En toute circonstance, et notamment en cas de procédure judiciaire ou arbitrale, l'Assuré s'engage à user sans restriction de tous moyens en son pouvoir de nature à écarter sa responsabilité.

neutral  lenkl: perhaps, but who are "they"? "Pour son propre compte" would make sense but "Pour leur" doesn't and so in my opinion is not really translateable.

agree  Charlie Bavington: I think "they" has to refer to both the insured and the insurer (unless the grammar is seriously rotten), so the Insured is obliged to let the Insurer take care of all "proceedings" on behalf of the both of them.
