We are a leading specialist law firm which provides fertility and family law services for modern UK families.
Legal 500 ranks us alongside the UK’s top London family law firms, and in 2013 commended our “great empathy” and “second to none” understanding of fertility law and complex international surrogacy. Chambers 2014 ranks Natalie as one of the UK’s leading family lawyers, saying she is “held in high regard by clients and peers for her specialism and expertise in all children matters, particularly her strength in surrogacy, assisted reproduction and same sex parenting”.
The first lawyers in the UK to pioneer fertility law, we have made law through our leading cases on international surrogacy, donor conception, embryo storage and same sex parenting. Our team also provides high quality support with relationship breakdown (including divorce and civil partnership dissolution) and other family and children law disputes. From our offices in the beautiful New Forest, we work with clients from London and all over the world.
We are proud to be known for our embracing, positive and personal values and the difference we make. We have for many years worked to promote the interests of non traditional families (see our campaigning page). We were heavily involved in shaping the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 and have won key legal changes in Parliament, including the right of same sex parents to be named on birth certificates together, changes to the law on embryo storage and British nationality, and most recently maternity leave rights for parents through surrogacy. You will see us quoted regularly in the national media, and on BBC News, Woman’s Hour and the Today Programme, and hear us quoted as leading experts in the Houses of Parliament. We are never afraid to push the boundaries where needed.
In 2013, we also launched Brilliant Beginnings, our sister organisation, which is a professional non-profit making UK surrogacy and egg donation agency, committed to supporting families and campaigning to make things better.
