Why do some big law lawyers use "P.C." after their name?

I get it if you're a solo practitioner - Joe Blow, Professional Corporation - to set your practice apart from yourself. But why do big law partners do that?

The designation can apply to entities with more than one person. Odds are there is a senior parter with majority ownership.

They have their partnership shares held by a PC or hold the shares themselves and are employed by the PC, which has a "contract" with the partnership. It allows for tax benefits and more writeoffs. I bet if you look up the registered address of the P.C. its their home address, giving them the option to write off some of their mortgage as a business expense.

Makes sense, thanks for the explanation. I have to imagine that these tend to be the rainmaking partners.
