Our immigration team

Our team appreciates that immigration law is constantly changing therefore making it challenging to navigate. We provide legal support and advice on a range of personal applications including Indefinite Leave to Remain, British Citizenship, spouse visas and asylum claims.

Our team assists many EEA nationals in their applications for both settled status and naturalisation, and has particular expertise in dealing with complex cases, for instance where individuals may not have detailed evidence of their immigration history, where their personal situation may complicate the application or where there have been previous negative decisions.

Case Studies

Our team advised a foreign national who was in the UK on a Temporary Worker visa and wished to remain with his partner in the UK. An application was submitted on his behalf for an unmarried same sex partner visa, which involved collating extensive supporting documentation evidencing their relationship and proving that they had lived together for the required period. The application was challenging as the client had left the UK following the expiry of his Tier 2 (now Skilled Worker) visa and to apply for his Tier 5 (now Temporary Worker) visa in order to return to the UK. Following the preparation of extensive representations, the visa was granted and he was able to remain in the UK with his partner and continue their relationship.

As a result of Brexit, many EU nationals who have been in the UK for many years now wish to naturalise as British citizens. We have assisted a large number of EU nationals with this process. Assistance has included advising on the requirements of citizenship, collating and ordering large quantities of supporting documentation, completing the application form and making representations to the Home Office. We have particular expertise in providing advice to EU nationals who may not meet all the requirements of citizenship, such as exceeding the amount of absences allowed under the immigration rules. 100% of personal applications have been successful.
