: Can someone please tell me the proper way to say the following...

: "You may not use the company logo without the EXPRESS WRITTEN consent of the CEO..." or "You may not use the company logo without the EXPRESSED WRITTEN consent of the CEO..." (Thank you)

JC--In legal writing it would be 'express written consent' which simply is a way of saying that the written consent must come before the actual use, but this expression has been generally replaced with 'prior written consent' to indicate what one is really trying to say--you must get the written consent before (prior) to actual use. Does that help?
