We care about families in all their forms. Problematically for families, the law on parentage does not join up internationally.
The frameworks that regulate legal parentage and assisted conception are complex and the legal recognition of parentage will depend on the specific circumstances. Our specialist team of family lawyers (often acting in conjunction with our immigration and private client teams) has established experience in advising on domestic and international fertility law, surrogacy and parentage matters.
Our experience includes:
- Parentage orders
- Donor conception and parenting arrangements
- Surrogacy (UK and international)
- Use of frozen embryos after divorce, separation or death
- Specialist wills and estate planning
We act for parents, guardians appointed by the court, children and extended family members. We work with a diverse range of families, including many same-sex parents and fertility patients.
Our help extends beyond our legal cases. Members of our specialist team are at the forefront of this cutting edge area of law and, in the field of surrogacy, are appointed experts to a number of international initiatives.
