We support alternative and non-confrontational methods of dispute resolution, including mediation and round the table meetings. Where necessary, however, we will take court proceedings, including emergency action.
Our specialism in children related issues forms a key part of our international practice, alongside our expertise on international relocation of children as well as international child abduction, international adoption and international surrogacy.
Hughes Fowler Carruthers has advised a significant number of same sex parents, and the firm as a whole is highly knowledgeable in this area, including surrogacy.
The lawyers at Hughes Fowler Carruthers always act in a way which recognises the emotional complexity of children’s matters. Above all, we believe that the welfare of any children who are the subject of legal proceedings is of paramount importance.
