Mogers Drewett launches specialist surrogacy, fertility & adoption legal service

The family team at West Country law firm Mogers Drewett, has introduced a new surrogacy, fertility and adoption legal service in response to the growing need for specialist legal advice.   The new service will be delivered by Anne-Marie Hamer who joined the family team in February as a family lawyer and specialises in surrogacy and fertility law.

Rebecca Silcock, Partner and Head of the Family Team at Mogers Drewett explains “As surrogacy becomes a more mainstream pathway to parenthood we have gradually increased enquires from people who are looking for advice on the legal planning associated with surrogacy arrangements such as acquiring parental rights and bringing children who are born abroad back into the UK. Fertility treatment and embryo storage is also a very complex area of law and can be emotionally challenging but one we can provide sensitive and supportive advice on.

“Whether you are considering donor, co-parenting, surrogacy, fertility or adoption what is vitally important is to ensure in the early planning stages is that you fully understand your parental rights, implications of your actions and that you have robust parental agreements in place.”

Under the new service Mogers Drewett will be able to assist with; surrogacy legal planning including international surrogacy, parental orders, pre-conception agreements, donor co-parenting agreements, donor disputes, embryo storage and ownership disputes as well as adoption.
