payment of liquidated damages

The trouble with using the term of penalty in Anglo-Am. law (Barron's US Law dictionary: penalty clause) law is that this implies it is unenforceable, whereas a liquidated damages (AmE: damage) clause is enforceable.

This is a rudimentary distinction in the target- rather than the source-language.

Example sentence(s):
  • If the liquidated damages act as a penalty, they cannot be enforced. This means that you will have no way of recovering losses
