    Parentage, Fertility & Surrogacy Legal Services

Families are formed in many different ways. Problematically 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 tax, trust & succession teams) has extensive experience and can advise you 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

Whether you’re a parent, guardian appointed by the court, child or an extended family member, we will work alongside you to ensure your needs are met. We work with a diverse range of families, including many same-sex parents and fertility patients.

We can help you beyond your 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.
