English term or phrase: Special master
Hello,

I'm translating a text about an american law firm. The firm is in trouble after a name partner has been disbarred. The Bar is trying to force the managing partner to remove the partner's name, but he refuses. The Bar then gets a court order that gives a "special master" full control of the firm, which means this person can make changes in management, decide to take new clients or not, look at the accounts, etc.

What could be a French translation for "special master"? I thought of "administrateur judiciaire", but from my research I feel an administrateur judiciaire only takes care of the financial aspect.

Thanks!

special master
administrateur judiciaire


Explanation:
L'administrateur judiciaire est ce que l’on appelle un mandataire de justice. Ce n'est ni un fonctionnaire, ni un agent de l'État, mais un professionnel indépendant. Il est contrôlé en permanence par les tribunaux qui le désignent et le ministère public.

Sa mission peut être de surveiller les opérations de gestion, d’assister le chef d'entreprise pour les actes concernant ces opérations ou encore d’assurer entièrement l'administration de l'entreprise.

assurer entièrement l'administration de l'entreprise = full control of the firm, which means this person can make changes in management, decide to take new clients or not, look at the accounts, etc ?

disagree  Daryo: your reference has no connection whatsoever with the explanation you have given for your assumed translation - here is a case where a literal translation won't work.
