Notary office


Numerous legal transactions require a special legal form. Important transactions are subject to the condition of a notarial certification. This includes, for example, matters relating to company law and real estate law.
A notarial certification has a strict legal form which is recognised by law. The notary informs and instructs the parties to the document about these formal requirements and about the content and effects of the legal transaction which is to be certified. In addition, it should be ensured that legal transactions are clearly prepared, understandable and legally watertight for all those involved. In the course of the certification, the notary does not act on the side of one of the parties, but is always independent and impartial.
Using the services of its own notary in Herford, Rödl & Partner offers its clients the design and certification of contracts which are legally compliant. Our notary serves clients in Germany and other countries for all notarial matters and in particular in the areas of company law, real estate law and succession arrangements. Our lawyers work closely together in an interdisciplinary manner with our notary.
As far as there no co-operation prohibitions, a notarisation is possible through our notary to be able to guarantee the best possible implementation. In request, the notarisation can be made in the English language.
