Many business transactions necessarily require the assistance of a notary public who authenticates certain types of transactional or legal instruments, requests different register entries or drafts and authenticates the necessary requests for registry. The notary is a public officer constituted by law and directly supervised by public authorities.
Depending on the location, notaries provide a wide range of regulated legal services such as registrations or contract drafting. Areas of application are, for example, real estate and corporate law. Notarization might be necessary in order to acquire or dispose of a title in real estate, to transfer or pledge shares in a company, to increase a company’s share capital, to change its by-laws or to perform legally compliant measures. The execution of certain other official acts depends on the particular jurisdiction.
