Notarial & Legalisation Services

Operating from the Reading offices of Blandy & Blandy LLP, Friar Street Notaries notarises and legalises documents for use overseas.

Our Expertise

Clients with dealings outside of the UK will often require documents to be authenticated by a notary to be accepted by public and legal authorities in another country.

Our two qualified notaries (who are also partners and solicitors within the firm) advise both individuals and businesses, including public and private companies, multinational organisations and UK subsidiaries.

Offering unrivalled coverage and a full range of notarial services, we can provide you with a cost-effective, convenient and responsive service and assist with urgent matters at very short notice.

We can also handle legalisation requirements, whether at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office or any other relevant embassy/consulate. These can be dealt with quickly using our London agent’s expedited service in cases of urgency.

Please read our frequently asked questions (FAQ) before making an appointment.
