We provide immigration advice and services to businesses and individuals all over the world. For individuals, we understand the importance and impact of immigration matters to your family life and we work to minimise the same. For businesses, we take a strategic holistic approach, ensuring our work complements your commercial reality.  We provide exceptional client service with clear and candid advice. 

UK immigration law is constantly changing with complex requirements and processes. With the benefit of our team of immigration solicitors, we can advise and assist in all aspects of UK immigration law.

We provide all our immigration clients with a detailed estimate of costs as part of our initial meeting and engagement process and we normally offer a fixed fee for our services. You can also contact our offices for a free initial telephone discussion, so we can determine whether and how we can help you, before you book an appointment to meet and discuss your case further.

Information about our own complaints process, raising concerns to the Legal Ombudsman and to us

We want to give you the best possible service. However, if at any point you become unhappy or concerned about the service we provided then you should inform us immediately, so that we can do our best to resolve the problem.

In the first instance it may be helpful to contact the person who is working on your case to discuss your concerns and we will do our best to resolve any issues at this stage. If you would like to make a formal complaint, then you can read our full complaints procedure here. Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your case.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority can help you if you are concerned about our behaviour. This could be for things like dishonesty, taking or losing your money or treating you unfairly because of your age, a disability or other characteristic. 

You can raise your concerns with the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

What do to if we cannot resolve your complaint

The Legal Ombudsman can help you if we are unable to resolve your complaint ourselves. They will look at your complaint independently and it will not affect how we handle your case.

Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the Legal Ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first. If you have, then you must take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman:

  • Within six months of receiving a final response to your complaint; and,
  • No more than six years from the date of act/omission; or
  • No more than three years from when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint.
  • If you would like more information about the Legal Ombudsman, please contact them.
