Law/Patents
English term or phrase: client matter
...and 4.5 hours drafting privilege log and reviewing closing documents for *client matter* (025519-0000).

This is part of an entry for a timesheet at a law firm. Client should preferably be translated as Mandant.
Simone Brinkmann-Robinson
für Mandant
Explanation:
Ich bin der Meinung, dass "client matter" nicht wörtlich übersetzt werden kann - was hier gemeint ist, ist, dass der Anwalt im Auftrag des Mandanten tätig geworden ist - im Gegensatz zu anderen Auftraggebern oder internen Angelegenheiten - und diesen Service jetzt berechnet. Ich würde deshalb lediglich "... Durchsicht von ... Unterlagen für Mandanten" angeben.

Vorgang eines Mandanten / Mandantenvorgang


Explanation:
the number in the parentheses gives the clue that a certain procedure or particular file of a particular client is meant.

"Mandantenvorgang" cannot be found on google and does not exist in the dictioinaries, but it is a permissible comnbination in German, if you want to use the shorter version.
