Law (general)
Portuguese term or phrase: fazer jus
Parallel texts PT/ES/ENfrom the EU:

1) Os Estados-Membros possuem, uma vez que apenas são vinculados aos objectivos da directiva, uma margem de apreciação na transposição para direito nacional a fim de poderem fazer jus a especificidades nacionais. A transposição é obrigatória dentro do prazo fixado na directiva. Na transposição de directivas os Estados-Membros têm de escolher as formas nacionais mais adequadas para garantir a eficácia prática do direito comunitário (artigo 10.º (ex-5.º) do TCE , "effet utile").

2) Los Estados miembros, a causa de la vinculación exclusiva con los objetivos de la directiva, tienen un margen de actuación en la trasposición al Derecho nacional ***para poder tener en cuenta las particularidades nacionales respectivas. Existe una obligación de trasposición en el plazo establecido por la directiva. En la trasposición de la directiva, los Estados miembros elegirán las modalidades internas más adecuadas para garantizar la eficacia del Derecho comunitario (artículo 10 (5) del Tratado CE).

3) Since the Member States are only bound by the objectives laid down in directives, they have some discretion, in transposing them into national law, ***in taking account of specific national circumstances. Transposition must be effected within the period laid down in a directive. In transposing directives, the Member States must select the national forms which are best suited to ensure the effectiveness of Community law (Article 10 (5) ECT, ‘effet utile').

My context:
Mediante pagamento de quaisquer desses tributos pela Contratante, a Contratante, imediatamente, ****fará jus a reaver da Contratada o valor pago, junto com todas as despesas diretas e razoáveis incorridas pela Contratante em relação ao mesmo ou a compensar esse valor com quaisquer quantias devidas pela Contratante à Contratada.

A Contratada renuncia a qualquer reivindicação que possa vir a ter por: (a) qualquer lucro a que a Contratada possa de outro modo ***fazer jus … que não pelas disposições desta Cláusula … ou (b) quaisquer outros danos, inclusive perda de lucros antecipados oriundos ou atribuíveis à rescisão deste Contrato nos termos desta Cláusula

My context does not seem to comply with either the dictionary definitions of 'fazer jus' or the contextual meaning atrributed to 'fazer jus' in the EU extracts above.

The general notion in my context seems to be to 'do right by',0make amends', 'make good' but even so, both contexts seem to require a different word in EN.

make good

In other words, the Contratante pays the taxes and then contratada has to "to make good" those amounts.

To make good= to pay....after all my roundabouts..so simnple

It certainly does not mean that the Contratada is entitled to those tax amounts!

In other contexts, fazer jus= to do justice to...to do something properly...

I fail to see how entitlement could be involved in this part of the structure..
