Surrogacy arrangements, both international and domestic, pose considerable legal, practical and emotional challenges for the intended parent(s). The use of assisted reproduction techniques for family creation can trigger a raft of complex legal consequences, from the procuring, storage and use of gametes (and donor gametes) all the way through to clarifying the legal parentage of the resultant child. And Advances in assisted reproduction technology and evolving societal attitudes have enabled the modern family unit to take a variety of forms. However, the law in this area has failed to keep apace which can result in complex and technical legal disputes regarding the legal status of the child, the parent(s), parental responsibility and contact. We are expertly placed to advise and smoothly navigate these complex processes and we can also draw on our highly regarded in-house specialists in the areas of immigration, tax and succession planning, employment and privacy and reputation departments to complement your family building arrangements.
