    the notary public certifies that he had before him the partnership contract / the company contract (depende del contexto)


    Latin Spanish, English
    I agree with the Notary Public had at sight... that's what I use in legal terminology..
    The Notary Public had at his sight is like repeating (he) again.
    Correct me if I'm wrong please

    Just wanted to add to this thread to say that "had at sight" or "had at his sight" is not idiomatic English. I would go with posts #5 or #3 ("had before him", "saw", "viewed", or just say "that the notary public examined" the contract.

    Thanks all
