Coles Miller family law solicitor Richard Perrins is attracting clients from across the UK because of his specialist knowledge of fertility law, surrogacy law and civil partnership dissolution.
Clients from London and Brighton are contacting Mr Perrins for legal advice because of his experience in these specialist areas of the law.
Dorset law firm Coles Miller has a long history of handling personal injury, clinical negligence, residential leasehold and debt recovery work from all over the country.
But traditionally most of its family law work has been in Dorset. Now that is starting to change as the firm’s reputation continues to grow.
Mr Perrins said: “At the moment surrogacy and fertility are still considered niche areas of the law so there are very few solicitors with extensive experience of these fields.”
He has been handling surrogacy and fertility disputes for at least three years. One case involving a gay father being awarded custody of his 15-month-old daughter later hit national headlines.
Mr Perrins is seeing increasing numbers of enquiries about civil partnership dissolution and expects this trend to continue – along with enquiries for same sex divorce.
Same sex marriage became law on March 29 2014. Like mixed sex couples, same sex couples can file for divorce a year after they marry.
For further information about fertility law, surrogacy law, same sex divorce or civil partnership dissolution, please contact family law solicitor Richard Perrins, 01202 355698.
