Notary Public available in Derry/Londonderry

A Notary Public is a public officer appointed the Lord Chief Justice of Northern Ireland.


Although Notaries are frequently associated with the solicitors’ profession, the Notary belongs to a separate and distinct branch of the legal profession. It is for this reason that the Notary profession is sometimes described by writers as the “third arm of the legal profession”.


Halsbury’s Laws of England describe the office of Notary Public as being one of great antiquity which is recognised in all civilised countries. The Notary does not have an adversarial function and does not undertake litigation through the courts.


William McCleery of our office was appointed to the office of Notary Public by the Lord Chief Justice of Northern Ireland on 16th August 2021. William is therefore one of 34 duly appointed public officers who is authorised to draw, attest or certify, under his official seal, deeds and other documents including educational certificates, conveyances of real and personal property, powers of attorney, wills and other testamentary documents and can draw up protests or other formal papers relating to occurrences on the voyages of ships and their navigation.


William can also present documents to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for legalisation if you also require an apostille.
