French term or phrase: contradictoirement
seems strange in this context, in a contract: "Le producteur s'engage en outre a arracher immediatement a ses frais exclusifs la quantite de plants depassant la quantite autorisee, contradictoirement en presence de l'editeur ou de toute autre personne mandatee par lui."

in the presence of all parties, with all parties present
Explanation:
A "contre-expertise" is a surevy which is carried out in the presence of all parties. Thus "contradictoirement" means just that, the explanation of the term being that if all parties are present then anything which they may wish to disagree with or contest can be done there and then.

In fact, a bit redundant in your sentence as immediately afterwards, "en présence de" appears.
