We are delighted to announce that Natalie Gamble and Louisa Ghevaert of Gamble and Ghevaert LLP have agreed to support the Pride Angel community, giving legal information and online support to our members.
Natalie and Louisa are pioneers of fertility law in the UK and the founding partners of Gamble and Ghevaert LLP, the first and only law firm in the UK to specialise in fertility and parenting law. Gamble and Ghevaert is widely recognised as having the UK’s leading legal expertise on donor conception, co-parenting, surrogacy and fertility treatment, and we are delighted that Natalie and Louisa have agreed to contribute to Pride Angel.
Natalie Gamble, widely known as Britain’s leading fertility lawyer, was a prominent commentator on the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 and a passionate champion of legal rights for same sex parents conceiving together. Her work won her a nomination by Stonewall as their Hero of the Year in 2008, and she has been recently heralded by lesbian magazine Diva as one of the UK’s 50 most powerful gay women.
Louisa Ghevaert is internationally recognised as a leading expert in UK fertility law, including same sex parenting, donor conception, co-parenting and international surrogacy. She is involved in national policymaking, writes for leading journals, and was recently invited to be a leading international speaker at the American Bar Association’s continental conference in Montreal.
“Increasing public knowledge and understanding of fertility and parenting law issues is all part of our passion for our subject” say Natalie and Louisa. “The law can be incredibly complex and fast-moving and it is important for anyone starting a family in more unusual circumstances to get to grips with the legal side of things. We are committed to helping people to become families, and to helping them avoid legal difficulties and complications wherever possible. Making good quality information freely available is all part of that goal.”
Pride Angel has today launched new Fertility Law pages, with up to date information (written by Gamble and Ghevaert LLP) on the law for donor recipients, co-parents and donors, and with links to other useful sources of information.
Natalie and Louisa have also kindly agreed to answer questions posted by Pride Angel members on our online forum, so please do feel free to start posting your legal questions.
