A Notary Public is an Officer of the Law and member of the third and longest established arm of the legal profession. I am appointed by the Court of Faculties of the Archbishop of Canterbury and subject to Regulation of the Master of Faculties.
I prepare and authentic legal documentation, which is normally used overseas or at various embassies and consulates. I authentic and sign a vast variety of documents for individuals, charities as well as various company/partnerships from sole traders through to Plc’s.
Notaries are vital to the smooth working of international trade and as part of my practice I meet a vast array of different nationalities. My Notarial work is separate to that of my Solicitors practice.
