15th edition of Brooke’s Notary

The 15th edition of Brooke’s Notary, the widely used manual of notarial practice and described as “one of the classic textbooks of the law of England and Wales”, has recently been published by Sweet & Maxwell. The first edition of Brooke’s Notary appeared in 1839.

Nigel Ready, former senior partner of Cheeswrights and currently a consultant to the firm, is the author of this latest edition of Brooke and its five predecessors. Nigel has also written supplements of the work for Hong Kong. The new edition considers the changes to notarial practice brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, in particular the growing use of electronic signatures and remote online notarisation. The effects of Brexit on notarial law and practice are also taken into account.
