Backing – this legal term finds application in the court proceedings in some jurisdictions, where it literally means “assisting”, “approving”; “covering” ( for example, the performed already legal actions, for example). In practice, clients can later officially approve some immediate actions done by their lawyer for protection of their interests without power of attorney. In other examples, higher courts can back or validate actions taken by lower courts.
