Stephen takes on top role at Notaries Society

An executive director at Banner Jones Solicitors has been appointed as President of The Notaries Society, the representative society for the 775 Notaries practising in England and Wales. Stephen Gordon, who heads up the business legal

services team at the Chesterfield-based law firm, recently took on the prestigious role, having been the society’s Vice President since 2017. Founded in 1882, the society plays a major part in

the lives of Notaries, offering training, continuing professional development as well as international representation. Notaries represent the oldest and smallest branch of

the legal profession in England and Wales, so the work of the society is crucial in ensuring their interests are best represented. Stephen, who has been a qualified Notary Public

dealing with international matters for both private and commercial clients for over 25 years, is now the only remaining Notary Public in Chesterfield. He said: “I’m extremely proud to have been

appointed as President of the Society and am delighted to further my involvement in supporting the work of fellow Notary Publics across England and Wales. “I would also like to take this opportunity to

welcome on board our newly-qualified Notary, Matthew Maiden. “Matthew, who heads up the commercial team in our

Mansfield office, has recently been awarded the Notary qualification by the Archbishop of Canterbury.”

Stephen Gordan and Matthew Maiden Matthew will now be able to be involved in cases

that will require documents and certifications to be sent overseas, a service a regular solicitor is unable to provide. He said: “I’m extremely proud to have been

recognised as a Notary and to become a member of The Notaries Society. This will allow me to build on the fantastic work Stephen has been doing for Banner Jones as a Notary and help expand our offering to our clients in Nottinghamshire.”
