Natalie is known internationally, not only as the UK’s leading fertility lawyer but also for her gentle tenacity which has enabled much needed change in the UK legal system. Having built her own donor-conceived family in 2001, Natalie was the first solicitor to pioneer fertility law in the UK.
Natalie has been named in the Independent on Sunday’s Pink List as one of the UK’s 100 most influential gay people, named as the Times Lawyer of the Week, and nominated for Stonewall’s Hero of the Year Award for her defence of same-sex parents. She is listed by Legal 500 in their elite list of lawyers who are leaders in their field and ranked as a Band 1 leading lawyer by Chambers. She was also one of the first international fellows to be admitted to the US-based Academy of Adoption and Assisted Reproduction Attorneys, and she is the Chair of the UK and Ireland LGBT Family Law Institute.
