In Haec Verba

In Haec Verba (meaning "in these words") is a phrase in Latin legal usage, which refers to incorporating verbatim text into a complaint, pleading or other legal document as was mentioned in a deed or agreement which is in question or cause of dispute, or in another legal instrument (such as a legal description, statute, etc.).[1] This may be done either by reciting the words verbatim in the text or in some cases by attaching a copy with the pleading or other legal instrument.

For example, Delaware Code, tit. 8, § 102(b)(2) permits a corporation to enter into a compromise with its creditors if the corporation has included the specific language of the statute in haec verba in its certification of incorporation; thus, the exact language of the statute must be recited verbatim in the certificate of incorporation in order to take advantage of this statutory provision.
