Founder & Managing Director

Emerson De Queiroz Barbosa
Emerson De Queiroz Barbosa

With Italian and Brazilian heritage and proficiency in Portuguese, Italian and English languages, Emerson’s passion for law traces back to his 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 in a multilingual department, he was fortunate to receive inspiring support from his peers, which catalysed his decision to pursue a career in law.

After an intensive period of LLB studies in Brazil and the UK, and gaining valuable experience in corporate law at a leading law firm in Belo Horizonte (Brazil), Emerson was presented with an exciting opportunity to return to London to work as Legalisation Coordinator and Notary Assistant at a prominent notarial practice in Westminster (London).

After years of experience in notarial firms in London, he left his last employment in 2016 to devote considerable effort to establishing Westminster Legalisation Services LTD. This endeavour and linguistics proficiency has allowed our founder and managing director to leverage his extensive knowledge and skills to deliver outstanding legal services in the fields of Italian citizenship law, Apostille legalisation, consular legalisation, notarisation and solicitor certification of documents and certified translation for jurisdictions worldwide.

He leads a company that stands at the forefront of legalisation services in UK, with a qualified multilingual team of UK and foreign lawyers committed to excellence and driven by a dedication to WLS clients’ needs.​
