This is a court document written after the case documents have been examined.
Does anyone know what Pr stands for?

Pr. > providenciar (providência vs. pregão)
The court do (verily) order and direct vs. we do pray

I can't work out what part of speech, verb or noun. it is but - from the context followed by a subjunctive(foi pedido ao juíz que examinasse o processo e abrisse instrução) - think this is a providência rather than a pregão/ peititon and not a double-up with 'proceder':

Example sentence(s):
  • Assim, se desejar que sua procuração tenha prazo de validade, acrescente .... termo de revogação e providenciar a notificação ao outorgado

Asker: Thanks, Adrian! Providência makes sense in this case, but not 'pregão'.

neutral  MARK ROBERTSON: Pregão with that meaning is new to me. It's normally a type of auction in PT-BR.

  -> That's why a low confidence level. But your procurador friend will need to discount providenciar or procurar. (If this were Spanish, I'd take a bet on either of the foregoing).
