Spanish term or phrase: oponer y contestar excepciones y reconvenciones
Estoy traduciendo un documento constitutivo - estatutos de una sociedad anónima venezolana. La traducción es para el Reino Unido.

En el artículo sobre las funciones de los directores dice:

"...intentar y contestar demandas, **oponer y contestar excepciones y reconvenciones**; contrademandar, convenir, desistir, transigir, conciliar y absolver posiciones juradas, comprometer en árbitros arbitradores o de derecho; seguir los juicios en los que intervengan, bien sea como demandantes o como demandados, en todas sus instancias e incidencias hasta su total terminación y ejecución, haciendo uso de todos los recursos ordinarios y extraordinarios, incluyendo el de casación; actuar en procedimientos de expopiación , amigables o judiciales...""

para excepciones, he encontrado: defences y también pleas
reconvenciones, he encontrado: counterclaims y defences

Mil gracias por su ayuda

The defendant may also raise counterclaims or affirmative defenses. If a defendant does raise counterclaims in her answer, the plaintiff must respond to those counterclaims with a pleading called an "answer to a counterclaim."

Replies are necessary to respond to counterclaims and to assert an affirmative defense to defenses asserted in an answer

The statement of case should not anticipate and respond to defences that the defendant might raise.
