From the Business
NOMOS Law Firm was established in 1995 in Thessaloniki, Greece. Our team comprises of seven experienced lawyers. Our Fertily Law Group comprises of two lawyers with wide experience in the field and was established three years ago. The Group speaks fluently English, German, French and Spanish. These last years we have assisted couples from all over the world to become parents via ART.
Greece is one of the few jurisdictions which enforces surrogacy contracts and has adopted a progressive and tolerant legal framework on the regulation of surrogate motherhood. Specifically, Greece has introduced a complete and comprehensive regulatory framework for medically assisted human reproduction, with provisions for altruistic gestational surrogacy since 2002. Greece's legal framework has been described as one of the most progressive regimes in the modern legal world. The Greek legal framework together with our expertise guarantees a smooth and frictionless ART process.
