Bishop & Sewell

At Bishop & Sewell LLP, our specialist Forming Families team are passionate and committed to offering advice and support to intended parents during their surrogacy journey. Our team comprises of Louise Barretto, a partner in our Family team, Victoria Maxwell, a solicitor in our Family team and Karma Hickman, an associate solicitor in our Immigration team.

On the weekend of 3 – 4 November 2018, the team exhibited at the Fertility Show at Kensington Olympia. We had previously exhibited at the 2016 Fertility Show together, before our firm Fisher Meredith merged with Bishop & Sewell, so we had an idea of what to expect.

The show had 3,175 visitors over the weekend which was a great turn out. We were on hand to give advice about the issues surrounding Fertility Law to anyone who attended our stand. It was also great to make connections again with many different agencies, clinics, support charities and individuals from all over the world who are also committed to assisting couples in achieving their dreams of forming a family.

Due to popular demand from our 2016 attendance, we also gave away some cuddly Bishop & Sewell teddies and rubber ducks to those who wanted them! As expected we came back almost empty handed aside from “Benji Bishop” the latest addition to Bishop & Sewell’s Forming Families team (see below) who is now keeping Victoria company at her computer.


If you are thinking of entering into a surrogacy arrangement and require advice about the process or need to obtain a Parental Order please contact Louise or Victoria from our expert Family & Divorce team who will be able to assist you. Alternatively, please email or call 020 7631 4141.
