What is a Notary?

In England and Wales, a Notary Public is a highly specialised lawyer and member of the third and oldest branch of the legal profession (including solicitors and barristers). Notaries are appointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury on authority from the Crown with the Archbishop of Canterbury’s jurisdiction being exercised through the Court of Faculties, which is one of the oldest courts in England and Wales.

Notaries deal with the preparation and authentication of documents for use overseas. The office of notary is an internationally recognised legal one.  This means that a notary’s signature and seal of office lends authenticity to a document, which can subsequently be relied on by overseas individuals and institutions.

Not all solicitors are notaries and we number around a mere 770 in England and Wales. As a notary, I am neither a “professional witness” or a rubber-stamping exercise. If you have been asked to get a document notarised, then my role is as follows:

  • To ensure that you understand the document and intend to be bound by it.
  • To ensure that you have the authority to execute that document.
  • To authenticate the contents of that document.




About Me

Having worked in the financial services industry after graduating in law from the University of Exeter, I qualified as a solicitor and practised for a number of years in private client law. I undertook my notarial practice qualification at University College London and qualified as a Notary Public in 2017. I now focus on my notarial practice, whilst acting as an Associate Lecturer in law at UWE.

I am an active member of Devon and Somerset Law Society and I chair the International Relations Sub Committee, which ensures that I help maintain well entrenched and established links with lawyers in overseas jurisdictions.

Outside of work, I travel extensively, but also enjoy winding down with a good book!
