English to French translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Law (general) / Will
English term or phrase:Overriding powers
I am not sure as to how to translate overriding powers in French. These refer to the powers of the trustees (powers of appointment, of transfer, of advancement) in the context of a will and property held in trust on behalf of the beneficiaries. Many thanks in advance for your suggestions!
Explanation: Dépendemment du contexte, le trustee se voit attribué un pouvoir discrétionnaire quant au choix des bénéficiaires...
Pour rester dans le contexte judiciaire, dérogatoires semble approprié.
