Of course I think I’m good at what I do. I would say that wouldn’t I? For my clients’ views though see below:
L Johnson – Evesham – May 2017
Robert was fantastic throughout the process of acquiring notorization and apostilles for my working visa. He helped me every step of the way with clear instructions and professional advice. The whole process was efficient and pain-free, and I would highly recommend Robert’s services.
C Parker – Wolverhampton- Sept 2016
Robert helped us out on quite a complicated and urgent matter involving a property in Spain when another notary was unable to assist. Robert took responsibility for the problem by liaising with our Spanish lawyers and preparing a suitable certificate with them to enable us to achieve the required result. Despite the matter being further complicated by the fact my co-signatory was in a different part of the country, Robert agreed to meet us midway one evening and took the time to go over the paperwork with us so we knew exactly what to expect.
Jeff Matthews, Secretary, Friends of Feckenham Church – Sept 2016.
“Robert’s work in helping us establish a Charitable Trust was exemplary. Prompt, considered and concise we were successful first time in our application. I can thoroughly recommend him in his professional capacity.”
Helen Phelan – Redditch – Sept 2016
“Robert very patiently and professionally helped my sister and I through some quite complicated legal papers needed urgently and which might otherwise have required us to make a long distance trip away. Robert made himself available to visit us in person at short notice and came up with a creative solution with our other lawyers to resolve the problem”
Chris Wong – Trustee – NW7 Hub – Sept 2016
“We met with Robert at a seminar he was giving with a colleague at the Ethical Property Foundation. Following a discussion with Robert after the event he agreed to help us finalise a complicated set of heads of terms for a development project our charity is engaged in with the local authority. Robert’s advice on what to cover in these heads of terms, and how to phrase the individual elements, has been invaluable in helping us to present them in a professional way to our prospective landlord and to potential funders in a way to demonstrate to them that we are engaging in the project on a serious basis. With his expert advice and guidance our project has made significant progress.”
Doug Clark – Chaddesley Corbett, Worcs – August 2016
Robert was extremely helpful to me in coming out to my home on very short notice. I had been sent some really complicated paperwork very late in the day to do with a house sale abroad but Robert patiently took me through everything that was required. I would be very happy to recommend his services to anyone else requiring that. A really professional and friendly person.
Julie C – Redditch – August 2016
I was given Robert’s contact number by a local solicitor firm as I was looking for a notary service. It was good to learn that Robert was local to me, and once I spoke to him on the telephone I felt reassured that he ‘knew his craft’. Robert was informative, professional, friendly and helpful. Each time I made contact with Robert he responded without delay and ready to help with the next step. His instruction was clear and honest. Robert’s knowledge and experience of the process meant that all happened without delay. I also got to learn of the amazing history of a notary – something that Robert is clearly proud to be part of.
Mariana, Ukraine, July 2016
I can characterise Robert Sprake as highly professional and very experienced notary public who certainly goes an extra mile to deliver the very best outcome for his client. I contacted Robert for legalisation of my English documents and I received an extremely efficient and high quality cross border service to Ukraine. When I referred to Robert with my query he promptly responded with a very detailed and helpful answer. At first the legalisation process appeared complicated and time consuming but Robert made it very efficient for me and I am absolutely grateful to Robert for his excellent work! I would strongly recommend Robert to anyone who seeks for professional advise/notary services to be performed exceptionally well.
Adele and Gareth George, Bromsgrove, Worcs, – May 2015
Many thanks for your friendly and efficient service. We had expected the process to be much more complicated but you have dealt with everything with ease and took all the worry out of things. We have already recommended you to friends and would not hesitate to use you again in the future if the need arises.

Mr Aston – Redditch – May 2015

Mrs S E – Astwood Bank – April 2015
I just wanted to say thank you for your help with notorising our documents. Your service was extremely efficient and friendly and I would highly recommend you. I will definitely be using you again in the future should the need arise. Thank you for coming round the same day as I called you, I really appreciate it as it was a new process to me I hadn’t fully understood what was involved. Considering how long these things can take I am amazed how quickly you completed the process. The documents are now safely where they need to be and all is well!
Mr R Vincent – Dorchester – April 2015
My sister and I have used Robert’s services over the last three years to deal with all the legal aspects associated with planning, an option agreement and finally culminating in the successful sale of a building site to a property developer.
In every communication with us he was always very clear and precise in his reasons for dealing with issues in a particular way. This made us feel secure and safe in an area of business we did not have a great deal of knowledge.
Following this three year experience we would have no hesitation in recommending Robert as a person and also the services he has to offer.

Mr and Mrs D – Bromsgrove – March 2015

He then arranged and delivered the competed documents to us very quickly

Co-Founder, Madam and Non Executive Director at Acknowledgement Ltd
Rob is a fine bloke. A former colleague when we were both lawyers at Wragge & Co (and he had more hair), I have since sought his help on a number of commercial property matters over a period of more than ten years as a client; he is very commercial and gives sound advice. You know, actual advice, rather than long lists of things that you really ought to consider without ever actually helping you work out what you are doing or signing. Very happy to recommend him!
