General power of attorney

General power of attorney – the term refers to authorization document which has been signed by the client toward their hired bona fide lawyer. The Civil Law in most countries gives the holder of such a power of attorney (called “general proxy”) the legal rights to represent the authorizer/principal before all local authorities, institutions, governmental bodies and private individuals, as well to perform any kind of legal actions as if it was the authorizer himself. It is important to be detailed here that in some jurisdictions many of the above bodies very often decide not to recognize or accept such a power of attorney, as they insist for specific rights to be detailed in, although this is not necessary in singing general power of attorney.
