Dutch to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Law (general) / Term in a notarial instrument
Dutch term or phrase:blijkende van...uit...
This is one of those archaic contractese terms appearing in a notarial instrument by means of which a company is amending its articles of incorporation. Van Dale seems to lack this particular use:
verscheen voor mij, [naam], notaris te Amsterdam:
de heer [naam],
ten deze handelende als alleen vertegenwoordigingsbevoegd bestuurder van de statutair te Amsterdam gevestigde vennootschap [naam]
hierna ook genoemd de "vennootschap",
***Blijkende*** van voormelde volmacht uit een onderhandse akte von volmacht die aan deze akte gehecht is.
I am unsure how to construct the phrase in English with both the "van" and the "uit." Thanks in advance for help.
Thanks so much for both answers (Vic's answer obviously has the benefit of being a grammatically complete sentence), but I chose "evidenced by" because of the corroboration of use in a law firm. Thanks again! 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
I am inclined towards 'evidenced', but would change your word order, e.g. 'The aforesaid power of attorney is evidenced by a private deed...'. Then you've got a proper, modern English sentence with subject, verb and object all in the right order!
Perhaps something like "Evidenced(?) by the aforesaid power of attorney in a private deed of power of attorney that is attached to this deed"?

...the aforementioned power of attorney appears from a private deed annexed to this deed.
"Appear" might not be the best choice, but here's one roughly similar phrase, which does use it:
SEC Info - Freeport McMoran Copper & Gold Inc, et al. - S-3 - On 4 ...
The said power of attorney appears from a private deed which has been attached to this deed after authentication by the appearer. ... www.secinfo.com/drW17.91f.d.htm - 40k

Explanation: appears from is a bit simplistic, imho, but also acceptable. Evidenced by is the standard translation we use at the agency I work for.
