1. What does it mean to be a legal representative?

A legal representative is a person who represents the company and acts on its behalf. This person is authorized to carry out several processes, besides assuming commitments and being able to make decisions in relation to the benefit of the company.

The sole signature of the legal representative empowers him/her to commit to the company’s prestige.

2. Who can represent a company?
