THE INSTITUTE OF REPRESENTATION IS LIQUIDATED IN AZERBAIJAN
President Ilham Aliyev approved amendments to the Law on Advocates and Advocacy, Civil Procedural and Administrative Procedural Codes.
In a number of lawsuits, the representative's institution was replaced by a more professional - advocacy institution, and the advocacy institute was further strengthened.
According to the new The Civil Procedural Codeules, only a close relative of a natural person will be allowed to participate as a legal representative in the courts. In cassation instance the activities taken by representative will not be permitted.
From now on, on behalf of legal entities only those, who were authorized by the Charter of the company or its employees, who were granted special authority by that legal entity will be able to take part in the courts.
The amendments come into force on January 1, 2018.
