Jurisdiction, Abduction & Relocation

‚Äč29 Bedford Row is widely recognised as offering a first-rate service throughout the field of international children law.

Our work is wide-ranging, comprising jurisdictional disputes over children, cases of child abduction (involving Hague and non-Hague countries) and applications for relocation outside the United Kingdom.

Our members have an in-depth knowledge of the 1980 Hague Convention, the 1996 Hague Convention and Brussels IIr, regularly write and lecture on aspects of international children law, and have appeared in some of the most legally important jurisdictional, child abduction and international relocation cases of the last 20 years.
