Louisa Ghevaert Associates

I am delighted to announce the launch of Louisa Ghevaert Associates, providing specialist fertility and family law services for modern families.

Changing social attitudes and the rapid uptake of digital on-demand services has lead to growing numbers of modern and diverse families encompassing: assisted reproduction and fertility treatment, sperm and egg donation, co-parenting, known donation, posthumous conception, surrogacy, adoption and family restructure following relationship breakdown.

Fertility and modern family law continues to be out-paced by science, medicine and people’s expectations and wishes. Law and policy is complex and it can create unintended legal issues and problems. This can leave parents, children, surrogates, donors and families without legal security or peace of mind. 

The launch of Louisa Ghevaert Associates will help meet the growing need for specialist legal services in the UK. It provides expert fertility and family law advice and solutions for those creating a family and seeking to place family life on a firm legal basis.
