The UK’s leading fertility lawyers
The UK’s first law firm to specialise in creating families, we have unrivalled experience and a long history of making change
What matters to us
We give our clients exceptional support because we believe, fundamentally, that children thrive with love no matter what their family’s structure or how it was made.
Our mission is to create loving families with legal security, and if legal solutions don’t yet exist to create them.

Making a difference
We push boundaries both through our legal cases and the wider work we do.
We have been behind many of the positive legal steps forward for LGBT+ families and families created through assisted reproduction over the past 15 years.
And in times of crisis, we have been there to support our community.
Our leading cases
We have managed nearly all the UK cases which have set legal precedents on surrogacy, sperm donation, LGBT+ parenting, posthumous conception and embryo storage.
We have helped make outdated legal principles work for the modern world, and have created easier paths for other families to follow.
In the news
The media regularly calls us as experts on surrogacy, LGBT+ families and fertility law, or because one of cases or campaigning work has hit the headlines.
Our directors Natalie and Helen are frequent voices on Radio 4 Today and Woman’s Hour, and in the national press and on TV news.
What our clients say to us…
We really appreciate the seamless support we’ve received. I work with a lot of lawyers and other professional services organisations for one reason or another and I have to say this was up there as the best experience yet.
It’s been a pleasure to work with all of you. If only everyone in the journey had been as kind and organised as all of you at Brilliant Beginnings and NGA! We’re so grateful for all of your help and guidance. I’m sure we’ll be in touch in the future when we embark on surrogacy journey number two.
I can’t begin to tell you how grateful we are. To us, you and your team are like the super heroes who swooped in and saved the day. At a time when our world seemed to be falling apart, you stepped in and gave us hope, reassurance and facilitated a path to bring our babies back home safely [from Ukraine]. You are forever a part of our little girl’s story.
We would like to thank you immensely for your support and guidance through this process. The Court process was interesting and lovely. We felt very moved by it. You’ve both been super helpful , encouraging and made the process so much easier. Thank you ever so much, we are so grateful.
Our sibling organisation, Brilliant Beginnings
NGA Law directors Natalie and Helen established Brilliant Beginnings in 2013. A non-profit surrogacy agency, it was the first UK surrogacy organisation to provide a fully-managed surrogacy pathway.
Brilliant Beginnings is committed to supporting safe ethical surrogacy in the UK and overseas, and to campaigning for surrogacy law reform.
