We have a long history of association with the fields of Nationality, Immigration and Asylum work. Current members of Chambers hold judicial appointments in the Immigration Appellate Authority and the Tribunal and now in the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal.
Our specialist barristers are well known for representing clients in the First Tier Tribunal, Upper Tribunal, Court of Appeal and the European Court of Justice. The work undertaken is diverse and includes asylum appeals, entry clearance appeals (commercial and non-commercial), human rights and detention cases. Counsel are relied upon to provide advice to solicitors at the earliest possible stage of the application/appeal process and have been instrumental in achieving fresh decisions from the Secretary of State in order to avoid the costs of onwards challenges.
