Freemans are pleased to announce that we have been voted 'Adoption Law Firm of the Year' by Lawyer's Monthly magazine

We are particularly proud to be recognised for this as it follows a year where the department has been going from strength to strength, as a result of Hilka Hollmann joining our team, which she did in 2016.

Our adoption team organised, with Garden Court Chambers, a hugely successful one day conference on adoption and surrogacy where a well -regarded panel of experts from the world of academia, lawyers (including our very own Hilka Hollmann) and judges spoke on the complex issues involved in these cases when there is an international element. We also represented the successful applicant in the complex case of Re W, which concerned an application for the recognition of a foreign adoption order under English law. We are regularly instructed on adoption and surrogacy cases and are committed to, and known for, providing pragmatic legal advice. As a team we are able to draw on our expertise in international children law, often with an Immigration interface. Freemans has a highly regarded Immigration department with whom we enjoy collaborating.

The Lawyer Monthly Legal Awards 2017 recognises the achievements of law firms, lawyers, barristers and those connected to the legal world who have a proven track record in delivering results for their clients over the past twelve months.

Please contact Nina Hansen or Hilka Hollmann if we can assist with your adoption matter or other aspect of children’s law.
