Our service as notaries in Cologne

In our notary’s office in Cologne we offer you notarizations, certifications, other services in all areas relevant to notarial law as well as expert advice. In contrast to a lawyer, a notary must guarantee the impartial performance of his office. This means that we as notaries provide you with unbiased and neutral advice. Notaries are independent holders of a public office; they carry out certain tasks in the area of the so-called preventive administration of justice. Our task is to shape legal relationships and to safeguard the interests of all parties with the necessary neutrality.

Private individuals as well as companies, corporations or public authorities are welcome at our notary’s office in Cologne. If you wish, and if there is a factual reason, the notaries will also take care of out-of-town appointments. Simply contact us if you would like to make an appointment in Cologne.

We look forward to welcoming you as a client.

Priority power of attorney & living will

Even in the event of an accident or an unforeseeable illness, there are legal questions to be clarified. Who can make decisions on my behalf in the event of legal incapacity? Who decides what medical treatment I receive? Your notary public in Cologne will assist you on request with the preparation of a power of attorney and a living will.

Family law

Nobody wants a divorce; nevertheless many marriages get divorced. A precautionary notarial marriage contract creates legal and planning security; an agreement on the consequences of divorce can avoid a proliferating and expensive dispute. Among other things, the matrimonial property regime, pension rights and post-marital maintenance are to be regulated.

We will assist you in all areas of company law where the law provides for the involvement of a notary.
