* I am often with a client or working on several client's matters, so I may not be immediately available when you call, but I do want to hear from you. Writing to me instead would get a faster response. Just fill in the little form below.
Areas of Practice
UK immigration law is constantly changing, and though plain language is used, many terms are quite often given narrow definitions by the Home Office. I help my clients navigate through the rules and assist with all types of visa/ entry clearance applications (in and outside the country) for Points-Based System (Tier 1 investors, artists, entrepreneurs, Tier 2 sponsor licensees, Tier 4 students, Tier 5 workers), difficult family or Human Rights visa applications (outside the rules), EEA applicants, settlement, citizenship, and I represent clients at Immigration Appeal Tribunals.
Criminal defence & victims of fraud
I represent clients who are formally arrested and charged with an offence in the UK, typically for assault, drug offences, sexual assault, and rape.
I also assist overseas clients who have been a victim of cyber fraud with some links to the UK, by helping with the initial police report and, where possible, return of the funds.
As part of my Tier 2 Sponsor Licence compliance support, I also advise employers on setting up their HR system, right to work checks, draft various types of employment contracts (permanent, fixed term, Zero-hour etc.), advise on any disciplinary/ grievance matters, advise on redundancies, and draft settlement agreements for companies offering a severance package, and advise on the same for those employees exiting the companies. I also advise individuals in any discrimination cases and assist with the negotiation of any final settlement.

Civil litigation covers a wide range of work. For me, I help businesses (small to medium) and individuals resolve any disputes with their suppliers, any sales, services, supply contracts gone wrong.
Sometimes it could be for something very unusual and unique, e.g. liaising with the bank for the return of erroneously transferred funds, representing a student-client’s position to their university on any academic decisions according to the institution’s by-laws. Experience tells me that no case is too strange.
