Emerson De Queiroz Barbosa
As the Founder and Managing Director of the company, it is my pleasure to share my journey with you.
My academic journey began in Turin, Italy, where I completed my high school education in 2007 and in the same year, I relocated to London, a city that has since become my cherished home. The vibrancy and diversity of London have played a pivotal role in shaping my professional and academic practices. My linguistic proficiency encompasses Portuguese, Italian and English, reflecting a rich cultural heritage background and a strong international perspective.
The genesis of my passion for law traces back to my first work placement at a renowned notary firm in The City of London. Starting as an Office Messenger and rising to the position of Notary Assistant and Legalisation Services Coordinator, I was fortunate to receive inspiring support from my peers, which catalysed my decision to pursue a career in law.
After an intensive period of legal studies in Brazil and the UK, and gaining valuable experience at two leading law firms in Belo Horizonte (Brazil) and in London, I was presented with an exciting opportunity to return to London in 2014. I began my role as a Logistics Management and Notary Assistant at a prominent notary firm in Westminster (London).
In 2015, I undertook the professional course in English Law and Practice with CILEX Law School. By 2017, I had devoted considerable effort to establishing Westminster Legalisation Services LTD. This endeavour and linguistics proficiency has allowed me to leverage my extensive knowledge and skills to deliver outstanding legal services in the fields of certification of documents, certified translation, Apostille legalisation and consular legalisation.
I am proud to lead a company that stands at the forefront of legalisation services, committed to excellence and driven by a dedication to our clients’ needs.
