LGBT+ and same-sex couples

Our specialist team is widely respected for its work in the field of same-sex partnerships our dedicated LGBT Division specifically focuses on issues faced by the LGBT community

At Giambrone  Gay Lawyers, we have been serving the legal needs of gay and lesbian clients for over ten years, offering a wide range of services tailored to the specific needs of the gay and lesbian clients. Our lawyers in the Gay Lawyers division are mainly derived from the LGBT community and routinely represent gay men and lesbians across the UK as well as those from all over the world, advising couples, individuals and employers on the legal issues connected with the rights related to the LGBT community.

Why do I need a Gay Lawyer?

You may be wondering why, if you are a gay man or lesbian, would you particularly need to be advised by a gay lawyer?  Giambrone has found that as many of the legal issues that relate most particularly to the LGBT world, discrimination, for example, are sensitive and often involve having to recount the homophobic language used towards our clients,  We have found that our clients feel far more at ease relating their experiences to an empathetic lawyer who can truly understand their position.  This principle applies to other areas that require careful handling.

The practical advice our lawyers in the LGBT team can offer often highlights areas that may previously have been overlooked, for example, inheritance can be a difficult area and Gay Lawyers can ensure that, if it is your wish, your estate is bequeathed to your partner and on your death will pass without any problems to your partner. Our lawyers have prepared wills and powers of attorney for numerous gay clients who have been delighted with the understanding and practical approach our team shows when dealing with such matters.

Following the breakdown of your relationship with your gay partner can be a very challenging time. As our lawyers not only understand the legal issues you face but also are in tune with your lifestyle as a gay man or lesbian, we can ensure that you receive the best advice for your situation

In these situations, using a gay lawyer can give you the extra confidence that your particular needs will be looked after expertly and with a clear understanding of your situation a and lifestyle choices.
