Emerson De Queiroz Barbosa
I am the company’s Founder and Managing Director. Brazilian born with Italian heritage, I moved to Turin (Italy) in 2002 to complete my studies and in 2007 I came to London to study English and was adopted by this lovely country where I have been living since then.
I have discovered my passion for Law when started working as an office messenger in a firm of notaries in the City of London, where I also was encouraged by my colleagues to find a suitable Law School to start my legal career and decided to return to Brazil to do my Law degree in my mother tongue (Portuguese).
In 2014, after a period os studies and internships in Brazil, between Law School and working in a large and prestigious Law firm, gaining knowledge and work experience in corporate law, I had an offer to move back to London and started working as a Logistics Management and Notary Assistant in a firm of notaries in central London.
In 2015, I started the professional course in English Law and Practice with CILEX Law School and in 2017, following a successful period dedicating full time to my own legalisation business, I have incorporated Westminster Legalisation Services LTD, in which enabled me to apply all my knowledge and expertise in notarial practice, Apostille and consular legalisation services.
