    to cause

    I am not sure about the verb "to cause" in the following sentence:

    Partners have caused this Agreement to be duly signed by the undersigned authorised representatives in separate signature pages
    Is it correct? If yes, could you explain the meaining in the context and if it is a legal expression?

    Thanks a lot

    Re: to cause

    It's correct. The partners have made the signing happen.

    Your example is part of a legal document, but the verb cause can be used in any context.

    'When I stopped suddenly I caused the car behind to rear-end me.'
