Law/Patents - Law (general) / company law
Spanish term or phrase: figura de derecho común
company law - legal report
context: "el representante legal actúa en virtud de la figura del mandato, en el cual la compañía otorga un Poder a su representante legal para que éste actúe a nombre de ella, no existiendo entre estos dos relación laboral, sino una figura de derecho común"
"derecho común" in my Legal Dictionary: "common law/law of the land", but what about "figura" = concept/principle/form? Muchas gracias!
