Foreign Law

Tomaras Lawyers often undertake notarial functions which include the preparation of legal documents, such as a power of attorney or an agreement encompassing and formalising a transaction in a foreign jurisdiction. As lawyers the notary public is well qualified to carry out this legal work for its clients as well as perform the notarial function. 

Notaries are appointed by the Supreme Court pursuant to the Public Notaries Act 1997(NSW) and the Public Notaries Appointment Rules 1998.  A notary has been likened to "an International Justice of the Peace" because, almost exclusively, the work of a notary involves documentation required by a client for overseas use. The most common functions or tasks of notaries which are are able to assist our client include:

  • Authenticating official, Government and personal documents and information for use overseas
  • Witnessing signatures of individuals to documents and authenticating identity
  • Witnessing Powers of Attorney for use overseas, including from time to time, preparing them
  • Certifying true copies of documents for use overseas
  • For corporations and business, witnessing documents and authenticating status and transactions in any country
  • Dealing with documentation for land, property and deceased estates overseas
