The shareholder may be represented at the shareholder’s meeting by a attorney-in-fact appointed less than one year, who is a shareholder, a manager of the Company or a lawyer; in the publicly-held company, as in the case of the Company, the attorney-in-fact may also be a financial institution, leading the investment fund manager to represent the condominium owners.
