In our offices in Berlin, Essen, Frankfurt am Main and Hannover, we have civil-law notaries who, together with their specially qualified support staff, cover the entire range of notarial services.
In Germany, many legal acts need to be officially recorded by a publicly appointed civil-law notary in order to become valid. All the notaries who work in our offices are also German lawyers and normally still practice as such and, therefore, have a wealth of practical experience which they can draw upon when providing notarial services. While our notaries’ main tasks are to draft and officially record legal acts, they also perform a large number of other tasks, from the simple authentication of signatures or certification of copies to the performance of judicial tasks, such as recording applications for certificates of inheritance. The latter includes in particular advising the parties involved with a view to finding the right solution that takes the interests of all parties into account. Ultimately, whether the parties involved are satisfied often depends on whether their officially recorded declarations are implemented quickly and smoothly. For this purpose, the notaries in all our offices are supported by specially trained and qualified staff.
Our notaries are there to help you if you need assistance with, for example, the formation of companies, corporate transformations, or amendments to articles of association. In the area of real estate and property law, they are familiar with all the requirements that need to be taken into account in connection with property purchase, development, and handover agreements or the creation and cancellation of land charges.
Another area where our notaries provide comprehensive services is family and inheritance law and successions – for example, when it comes to drawing up prenuptial or postnuptial agreements, agreements regarding the apportionment of assets and liabilities or durable powers of attorney which allow an agent to handle the affairs of a principal if the latter becomes incapacitated, drafting wills for private persons or entrepreneurs and/or contracts of inheritance, or assisting with the conclusion of partition agreements among co-heirs.
Please do not hesitate to contact our notaries regarding any national or international matters that require notarial services. All our notaries record deeds in German and English, some of them can also record in French or Swedish.
