We are proud to help LGBTIQ clients both when they want to become parents, but also if their relationships end. We believe that everyone is entitled to equal treatment under the law, and that everyone is entitled to be treated with dignity under the law. To this end, both Stephen Page and Karen Gough have made submissions to various government inquiries to ensure that the law treats LGBTIQ people equally.
Our partner Stephen Page is out and proud. Stephen has previously been named LGBTIQ Activist of the Year, and on behalf of a previous firm accepted a Queensland Law Society Equity and Diversity Award.
