German term or phrase: L.S. gez.
This precedes a signature on a notarial document; Google shows other documents with L.S. gez. "Gez" obviously refers to "gezeichnet" and my guess is that L.S. is for some Latin formulation like "litteris suis" meaning personally signed, but I hate to give the client a mere guess.
