Jump to: navigation, search

"Quid pro quo" is a Latin phrase which means "what for what." In other words, the phrase describes the context when something is given in return for something else.[1]

The phrase means the same thing as the English saying "a tit for a tat", or trading something for something else. It can also mean the same thing as "an eye for an eye".

Lawyers sometimes use this saying to mean "an even trade".
