In the face of the epidemic hazard and restrictions of the movement of people, a practical question arises how to ensure proper representation of capital companies (limited liability companies and joint‑stock companies; collectively: company).

Companies are represented by a management board. Usually, the rules of representation are set forth in company’s articles of association; in practice companies choose joint representation which requires two board members to act together or one board member to act together with a commercial proxy.

Do the two board members or the board member and the commercial proxy have to sign an agreement or its termination or withdrawal statement at the same time?
