The immigration team provides advice, representation and advocacy on all aspects of personal immigration, including asylum, human rights, European Union, family, student and nationality applications, as well as in challenges to unlawful detention.
Team members appear regularly in the Immigration and Asylum Chamber of the First-Tier Tribunal and Upper Tribunal, as well as in the Special Immigration Appeals Commission, the Administrative Court, the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court. We also work regularly in the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the European Union. Team members have been involved in many of the leading European and domestic cases in immigration and asylum law.
Our emphasis is on quality, accessibility and value for money.
Team members are specialists in a wide range of related areas of law, such as crime, social security, housing, mental health, employment, education, children, extradition and prisoners.
The team includes several contributing editors to Butterworths Immigration Law Service; a contributing editor to Immigration Law and Practice; the authors of the Best Practice Guide to Asylum & Human Rights Appeals and the electronic update of the JCWI Immigration, Nationality & Refugee Law Handbook; three of the authors of the LAG book on Foreign National Prisoners; and the lead author of the current edition of Sharpe on Habeas Corpus. Members sit on the executive of the Immigration Law Practitioners' Association and regularly hold seminars with solicitors and others on immigration and related areas.
Several members of the team are able to accept instructions directly from members of the public in appropriate cases, without the need for a solicitor, and more information can be found on our public access page.
We have a team of practice managers who are extremely experienced in managing the full range of immigration cases. They understand the needs of immigration lawyers and clients for a prompt and efficient service. Please contact Sian Wilkins or Rachel Finch to find out more.
