adstipulator (ad-stip-y[schwa]-lay-t[schwa]r), n. [Latin] Roman law. An additional party to a contract who could enforce the contract along with the principal (i.e., the stipulator). ? An adstipulator who enforced an agreement would have to, in turn, pay the stipulator. An adstipulator was brought in to avoid the rule that a person could not directly stipulate for payment after death.
