Surrogacy and Modern Families is a developing and growing area of law. At Harcourt we have several members of Chambers who are able to provide advice, representation and training in this specialised field.
Our barristers have extensive experience of both international and domestic surrogacy law and the implications of the same. As a result, we are able to offer a breadth of knowledge to each case we undertake.
Members of Chambers have appeared in applications for parental orders following international surrogacy arrangements raising complicated domicile issues and seeking authorisation of significant financial sums beyond reasonable expenses.
We have significant academic expertise in surrogacy law which our barristers are able to draw upon, with Victoria Flowers having co-authored a book ‘Surrogacy: Law, Practice and Policy in England and Wales’, and Mavis Amonoo-Acquah co-drafting the Bar Council’s response to the Law Commission’s consultation paper, and publishing articles on Surrogacy Law reform.
