"To take or to have precedence over"
Explanation:
Préséance= droit consacré par l'usage ou fixé par l'étiquette d'être placé avnat les autres, de les précéder dans l'ordre honorifique. (Petit Larousse Illustré)

Precedence or precedency= the right of being first placed in a certain order. (Black's Law dictionary)

Your context will probably dictate how you want to best use the above expression.

Glad to help!
