Legal advice on surrogacy based on the law in England.
I will not recommend any surrogacy provider, destination, agency or clinic. If my advice concludes that you can become legal parents following the arrangement, it should not be considered as advice to proceed. If I have acted for couples who have entered into similar arrangements, you should not take that as advice to proceed.
I will not take part in any negotiations for your surrogacy arrangement nor, will I review your surrogacy contracts.
