Our Notary Public Service 

Sukhpal Matharoo, our specialist notary public in Bracknell, is one of only a few notary publics in the area who is qualified to help you with your notarisation, certification and attestation requirements. He and his team have vast experience working with individuals as well as businesses on a wide range of notarial matters. From countersigning official documents to setting up a power of attorney and certifying documents for working abroad, they can help you with your notarial matter. In addition, if your documents require legalisation, apostille or translation Sukhpal and his team can organise this for you.

What is a Notary Public? A notary public is a qualified lawyer that has taken an additional qualification. They take this through the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury and can then join the Roll of Notaries and become a notary public. Unlike solicitors (who provide a wide range of advisory services to their clients) notaries focus a very specific area. This includes the certification, authentication, preparation, and legalisation of documents for them to be used in the UK or overseas. Documents prepared by a notary public may be of a personal nature (passports, wills, degree or diploma-related documentation etc.) or of a corporate nature (certificates of incorporation, Board Resolutions or Minutes etc.). Notaries are recognised internationally, whereas solicitors are not.

Recent work examples

Our experienced notary public has worked with clients from a range of backgrounds and business sectors. Recent work examples include:

  1. Notarising powers of attorney for a UK director of a company looking to do business in the UAE. The client had been struggling to find a notary that could get the documents notarised and legalised in time for an end of month deadline. Due to our regular working relationship with the Arab British Chamber of Commerce, we were able to get this turned around within the deadline
  2. Director signature authority: Assisting a major IT company with the authorisation process to authorise directors of its UK entity to act on behalf of its Spanish branch office. Liaising with Spanish lawyers to arrange the preparation of the required documentation (powers of attorney) and thereafter reviewing the documents, attending the client to witness the signatures, notarising the documents and arranging their apostille
  3. Notarising a number of documents for use in the Philippines including in relation to obtaining a visa to visit the country, applying for a passport and setting up commercial entities in the country. Our experts also arranged legalisation of the documents so that they can be used in the Philippines
  4. Notarising documents relating to a US property sale. Our client had a closing deadline to get the documents notarised and within the US in under a week or risk losing her sale. We met the client on the same day and had the documents in the US within this deadline. We also arranged for scanned copies to be sent over in advance which smoothed the way to our client meeting her deadline and completing her sale
  5. Notarising sworn affidavits for use by one of our commercial clients as part of their application for a sponsorship licence
