Law/Patents - Law: Contract(s)
Spanish term or phrase: peticion de dar .. (que pueda originar una contingencia)
From the same agreement re sale of shares as my other question:

Consistiendo la reclamacion de terceros en una peticion de dar o en una pretension de hacer o de no hacer reconducible a una peticion de dar que pueda originar una Contingencia, si el Vendedor esta de acuerdo ... los Compradores daran por zanjada la reclamacion sin litigar or recurrir contra la misma.

I can see the overall meaning but wonder if there is a specific term in UK law, ie for 'peticion de dar' rather than just 'peticion'.

Again, thanks in anticipation.
