German term or phrase: zugleich handelnd ...
"Vertrag zwischen Firma A und Firma B
hier zugleich handelnd für alle Unternehmen, an denen sie selbst oder Ihre Gesellschafter (allein oder gemeinsam, direkt oder indirekt) mehrheitlich beteiligt sind (Konzernunternehmen)"

I know what this means, but I don't know a good way to put it in English. I think I remember coming across a more or less standard formulation for this or for a very similar phrase in this forum even, but I can't remember it. Can anyone help?
Thanks very much in advance.
