De Pinna is a long established firm of scrivener notaries in London dating back to 1772. It currently comprises eleven fee earners who practice solely as notaries. Each scrivener notary is fluent in at least one European language in addition to English. The firm provides notarial, translation and legalisation services in respect of documentation for virtually all countries. We have the expertise to issue notarial certificates and deeds in virtually all widely spoken languages and have found that this significantly facilitates their acceptance by overseas authorities and jurisdictions. Our clients frequently instruct us to use our language expertise to liaise with foreign lawyers to clarify what documentation they require to be notarised. A particular notarial requirement under foreign law might be difficult to meet for a UK registered company and we will then play an important role in trying to come to a solution which is acceptable to the overseas lawyer.
With regard to our legalisation service we have years of experience dealing with the various Consulates in London with whom we have built up good relations. We know their specific requirements and therefore pride ourselves on being able to obtain consular legalisation as quickly and efficiently as possible.
If translation or legalisation is required in addition to notarisation we have the expertise to provide the full service in the most efficient way.
Our main office is in the west end of London and we have a satellite office at Canary Wharf.
