Recent Cases

Case 1

Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) Migrant

Raashid successfully assisted an Australian national whose leave as a Tier 2 (General) Migrant had been curtailed as she ceased working for her employer. We successfully applied for our client to vary her leave to that of a Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) Migrant. She was granted leave to remain for five years in the UK therefore allowing her to pursue her specialist activities in the UK.

Case 2

Indefinite Leave to Remain for Tier 2 and dependant
Mr Hussain assisted an individual who had been residing in the UK as a Tier 2 (General) Migrant. She had procured the five years of residence which is required for indefinite leave to remain however she changed employer without seeking permission from UK Visas and Immigration. This resulted in complications in her application with a prospect of the client and her dependants losing their right to indefinite leave to remain. We were able to overcome the shortcomings in the application and our client and her dependants were granted indefinite leave to remain in the UK.

Mr Daniel skilfully assisted the couple in their re-applications effectively overturning the bans and securing them with their visit visas.

Case 2

Mr Daniel has successfully represented a business proprietor in his civil penalty matter the outcome of which was cancellation of a fine in the sum of £20,000.00 which naturally came as incredibly welcome news to a high street business owner. The shop owner ran two high street textile stores and was served with papers by Immigration Enforcement alleging he employed two workers illegally. Mr Daniel took conduct of the matter, representing the proprietor in responding to the Immigration Enforcement information request, formally challenging their upholding of the fine and then appealing it to the court. Immigration Enforcement agreed to cancel the fine without proceeding to a court hearing which potentially rescued the proprietor from incurring heavy financial losses.
