Commissioner of Oaths

A Commissioner of Oaths is one who is duly authorised and entrusted with the ability to witness the signing and swearing of documents and to verify legal documents and/or affidavits (a written statement confirmed by oath) for use as evidence in court.

Our barristers have these powers but are restricted from using them in proceedings in which they are acting on behalf of any of the parties. Our barristers are available to advise on and draft change of name deed polls, affidavits, statutory declarations, or powers of attorney; and certify copy documentation (including passports) as and when necessary, for individual clients and companies.

Value Adding Approach

Our approach to legal practice is always to articulate creative and value-adding solutions for clients whilst delivering timely, efficient and affordable professional services. All clients conduct their affairs within a legal context and Mercantile Barristers’ role is to advise on the conduct of their transactions and affairs in ways that avoid conflict and disputes.



However, should a dispute become inevitable, then our prior engagement would have assured that all the necessary precautions have been taken and mitigating steps adopted. Thus, clients will begin any dispute resolution in a strong position to achieve their desired objectives.


Whether by adjudication, arbitration, litigation, members at Mercantile Barristers will adopt a firm, swift and decisive approach to achieve the best possible results for clients within the shortest possible time. We recognise that no two cases are the same, so we will adapt our style to suit the occasion.
