We solve your problems

In foreign jurisdictions, certain documents used in court proceedings, property acquisitions and company transactions, or for government purposes, require a Notary Public to witness or validate the authenticity of documents.  We can assist you with all stages of this process or a discrete part of it, according to your needs, including:

  • Preparing Notary Certificates
  • Certifying copies of original documents
  • Verifying/certifying company documents and ASIC records
  • Verifying identities and/or signatures
  • Witnessing signatures to local and international documents
  • Securing Authentication or Apostille Certificates from DFAT
  • Arranging the legalisation of documents with a foreign Embassy or Consulate
  • Administering oaths for the giving of evidence
