Lasting powers of attorney

Under German law, it is possible to appoint an agent to make decisions on a person's behalf, when that person lacks the mental capacity to do so. It can even be used to administer the estate if it is stipulated that it does not end with the death of the principle (Vollmacht über den Tod hinaus).
