Which phrase is best or preferred?

Recommended Posts

Are the phrases "at its sole discretion" and "in its sole discretion" equivalent? For example, Company A at/in its sole discretion can contribute

Or are there cases where it is more correct to use one or the other?

Or is only one the really correct phrase to use?

I see both and wonder. Thanks for educating me (again).

... more correct ...

Just my opinion, but anyone who can use this phrase probably doesn't have to worry about the original question.

I'm a retirement actuary. Nothing about my comments is intended or should be construed as investment, tax, legal or accounting advice. Occasionally, but not all the time, it might be reasonable to interpret my comments as actuarial or consulting advice.

d. rigby - Well said. I'm just wondering if there is a common or preferred usage convention.

M. Preston - Can't say that it's ever struck me that way (still doesn't), but it would come as no surprise to find out that you are correct.

Anyone else?
