I have been practising as a solicitor in London and Buckinghamshire for nearly 20 years.
Between 2013 and 2015 I undertook a two-year course at University College London to qualify as a Notary and received a Postgraduate Diploma in Notarial Practice.
My Notary practice, in relation to which I trade as ‘Sarah McLoughlin Notary Public’, is based at the offices of Parrott & Coales LLP in Aylesbury but there is no connection between Parrott & Coales LLP and my notarial business.
I am entitled to practise as a Notary Public as a result of a faculty to do so granted by the Archbishop of Canterbury (www.facultyoffice.org.uk). It is one of the few qualifications written, entirely by hand, on vellum by a scrivener.
I am also a member of The Notaries’ Society of England and Wales.

My practice as a notary is a successor to the practice of James Couzens who has recently retired both from his notarial practice and as a solicitor and partner at Parrott & Coales LLP.
