What does quid pro quo mean?

Category: Law


Quid Pro Quo is a Latin phrase that translates to “something for something”. It is an expression that is often used in legal and financial matters to express a reciprocal agreement between two parties. For instance, when an item or service has been traded in return for something of value, it is said to be quid pro quo. So, if someone needs a favor and a quid pro quo is implied, it means that something must be done in return.
