convenio is used as "agreement" as in "convenio laboral" collective agreement on work and conditions-"convenio comercial" trade agreement, etc.
Concierto- I have often seen translated as "accord"

Notes to answerer
Asker: Hmm...is this legally correct...? I was thinking of "concerted agreement" for concierto, but it still sounds exactly the same as convenio to me.

accord/settlement - arrangement

These are definitions for "convenio" and "concierto" from ACV-B. Huges Dicc. de términos jurídicos, although for "concierto" one of the meanings given is also "accord". Good luck
