filing bankruptcy were a stockbroker, this would make the filing fraudulent. Ergo, your translation is correct.
