We have of-counsel arrangements in every state where surrogacy is legal, and even provide counsel for international clients. We have the experience and knowledge to walk clients through the process specific to their state’s laws as well as their specific family makeup. We also work with clinics and agencies nationwide, serving as valuable partners and providing up-to-date guidance on the frequently shifting regulatory framework of the surrogacy process.

What Is Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Law?

Assisted Reproductive Technology is the use of modern medical devices and techniques to assist the intended parents with conceiving a child. Popular methods include:

  • In vitro fertilization-embryo transfer (IVF – ET)
  • Gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT)
  • Zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT)
  • Frozen embryo transfer (FET)

Each of these methods may be viable in your situation, so it is best to seek medical guidance on which is the most well suited for your goals. Our team can help you as you are investigating your options by providing counsel based on our experience with these methods and the implications of each.
