English translation:lawsuit involving the consequences of ...
Explanation:
Approximate synonyms for "lawsuit" include "litigation" and "legal action." All three of these terms are often used interchangeably in English. (Note, however, that "litigation" does not take an article -- we say "this litigation" but never "a litigation" -- just "litigation".)

Thus, we have: "Whereas, in a lawsuit [or "in litigation"] involving the consequences of the violation, by the grantor, of an exclusive concession contract..."

Cheers,
HC

dispute relating to the consequences...


Explanation:
Yes, as Heather indicates, the words listed are often used synonymously. The word "litige" can correctly be translated as "dispute", which respects register, refers to the whole of the matter in question. "Action", "litigation" would work well here too.
