Immigration Judicial Review
As a direct access immigration barrister Paul has a wealth of experience for those who may have been the victim of an unlawful immigration decision that can be challenged by an application for judicial review.
Perhaps you have made an application and the UKBA have denied you a right of appeal?
Or they are refusing you or a family member leave to remain or enter the United Kingdom?
These are some of the types of cases that can, in certain circumstances, be the subject of challenge by way of judicial review.
Judicial review is a challenge to the decision of the executive, often in this case the UKBA. It is a particularly complicated area of law and one that needs to be approached with care.
Paul has been dealing with applications for judicial review since 1999. He is able to offer an unique perspective as between 1999 and 2002 he worked for the Treasury Solicitor and has an understanding of how the UKBA works. Since 2002 he has dedicated himself to working for Claimants and is an extremely experienced and respected practioner in this specialist field. He prepares several hundred applications for judicial review every year and regularly appears in the High Court and Court of Appeal on behalf of his clients.
He is able to advise on and draft judicial review grounds at short notice as he understands that it can often be the case that an application for judicial review is required to prevent an individual being unlawfully removed from the UK. He can, because he is licensed by the Bar Council as a direct access immigration barrister to do so, prepare all aspects of the judicial review claim and will work closely with you to ensure that any application enjoys the best prospects of success.
