Senior Consultant voted as President of The Notaries Society

7th August, 2013

Leading Chester-based law firm, Aaron & Partners LLP, is delighted to announce that one of its consultants has been voted in as the new President of The Notaries Society, the representative society for Notaries Public practising in England and Wales.

Barry Holland, a Licensing and Food Law Consultant, took up the two-year role of President following a vote from The Notaries Society’s council. The President heads The Notaries Society council and is responsible for promoting the profession both in the UK and abroad, as well as ensuring high standards among its members.

Of his appointment, Barry said, “I’m looking forward to this challenging role in the coming years as the legal world faces many reforms. The Government proposes a review of the regulation of legal services, which will directly affect The Notaries Society, and I embrace the challenging work involved.

“As representative of the society as its new President, I will meet with the Faculty Office and the Legal Services Board to discuss various issues, one of them being the proposed implementation of documents in electronic format. There is a huge amount of paperwork involved with notarial work, so this will make it easier and quicker for work to be carried out, especially for Notaries like me who have more than one office base.”

Barry became a Notary in 1980 and is the Editor of The Notary Newsletter. Of the 835 practising Notaries in England and Wales, 800 of them are members of The Notaries Society.

A Notary is a qualified lawyer and is appointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury and regulated by the Court of Faculties. They are primarily concerned with the authentication and certification of signatures and documents for use abroad. Their most common tasks are preparing and witnessing powers of attorney for use overseas; dealing with purchase or sale of land and property aboard; providing documents to deal with the administration of the estates of people who are abroad or own property abroad; authenticating personal documents and information for immigration or emigration purposes, or to apply to marry or to work abroad; authenticating company and business documents and transactions.
