Notarising your documents

While many Notaries are Solicitors, their additional qualification means they are recognised professionally abroad and can undertake work that a non-Notary Solicitor cannot.

If you have purchased real estate abroad, or if you are in the UK needing to deal with affairs in another country, our specialists can help you. We can also support and guide you if you are looking to set up a company outside the UK.

We will work with you to understand your situation, drawing on our expertise to provide clear, practical and commercial guidance tailored to your needs. We can attest, authenticate and certify paperwork for personal and corporate use alike. Whatever your priorities or concerns, we will assist with the notarisation of your documents so they are fit-for-purpose in foreign jurisdictions.
