Thursfields lawyer launches notary practice in the Black Country

A senior lawyer at Thursfields Solicitors has started her own notary practice in the Black Country after qualifying in the ancient and respected legal profession earlier this summer.

A notary public is an internationally recognised lawyer who deals with the certification and authentication of documents for use anywhere in the world by attaching their signature and seal.

Pam Deol is already a Senior Associate Solicitor in Thursfields’ Halesowen office, but passed the extra qualifications in June and is now entitled to practice as a Notary Public and Commissioner for Oaths on her own account.

Pam who is also a specialist in Contentious Probate and property disputes at Thursfields, said: “I’m delighted to have qualified in this extra branch of the law.

I am now a Notary Public for England and Wales, and am a member of the Notaries Society which means I can provide notarial services to both private individuals and corporate clients who have businesses or connections overseas.

I am also fluent in Punjabi and Hindi and have sufficient knowledge to prepare a notarial act in both languages, as well as English.

I can provide this trusted role for anyone who needs official authentication of documents.”

A notary public is a member of the third and oldest branch of the legal profession in England and Wales, appointed by the Court of Faculties of the Archbishop of Canterbury and subject to regulation by the Master of the Faculties.

Their main functions are to administer oaths and affirmations, take affidavits and statutory declarations, witness and authenticate the execution of certain classes of documents, such as deeds, bills of exchange, powers-of-attorney, and foreign and international business papers.

Pam has nearly 20 years’ experience as a Solicitor and has worked at Thursfields since 2015. She was recommended in the Legal 500 2017 Edition.

She can be emailed at and called on 0121 227 3878 or 0784 1051384.
