Ben is an Australian qualified lawyer. For more than 15 years, Ben has work practicing exclusively in all aspects of Family Law, having been a partner of the preeminent Family Law firm, TJ Mulvany & Co before being one of Sayer Jones’ founders.

During his career Ben has readily established himself as one of Australia’s primary foundation voices on all aspects of domestic and international surrogacy, reproduction and adoption law. He has held audiences at the invitation of the Victorian Central Authority for assisted reproduction; is actively involved in focus groups with assisted reproductive treatment providers; and has the privilege of regular participation in consumer-based conferences conducted by leading surrogacy support organisations. Ben has created policy frameworks for surrogacy related services and has ensured that Sayer Jones is at the forefront of this vitally important area of practice by assisting intended parents and surrogates alike in a holistic and guided fashion.

By extension, Ben maintains a complete and comprehensive practice on parenting and property matters, including those of high conflict.

He has acted on matters including medical procedures; international and local child relocation matters; international child abduction; step-parent and adult adoptions; and cases involving high risk to children. He regularly assists parties in complex and challenging circumstances to obtain orders for parental responsibility.

Ben’s unrelenting but balanced and resolution focused approach has him become one of the most reputable voices in all aspects of parental and reproductive law in Australia.
