What services can our notary public in London offer?
Our notary in London can offer multiple services to natural persons and legal entities. Businesses can rely on our services for notarizing any type of corporate document, such as the articles of association and the memorandum (the statutory documents of a company, which grant legal personality), the certificate of incorporation and other similar papers.
Individuals can be helped in notarizing all types of documents, from personal documents (identity document, birth certificate, passport, marriage certificate) to contracts of various types. Moreover, if these documents have to be used in a foreign country, one will need to request an apostille, as long as the destination is a country included in the list of the states that apply the Hague Convention.
The apostille will be processed by our notary in London, but the entity issuing the document will be the Foreign & Commonwealth Office. Please note that our notary services in London include various types of consular services, but we can also help you in drawing a will.
In certain cases, both natural persons and legal entities may need to have various legal documents translated in the native language of the country where the respective papers must be submitted. If you need certified translation in English, you can easily rely on our notary public in London.

It must be noted that this document can also come in the form of a lasting power of attorney, which grants the right to a specific person, chosen by our client, to manage various aspects on your behalf for an unlimited period of time.
What is an apostille in London?
The apostille represents a legal certificate issued by a notary in London which is recognized at an international level. Basically, the apostille is added as an additional proof that certain documents presented by a person are legitimate, and the document itself can be easily understood by the officials of the country (or countries) where the person needs to perform a specific action. UK apostilles are completed following the Hague Convention. Related to this, we present the following:
- the Hague Apostille Convention was ratified in 1961;
- its regulations are applied by the Hague Convention on International Private Law, which is an institution that has 85 member states, plus the 27 member states of the EU (although the UK is no longer a part of the EU, it is still a member of this organization);
- the activities of the institution are not only limited to its member states, as it carries various operations in non-member states which are interested in becoming members (thus reaching the total number of states to approximately 150);
- the UK became a member of this organization on 15th of July 1955;
- in 2019, the institution adopted the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgements in Civil and Commercial Matters.
