The MyNotary member for Chichester is Michael Camps. Working within the law firm Irwin Mitchell, Michael also specialises in commercial and corporate law.
As a notary he has considerable experience dealing with a wide range of documents, both for domestic and foreign use, including those that affect:

- The formation of foreign subsidiary companies

Appointments and Short notice meetings
Appointments are generally available between 9 am and 5.15 pm. If necessary you may be able to arrange an appointment outside of these hours, but there may be an additional cost for this service.
Official and transactional documents often require the seal of a notary public to confirm their authenticity. This is much more common when they are meant for international use, such as personal documents used for immigration purposes, and those dealing with the purchase or sale of land abroad.
In these cases, you may need to have the documents authenticated by a notary and then legalised by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) by means of an apostille. Depending on the country concerned the documents may need further legalisation by the consulate of the relevant country. The FCO and the foreign consulates will usually only accept authentication by the seal of a notary public – a solicitor’s signature will not be accepted.
What ID is required?
You must bring an original identification document (e.g passport, driving licence or national identity card) for each individual signatory, as well as proof of residence such as a recent utility or council tax bill (this can’t be a bill downloaded from the internet). If we’re acting for a corporate client, we will also need evidence of the due incorporation of the company or entity.

Notary Public, Michael Camps also specialises in commercial and corporate law with clients ranging from public companies through to professional partnerships.

He recently advised a major manufacturing company in connection with trade mark licences for the UAE and Egypt.
