English term or phrase:Lloyd, McDonald & Robert, P.C.
Nombre de un bufete de abogados norteamericano. ¿Qué significa "P.C."?
Explanation: Hola, miembro del Privy Council (consejo privado del soberano (británico)) (Alcaraz). Una muestra explicativa:
Enlace 1: "The modern Privy Council consists of some three hundred people who hold or have held high legal or political offices (including all members of the cabinet who are appointed privy councillors on assuming ministerial office of cabinet rank), together with the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, the Speaker of the House of Commons, a number of Commonwealth statesmen, and British ambassadors. Appointment is made by letters patent, and is normally for life (appointments are customarily renewed by a new sovereign on succeeding to the throne), although a privy councillor may be dismissed if convicted of a serious crime, or removed at his or her own request, but both are extremely rare. A privy councillor must be a British subject and takes an oath of allegiance to the sovereign. He or she is addressed as The Right Honourable and may use the letters PC after his or her name".
