performance of notarial service for others in the Insured’s capacity as a duly commissioned and sworn Notary Public.

(a) Upon knowledge of any occurrence which may reasonably be expected to result in a claim or suit, written notice containing particulars sufficient to identify the Insured and also reasonably obtainable information with respect to the time, place and circumstances thereof, and the names and addresses of the potential claimant and of available witnesses, shall be given by or for the Insured to the Company or any of its authorized agents as soon as practicable, but in no event longer than forty-five (45) days after discovery.
