Hello and welcome back after what we’re sure was a busy and eventful holiday season. Firstly, we would like to say Happy New Year to you all and best of luck for 2012. We’re diving head first into the blog this month, compiling and presenting all the legal information you may need to ease any dealings you might be faced with this year. Just take a look at the tags to the right of this page to see if any of them apply to any concerns you could have.

As you may know, Vincent Shannon is a Notary Public and is available to sign documents at our offices at 29 Main Street, Swords, County Dublin, or by special arrangement at other locations.

A Notary Public is a public officer constituted by law to serve the public in non-contentious matters usually concerned with international business.

Empowered to administer oaths, a Notary Public can also attest signatures and authenticate documents. Vincent Shannon can also draft Affidavits for use in foreign countries and can prepare declarations and affirmations.Mercantile Law also features in the work of a Notary who can receive and make protests, and can issue notarial certificates in respect of documents.

A Notary also draws up Powers of Attorney and other legal documents for use in foreign countries.

If you need the help of a Notary Public then never hesitate to contact Vincent Shannon, who is happy to attend the offices of other solicitors to assist you. Just remember that each person who appears before a Notary must identify himself or herself with a Passport or Driving Licence and Shannons will help you with the rest.

Again, we’d like to take this opportunity to say Happy New Year and all the best for the coming year.
