Our notaries combine the dependability and integrity of the function with a modern service enterprise. Services include providing advice and notarisation in all aspects of life and business for which the law requires assistance from notaries. Our legal advice and contract drafting does not only address business and legal specifics, but is also practicable and reduces the chance of conflict.

In particular, notarial activities include notarisation and certification of the following:

  • Property purchase and donation deeds
  • Declaration of division (division into condominium ownership)
  • Incorporation of companies, entries into the commercial register
  • Purchase and transfer agreements, transfer of company shares and restructuring
  • Wills and testaments and deeds of inheritance, applications for a certificate of inheritance, renunciation of inheritance and arrangements for anticipated succession
  • Family law agreements (marriage contracts and divorce agreements)
  • Health care powers of attorney and living wills
