French term or phrase: porter considération
This is an addendum to a Will in which the originally appointed executor has renounced this office.

Explanation:
This is a problem: if the first contrepartie is translated as consideration as opposed to quid pro quo or counterpart, then a different term has to be used in the second part.

BTW, an addendum to a Will, inc. in Canada, is called a *codicil*.
