|German term or phrase: pro abs.|
|This appears after a person's name and before another persons's signature in a German attorney's letter to a client.|
I imagine it's Latin for something like "im Auftrag."
|English translation:"pro absentis"|
Lee, this indicates that someone is signing for the person who drafted the letter (that person is "absent"). So, "on behalf of", although not quite it, comes pretty close to the meaning.
