The notarial profession is by far the oldest branch of the legal profession in England and Wales. A notary, also known as a notary public, is a qualified legal official appointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Notaries deal principally with the certification and authentication of documents for use abroad, but will also deal with the swearing of oaths and the complex procedures that need to be observed if bills of exchange are dishonoured.
In January 2021 there are about 720 notaries holding current practising certificates in England and Wales—compare this to over 206,000 solicitors on the Roll in December 2020.
My aim is to bring a fresh modern approach to my notarial practice whilst observing its ancient traditions. That is why I am introducing client information packs that can be downloaded from this website; fixed fees for some notarial procedures and flexible appointments to suit you and your business.
I am a member of the Notaries Society and of course my practice is fully insured. As a general notary I am able to practice throughout England and Wales.
