The introduction of Civil Partnerships has allowed same-sex couples to register their relationship and assume rights and responsibilities to one another akin to those acquired on marriage.
Although similar to marriage, Civil Partnerships are a distinct legal concept, governed by separate legislation. It is a new and dynamic area of law, which requires specialist knowledge. Since their introduction in 2005, Charles Russell Speechlys has advised on a broad range of issues related to Civil Partnerships including pre or post civil partnership agreements, dissolutions, financial and property claims and arrangements for children.
