Providing legal services since 1788

Notary Public


I deal with most aspects of Notarial work and can seek to guide you through the requirements of different jurisdictions including the preparation, legalisation and certification of documents for use in a foreign country

When dealing with Private Clients I cover such matters as

  • Authentication and certification of identity
  • Execution of Powers of Attorney
  • Taking statements, declarations and affidavits for use abroad
  • Dealing with consent for minors to travel abroad

and for Business Clients such matters as

  • Authentication of all kinds of company and commercial documents
  • Powers of Attorney and authentication for company activities to be carried out abroad
  • Authentication of patent and trademark documents

This list is not exhaustive but I hope indicative


How much will be the notarial cost

I will seek to let you know how much the matter is going to cost before I start work requesting in the case of documents to be notarised copies thereof generally by them being scanned as I deal mainly in fixed fees. If you require me to attend a meeting of unknown length I will charge on a time basis being £125 per hour
