Therefore, any transactions or issues need time for finding the most suitable solution in order to swiftly and appropriately implement them. After all the Latin meaning of “notarius” is “rapid recorder”! Discretion, dependability and impartiality for the utmost care and tailor-made as well as customized constructions of contracts are a basic “conditio sine qua non” of our chancellary.
