Surrogacy Team

Annette Hickey

Annette is head of the Surrogacy & Fertility Law team at Poe Kiely Hogan Lanigan and is noted as one of Ireland's leading surrogacy lawyers. With over 20 years' legal experience, she has the knowledge and expertise to assist her clients as they plan their journey towards parenthood.

It is Annette's belief that everyone should have the opportunity to become parents should they wish to do so and she liaises with numerous interest groups to lobby Government on amending legislation to make Surrogacy an easier option for intending parents in Ireland. She is also a regular speaker at conferences, writes articles and contributes to both Radio & TV in addition to her work advising Irish couples the length and breadth of Ireland.

Owing to the sensitive nature of surrogacy, Annette and her team are well known for their compassion and empathy as they strive to help their clients gain as much information as possible to make informed decisions about their future families and receive the correct legal recognition as parents at the end of the process.

Annette and her team also have an excellent network of contacts across the world who they regularly liaise with on behalf of clients in countries such as in Canada, USA, Ukraine and Greece.

Outside of work Annette is married, with four children and lives on a busy farm.
