power of attorney
Power of Attorney is a legal document which enables a person who can not be present at legal proceedings to authorize another person to act on his/her behalf. Permission granted to represent another in legal proceedings is based on an agreement to represent as confirmed in written form – the power of attorney - which serves to authorise the third person. The power of attorney may be granted in full,, to a limited extent or only for the particular legal proceedings that are specified in the document.
