Notary Services London

We provide notarial services to both private and corporate clients.

What is a Notary?

A Notary is a qualified and certified person that can authenticate documents or verify information in a form which is recognised in the UK and other jurisdictions.

When would you need a Notary?

  • businesses that trade with foreign countries
  • businesses dealing with international IP and contractual matters and one that often needs an urgent response.
  • when setting up a business abroad
  • buying or selling property
  • bringing or defending a court case in another country.

The process

Authentication of company documents can require detailed and complex investigations. It may be necessary for the Notary to establish that the company has been lawfully incorporated, that it has the powers to carry out the proposed transaction and that the company has authorised the officers or other individuals to sign on its behalf. Company searches may be required in support or as proof of certain corporate acts.

GSC is able to liaise with lawyers overseas and Foreign and Commonwealth offices, embassies and consulates and also work with top translators for all major languages. We can also arrange legalisation or Apostilles.

Fees

There is no standard fee for a notarial execution of documents; we will provide a cost proposal based on an initial no obligation discussion.  These are based on :

  • What service you need – witnessing signatures, certifying copy documents, obtaining Apostille etc
  • The type of documents concerned – for instance is it a Power of Attorney that you need witnessing
  • Who is signing or presenting the documents – are they personal papers or for a Company?
  • How many documents are there?
  • Which country they are to go to.

‘A small firm which punches well above its weight’ GSC Solicitors LLP undertook leasing transactions for several blue-chip corporate tenants, particularly in the media sector. It acted for a number of hotel owners regarding the acquisition and development of new hotels.

“We have found the service excellent, and it is for this reason we have continued to use GSC. The key strengths for us have been a commercial approach to deals that is often missing from solicitors, and a personal service based on a knowledge of us and our needs and long-term plans.”

“The main positive comparison we have noted from GSC is the personal touch and commercial acumen.”

“We have often used different legal firms for IP and other work in the past, but GSC’s commercial approach and professionalism, coupled with the excellent working relationship we have built up over a number of years makes it our preferred choice.”

“As a Financial Advisor I have been personally using and recommending GSC for over thirty years. I have referred clients of mine to them and only ever been thanked for the recommendation, which should convey the confidence I have in the individuals, and the firm.”

“Great result today. Just wanted to say thank you for your continued hard work in fighting our corner on this case. You have both been amazing. Michael incredible support and good ideas.”
