    Latter

    "X may not inform third parties of its work for Y without the latter's prior written approval."

    I'm not sure whether "the latter" is correct here since there seem to be at least three parties (X, Y, and third parties) and "latter" means "second of two." What do you think?

    Thanks a lot!

    It's OK, but to be clear you could say "without Y's".

    I think the write just assumed (as I did when reading) that it meant "the last."
