Going beyond the borders.
International legal business is crucial for a global trading hub such as Hamburg and has also been embedded strongly in the history of our notary office.
In many cases, the stakeholders in a deed will be foreign individuals or overseas companies. In these cases, we help you make an accurate assessment of the foreign interest and can provide you with information concerning the power of representation (including the necessary documents) required for an overseas business. In this context, we can draw on our wealth of practical experience and can also consult the German Notary Institute (DNotI) for assistance in difficult cases.
For security reasons, foreign authorities may on occasion require you to notarise declarations before you proceed with their submission. Such procedure may be required when you apply for the registration of a particular trademark. Typically, such cases will also require the formal certification of the civil law notary's signature by the competent authorities. We handle the business of obtaining all of the declarations and documents on your behalf.
Notarial deeds may also be drawn up in a foreign language. English-language deeds can be recorded by any of the civil law notaries working in our office. Deeds can also be recorded in other languages (such as French or Spanish) on a case-by-case basis.
