Legal Advice

We believe that providing expert-sourced information on legal matters related to assisted reproduction is of fundamental importance for our patients in certain circumstances. The regulatory aspects of fertility treatment provision, ethical dilemmas, human rights matters and the challenges of cross-border treatment can all require addressing from a legal aspect.

Our partnership with the specialist life sciences team at Dubai-based BSA Ahmad Bin Hezeem & Associates LLP gives you access to the specialist knowledge that will help you to make fully informed and legally compliant decisions about your fertility treatment.
