James receives Regional Notary Public of the Year Award

October 2014

We are very pleased to announce that this firm’s Partner, James Couzens, has been awarded ‘Regional Notary Public of the Year’ for the South East.

The Regional Notary Public awards are designed to recognise exceptional performance and acknowledge one distinguished notary in the regional category.

There are 800 notaries in the UK.   With 14% of the regional votes, James secured the most nominations in the South East regional category from industry peers including senior executives in the finance market.

For over four years, James has been successfully helping individuals and businesses with a wide range of notarial matters such as witnessing powers of attorney, empowering overseas agents or lawyers to act for clients, preparing documents for the purchase or sale of property abroad, authenticating documents for immigration or emigration purposes or to marry or work abroad, or other business documents and transactions.  He is responsible for legalising many of those documents at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office or relevant embassy.

When asked how he felt about receiving the award James explained “I’m delighted, it has been a busy year with a lot of triumphs and challenges so it’s great to be recognised for a job I love and for my achievements and hard work.  It is the highlight of my career and an award I will cherish”.

Congratulations James!
