We also assist with litigation, including appeals to the First-Tier and Upper Tribunal and applications for administrative review.
Most individuals seeking to enter the UK have to obtain an entry visa (called “Entry Clearance”) before they can travel to the UK. Our immigration lawyers routinely assist with Entry Clearance applications for all visa categories, including Tier 1 (Investor), Tier 1 (Entrepreneur), Tier 2 (General), Tier 2 (Intra-Company Transfer), spouse, unmarried partner, civil partner, ancestry, and EEA Family Permit.
Once in the UK, most migrants will have to extend their visa (called “Leave to Remain”) before they can apply to settle in the UK permanently. Our immigration solicitors and barristers have a wealth of experience in applying for Leave to Remain on behalf of family members, Tier 2 migrants, Tier 1 (Investor) migrants, Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) migrants, partners of British citizens and Dependants of Points-Based System migrants.
On completing the requisite number of years residence in the UK (usually five years), some visa categories permit individuals to apply to settle in the United Kingdom (called “Indefinite Leave to Remain” or, in the case of non-European family members, “Permanent Residence“). Our immigration lawyers can assist with all Indefinite Leave to Remain and Permanent Residency applications.
All individuals who have obtained settlement in the UK (whether Indefinite Leave to Remain or Permanent Residence) may be able to apply for British citizenship (called “naturalisation”). Such applications can usually be made one year after the individual has been granted ILR or PR. Our team of immigration solicitors and barristers can assist with all naturalisation and British passport applications.
