Spanish term or phrase: empresa agenciada
This term appears a brief in a Colombian lawsuit between two companies. The following sentence involves a company and an individual (the supposed agent):

"En el contrato celebrado entre ABC y SP, éste no aparece designado como 'agente' ni aquella como la 'empresa agenciada', condiciones con las que se califica a dichas partes en este hecho."

Am I right that "empresa agenciada" means "represented company" (as in "company represented by an agent")?

Explanation:
... "agenciar" has a different meaning (eg, negotiate); however, Latin-American variants, being what they are, may often be influenced ("corrupted") by similar words in English, and I do believe that your guess is right on.

Apparently, they want to make clear that there exists no relationship of agency between them.

Yo te sugiero: "Managed company"


Explanation:
Desde que en este caso estamos hablando (supestamente) de un contrato de agencia (que no se sabe si en realidad ambas partes lo han configurado) pues por lo que veo es lo que se quiere intentar demostar. Si es ésta tu intención de denotar que se ha celebrado un contrato de agencia, entonces te sugiero Managed, si no, si estamos hablando de una simple representación pactada por estas empresas para la celebración de determincados negocios, entonces tenés razón, es Represented Company.
Good luck.
by the way, I´m a lawyer!

represented company sounds all right... look at the samples


Explanation:
below and the meaning of the word "agenciada" which is used as "represented or managed by"....
although another possibility, which sounds better to me is:

"promoting company" one of the definitions of agenciar is to promote...

promoting company and in your next question would be "promoted products"

En toda esta tragedia del pago del magisterio subyace una política deliberada agenciada por el Ministerio de Hacienda y Planeación Nacional de privatizar la educación pública. Desmantelando los recursos del situado fiscal definidos claramente en el artículo 10° de la Ley 60/93, pretenden transferirle la responsabilidad de la educación principalmente a los municipios.

La persona nombrada en primer lugar, con quien el actor afirma haber contraído matrimonio católico, presumiblemente mayor de edad, pues la demanda sólo dice que son menores Daniel Enrique y María José Muñoz Retamozo, está agenciada oficiosamente por el actor José Luis Muñoz Barraza. Sin embargo, éste, a pesar de tener la obligación de hacerlo con arreglo al artículo 10 del decreto 2591 de 1991, no manifestó por qué su representada no estaba en condiciones de promover su propia defensa. Es claro, entonces, que esta anomalía compromete la legitimidad de la intervención de Lía Retamozo Conrado, impidiendo que la Sala pueda tenerla como sujeto procesal integrante de la parte actora.

tampoco es serio afirmar que miles de campesinos del

una organización agenciada y gestionada por los
mandaderos de la corruptela costeña

You are right


Explanation:
whatever the nature of the representation (and the varieties are infinite, not just management or sales, so I believe this is the safe side).

nor as the company/business CONTRACTED TO BE REPRESENTED


Explanation:
Agency is a contractual arrangement with rights and responsibilities to perform certain agreed upon actions with the hope of effecting the desired results for the benefit of its client. Some agency agreements can be oral but to stand up in court they must be written. Hope this is helpful to you. AWatts
