Same-sex couple, known donation case, January 2018

"We chose Louisa because she is the preeminent expert and leader in this field.  Upon speaking with her, it was immediately clear that she has studied and been involved with every nuanced development in this area.  She patiently walked us through every detail, and she personally tailored her advice to help us plan for the legal issues we would face as a same-sex, international couple planning for children delivered through egg donation and surrogacy.  Not only was she an expert, she was kind.  We are extremely impressed with her and would recommend her to anyone needing to be reassured and guided through this process."

“Louisa Ghevaert was exceptional in terms of providing cutting edge and the most up to date legal advice.  She was proactive in helping us to plan ahead and to consider options to hurdles that she envisaged we might encounter.  This helped us enormously in terms of deciding and finalising on strategy and in ensuring that our case was dealt with quickly, smoothly and as efficiently as possible by the court.  We felt reassured at every angle that Louisa was totally committed to our case and that with her support, our joint determination and hard work would achieve a good result.  From the very start of the contract to the end, Louisa was an extremely professional lawyer and was also very kind, caring and understanding of our personal circumstances and the emotional trauma that we were experiencing.  This was much appreciated and helped us to deal with the stress of the case. We have a great deal of respect for Louisa Ghevaert as a lawyer and we hold her in very high esteem”.

A & A, international surrogacy, intended parents April 2012 

“I want to say how much I appreciate all your help and understanding.  Your reassuring manner and patient and extremely sensitive approach has made a big difference to this whole enterprise”.

Miss B, April 2012 

“We received an excellent service from Louisa Ghevaert.  Louisa provided us with a highly efficient and accessible legal service.  We were able to contact Louisa virtually 24/7 by email, telephone and letter, her response time had a very quick turnaround, we were never kept waiting for a reply to a query nor once did we have to chase up a reply.  Her detailed legal knowledge, specialist expertise and broad range of skills on surrogacy, fertility, family law and immigration matters were paramount in helping us to achieve a positive end result.  The legal process we had to endure was technically daunting but Louisa spent a lot of time to explain it to us in a very clear and easy to understand way.  She also helped to navigate and steer us through a very difficult, complex and sensitive court case.  Finally, her charges for the service we received were fair and represented good value for money”.
