Our Immigration Law Team of barristers have a broad range of experience in all areas of immigration law, including asylum, nationality and business immigration.

Within our team we have  barristers who  also sit as immigration judges on a part-time basis and others who were formally employed by the UK Home Office as an Asylum Case Owner and Presenting Officer. Barristers within our team are actively involved in the training of other barristers in immigration law.

We can act for clients via direct public access or in the traditional way through a solicitor. In either case we take a pride in providing expert advice and representation with a competitive fee structure. We often provide 30 or 60 minute fixed fee advice sessions at at short notice. Our barristers and clerks are renowned for their flexible and friendly approach. We can advise you in writing or in conference in our central London chambers, by phone, Skype or FaceTime etc.

 Recent cases include:

 • Acting for the social services department of a London Borough in expedited judicial review proceedings of the UK Border Agency’s refusal to grant a visit visa to the mother of a trafficked child for the purpose of a parenting assessment. The UKBA subsequently reversed its decision and following the mother’s visit to the UK, the County Court sanctioned the return of the child to her home country.

• Drafting grounds for judicial review and representing an Albanian national at an oral permission hearing in the High Court where the UKBA had certified his asylum claim as ‘clearly unfounded’, thereby denying him an in-country right of appeal. The High Court granted permission, following which the UKBA withdrew its certification, thereby allowing an appeal to proceed.
