Spanish term or phrase: de beneficio general
"Tratándose de acciones posesorias, interdictas, mensuras, deslindes o de division de bienes comunes, se aplicará la escala del articulo 7 -primera parte- reduciéndose el monto del honorario en un veinte par ciento (20%), atendiendo al valor de los bienes conforme a lo dispuesto por el articulo
24, si la gestión hubiera sido de beneficio general; y con relación a la cuota parte defendida, si fuere en el solo beneficio del patrocinado."

Source is an Argentine statute regarding legal fees for attorneys, solicitors, etc. This particular section is about insolvency and bankruptcy cases. I don't particularly understand what is meant by the entire clause "si la gestión hubiera sido de beneficio general."

of general benefit
Explanation:
'de beneficio general' contrasts directly with 'en el solo beneficio del patrocinado' and a literal translation works well enough:

si la gestión hubiera sido de beneficio general
--> (for example)
if the case was of general benefit (as distinct from 'benefit only to the (named) client)

agree  Robert Carter: Yes, though perhaps of benefit to all concerned or all creditors.

  -> Perhaps. But it might also be of benefit to the "general public", the "nation". The translation should not be made more specific than the (indeterminate) ST.

agree  Manuel Cedeño Berrueta: I also think that “beneficio general” probably refers to all concerned parties, but the translation should maintain the ambiguity of the ST
