Spanish to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Law (general)
Spanish term or phrase:mandante
Hi, I'd appreciate your help with this term
I am translating a Petition for Ordinary Proceedings. Please take into account that similar words/synonyms are being used throughout the text and I am not sure that if they are being used to avoid repetition or to differentiate any detail. Basically, take into account that words such as cliente, principal, mandante, parte demandada are being used. I am seeing different translations in here for these words but I would like to know the exact term used in this type of document.
"La presente Demanda tiene por objeto principal que, por la Jurisdicción, se declare que entre las partes litigantes ha existido un contrato verbal de distribución en exclusiva en el que mi mandante ha ocupado la posición de distribuidor siendo la parte demandada la concedente.
La circunstancia de que mi mandante era el distribuidor en exclusiva de los productos XXXX en España, es un hecho incontrovertible, dado que la propia demandada lo ha reconocido así en las comunicaciones que mantenía mediante correo electrónico con mi principal."
Explanation: I think the use of "Mi mandante" rather than "el mandante" is an indication that the lawyer is referring to his client.

Notes to answerer
Asker: thanks again patinba :) I am coming to the conclusion is that the terms used are to avoid repetition.
Asker: Thanks for your help. Much appreciated. Though I think your answer is correct too, due to the context of my document, I would rather use grantor as the Procurador refers to the power of attorney granted several times throughout the text.
