Bus/Financial - Accounting / commercial contract
Portuguese term or phrase: protestar um título
I know what it means in PT but how is it in English? - is there something like 'cartório de protestos" in the Anglo-saxon legal system?
The sentence is:
A Contratada concorda em responsabilizar-se por todo e qualquer protesto indevido apresentado contra a Contratante.

I would use the generic term, since we don't know exactly what kind of "título" this is. This way you cover "all bases" :)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Negotiable_instrument

A negotiable instrument is a document guaranteeing the payment of a specific amount of money, either on demand, or at a set time, with the payer named on the document. More specifically, it is a document contemplated by or consisting of a contract, which promises the payment of money without condition, which may be paid either on demand or at a future date. The term can have different meanings, depending on what law is being applied and what country it is used in and what context it is used in.

Examples of negotiable instruments include promissory notes, bills of exchange, banknotes, and cheques.

protest (of a bond)


Explanation:
Sugestão baseada na discussão de um termo afim no KudoZ, bem como também no exemplo encontrado. Veja links abaixo.

Sugiro algo mais ou menso assim:

"The Contracted Party agrees to hold itself responsible/liable for each and every undue protest of a bond that may be presented by the Contracting Party."

Correção: "mais ou menos..."

Example sentence(s):
  • Glasco cites, without contradiction, a number of cases in which the Attorney General in a similar course of conduct permitted the filing without protest of bonds by taxpayers though the 20-day filing period had expired.
