Deborah Piccos of TV Edwards LLP co-presented a session at the City law firm, Jones Day as part of the P3 Intimate and Interactive series at Jones Day on 8 July 2015. P3 is a support organisation which was set up to provide a network of support for the growing number of LGBT professional parents, working in law, finance and professional services.
The session, aimed at LGBT professionals, was a participative discussion of some of the complexities and options available to lesbian parents keen to start a family and a discussion around how to navigate through them. The focus was on the range of legal issues which might affect the journey to becoming legal parents and the recent changes in the law which have directly affected families. There was also a general discussion on shared ideas and approaches to shared motherhood and alternative family life as well as an opportunity to share experiences throughout, both professionally and socially.
