Need a Notary Public?

Tuesday, August 08, 2017

Tony Coupe, one of the partners in the firm, is a Notary Public and is available, on appointment, to provide notary services.

A Notary Public is a senior practising lawyer who holds a unique public office.  A Notary Public has, amongst other things, the internationally recognised power and authority to witness signatures on legal documents, administer oaths and certify the authenticity of legal documents, under official seal in a manner that renders them acceptable for use overseas, unlike Justices of the Peace, who are able to carry out these roles in respect of documents to be used in New Zealand only.

Examples of our Work

  • Authenticating the execution of documents
  • Administering oaths/swearing affidavits
  • Taking declarations
  • Certifying copies of documents
  • Authenticating the validity of documents
  • Certifying documents as true copies of the originals
Tony Coupe is based in our Albany Office.
