Spanish term or phrase: patrocinado
"El honorario del abogado patrocinante de cada acreedor será fijado sobre la suma liquida que debiere pagarse al patrocinado en los casos de acuerdos preventivos homologados."

This comes from an Argentine statute on legal fees (honorarios) and all the different cases where said fees apply. This particular section is regarding insolvency, bankruptcy, and reorganization proceedings. Does patrocinado here simply refer to the client being represented?

Explanation:
Joshua: "Does patrocinado here simply refer to the client being represented?"

Answer, yes.

The "abogado patrocinante" is the principal (often only) lawyer who works under cover of a Power of Attorney" ('poder') signed by the client. The abogado patrocinante may be assisted by other "apoderados", but the 'patrocinante' is the one who is supposed to fix the client's legal strategy in the case at hand.
