BTO’s Fertility Law Experts Launch Free Advice Service

15 June 2021

BTO is delighted to announce the launch of its free Fertility Law Advice Service for couples and individuals who are embarking on their fertility treatment journey.

The advice service is designed to answer initial questions potential parents may have regarding the fertility treatment process and navigating the route to legal parenthood. Free signposting and generic information about fertility law will be provided by lawyers who have a genuine understanding of fertility law and the complicated landscape in which it operates.

Lesley Gordon, Head of BTO’s Family Law team, said:

“When you first embark on the journey to becoming a parent, getting advice about the legal position may not be your top priority. However, arming yourself early on with knowledge of your rights and the options available to you can demystify and streamline the whole process. This means you can focus on the most important part – becoming a parent.

“Our free email advice service has been created to address this need, and to help couples and individuals start off the fertility process on the right foot, armed with the information they need to make the decisions which are right for them and their new family.

“We are here to ensure that everyone, no matter what their family makeup, is armed with knowledge of their rights when becoming parents. Our team has experience in representing and supporting all types of modern families, including those created with the help of surrogacy arrangements, assisted or donor conception, adoption and LGBTQ+ couples. We regularly represent clients in international and cross border issues too.”

For those wishing to take advantage of this free service, all initial enquiries can be submitted via email to a dedicated inbox ( or you can use BTO’s online form at  The Fertility Law team’s specialist solicitors guarantee a response within 7 days or less.

For individuals and couples with urgent enquiries and/or requiring formal advice regarding their specific circumstances, the Fertility Law team is offering a no-obligation initial Fertility Fixed Fee appointment (currently held remotely).
