Spanish term or phrase: C.P.
Some one who is signing a contract is referred to as "el C.P. Fulano de..." Could the C.P. be anything except "Contador Público"? It must be that, but sometimes I get suspicious about "obvious things". Thanks to all.

I did want a translation, too. I wasn't sure if a CP was a CPA in English or only an "accountant."
Thanks for a good reference. You have been very helpful.
Our mutual friend & listero, Alex Padres, answered me privately first, but I cannot give him Kudos, I guess.
Cheers
