"Covering areas of Immigration and Nationality Law"


We are usually engaged to find solutions to difficult situations, for example:

  • Where applications to the Home Office have been refused;
  • Where an immigration position needs to be regularised and made legal;
  • Where unusual applications need to be made.

Our task is to achieve security for those whose future is otherwise uncertain, and to navigate carefully where danger can be avoided.

We act for clients from every continent and culture. They look for sensitivity and effectiveness. Our business has been built up from our reputation with previous clients, not on our advertising.

We give a high quality service, keeping our clients informed of the work that is done for them and the cost incurred. We do not work on Legal Aid.


Our Asylum work starts with the personal background of the individual who consults us. Frequently a political past has to be analysed before a substantive Home Office interview can take place.

We have challenged and defeated the government in cases where they have used powers to stop Asylum claims by means of “certification” – for instance Article 1F of the Geneva Convention.

Family applications

Marriages: – in-country and Entry Clearance applications.

Elderly Dependant Relatives: – including those under the age of 65.

Family re-unification: – applications from under 18-year olds.


We make many applications to establish British Nationality by registration for British Overseas Citizens. Family histories need to be analysed and applied to the historical developments of British Nationality Law.


We act for many people whose immigration status has expired, where Human Rights Law has to be used. Some have made innocent slips, some get stranded by circumstances that are out of their control; others have long histories where roots in this country are put down over several years.
