Immigration & Asylum Law

Members of Chambers have experience conducting cases at first instance on behalf of individuals claiming asylum or seeking access under the Immigration Rules. We can also offer Counsel to conduct any appeal that might arise on a point of law from such cases.

We regularly act for appellants at the Asylum and Immigration Tribunals located across the North-West and by video-link to tribunal centres nationwide. We are happy to accept both private work and publicly funded cases. For private work we can offer rates for advices, conferences and hearings and we can offer Queen’s Counsel as well as Junior Counsel to suit your needs.

Examples of cases that Counsel have been involved in include: Ahmed (Iftikhar) v Secretary of State for Home Department [CA] [2000] 1 N.L.R. 1 – Asylum refraining from conduct creating the risk of persecution; Ouaney v Secretary of State for Home Department [CA] [1998] 1WLR – Asylum meaning of particular social group.
