Court representatives (procuradores) are law professionals who are responsible for representing clients before courts and tribunals. To do so, it is necessary for the client to grant a power of attorney in favour of the court representative (procurador).

The power of attorney can be granted by notarial deed, court appearance or electronically.

Notary-witnessed power of attorney

This is a deed granted before a notary public and serves to certify to the judge that a court representative (procurador) has been appointed to represent the party in the proceedings. The power of attorney generally covers all the procedural formalities.

This kind of power of attorney (which normally costs between 40 and 70 euros), by itself and unlike other powers of attorney, does not give the attorney-in-fact any other power of administration or disposition of assets.

Power of attorney through personal appearance in court (apud acta)

The power of attorney can also be conferred on the court representative (procurador) through a personal appearance before the Legal Counsel of the Administration of Justice, for which some judicial parties require an online appointment.
