Power of attorney and advanced healthcare directive
When a person becomes legally incompetent or needy, he gets dependent on the help of other people.
Only if you exercise your right of self-determination in the form of authorizations, you are able to define the acting person. This prevents public intervention in form of a legal guardian and critical situations in which an immediate reaction is needed - but not possible. Our offer consists of:
- power of attorney for administrative and personal affairs
- advanced healthcare directives (medical and nursing treatment requirements)
- management service agreements with representatives
- authorizations for companies and shares
- post-mortem authorizations for cases involving foreign elements
We also give advice regarding the preparation of a personal emergency file for the private and business sector.

Without a coherent strategy, a company cannot be successfully managed. During a strategy formulation process, the company’s vision should be identified and then the goals of a company can be derived from this vision.
