English term or phrase: corporate entity En-Ge
XYZ is a corporate entity formed by A, B and C.

My search has only yielded Single Corporate Entity = Kapitalgesellschaft.

Would something like gemeinsame Firma/Tochter or the like do? Or is it an Aktien- or Kapitalgesellschaft?

TIA,
Kristina

German translation:Gemeinschaftsunternehmen
Explanation:
Gemeinschaftsunternehmen bestehend aus den drei Gesellschaften. Here the context is clearly defining the term. Answer one is excellent, but I don't think it applies here. 'corporate entity' is used with the specific meaning of Rechtspersoenlichkeit einer Koerperschaft, as well as with the more global meaning above.

Rechtspersoenlichkeit


Explanation:
According to Romain, it is called Rechtspersoenlichkeit einer Koerperschaft. I have come across this term in many legal texts and it usually refers to the distinct status of a corporation which sets its existence apart from the status of its shareholders, thus to have a name of its own, to sue and be sued in its own name as well as the right to buy, sell and lease its property in its own name.

...Gesellschaft


Explanation:
You're surely aware of the fact that 'corporate entity' can stand for any legal form (Rechtspersönlichkeit einer Körperschaft) of institution, company, corporation, trust, etc.

Therefore, I assume the contract is made out as a joint venture between English and German partners, whereby the sentence given by you does not reveal whether or not you're dealing with an 'Aktiengesellschaft' or Kapitalgesellschaft' or another type of legal entity.
'English-deutscher Gesellschaft', therefore, should do it .
