Spanish term or phrase: ante la exigencia de responsabilidades planteadas por
This is from a contract where a Company A (LA EMPRESA) provides services to Company B and acts as the Data Processor for Company B. Here they are talking about the power to withhold (taxes/amounts).

I'm not sure about the portion that says "ante la exigencia de responsabilidades planteadas por".
What would be a good translation into US English for that?

Context:

Facultad de retención
La EMPRESA faculta expresamente a COMPANY B a efectuar retenciones y/o compensación de importes de la facturación en los supuestos de existir contingencias o ante la exigencia de responsabilidades planteadas por empleados, subcontratistas, terceros o Autoridades (Laborales, Seguridad Social, Administrativas o cualesquiera otra) y aquellas que se deduzcan del cumplimiento del contrato.
