I was admitted as a Notary Public in 2010 after completing the Postgraduate Diploma course in NOTARIAL PRACTICE at University of Cambridge and was admitted as a solicitor in 1992.
What is a Notary?
A Notary is a qualified lawyer - a member of the third and oldest branch of the legal profession in England and Wales. Notaries are appointed by the Court of Faculties of the Archbishop of Canterbury and are subject to regulation by the Master of the Faculties. The rules which affect Notaries are very similar to the rules which affect Solicitors. They must be fully insured and maintain fidelity cover for the protection of their clients and the public. They must keep clients' money separately from their own and comply with stringent practice rules and rules relating to conduct and discipline. Notaries have to renew their practising certificates every year and can only do so if they have complied with the rules.
e-Notarisation with e-Apostille
Our Notary Public is able to use Qualified Electronic Signature (QES) to notarise documents and obtain e-apostille from the FCDO. Please check this is acceptable to the recipient authority before booking an appointment with us.

We will follow strictly the government’s updated guidance on health and safety during the period of this pandemic. We are imposing restrictions on attendance by clients regarding their health and possible exposure to the virus.
Members of our staff may wear face masks while meeting you. We will require a safe over 2-metre distance when meeting with our clients. We can confirm that none of our staff have returned from abroad or a high temperature in the past 14 days.
However, to protect our staff and clients, please inform us immediately if:
* you have returned from an infected country in the past 14 days, OR
* you have symptoms of the virus infection.
If necessary we can arrange a visit to hospital, care home, your home or workplace provided we adhere to government advice on preventing the Covid-19 infection. We may deal with the exchange of all information by email and then you sign the document from within your car at our car park with our notary watching at a safe distance.
