Immigration

We take pride in the quality of the work and assistance we provide to our client’s, which is demonstrated by our very high success rate achieved in the cases that we take on. Our dedicated Immigration Team routinely assist clients on a full spectrum of immigration law on a daily basis.

Our solicitor, Mr Manzoor Ahmad Shah, has substantial experience and in-depth knowledge of UK Immigration Laws and procedures to advise and represent clients in all aspects of immigration law, EU Regulations relating to migrants in the UK and Citizenship and Nationality Law.

We are happy to assist our private clients in relocating and settling in the UK, EEA applications, Leave to Remain applications under Tier 1, 2, 4, 5 and applications under the current Points-Based System, applications for Indefinite Leave to Remain, Nationality matters, applications for registration as British nationals, passport applications, as well as helping clients with more complex issues should they arise. We advise on cases across the entire spectrum of Private Client UK immigration law and are well-versed in helping individuals throughout the whole preparation and application process.

We are dedicated to assisting our Corporate Clients in all areas of corporate immigration, from gaining Sponsor Licences to recruitment advice and avoiding criminal and civil penalties. We assist our corporate clients with advice on all issues pertaining to running a business in compliance with current immigration laws and hiring and maintaining migrant workers and represented corporate clients in their challenges to penalties imposed by Home Office for employing illegal workers.

Shah Law Chambers is committed to protecting the rights to liberty and to ensure that those unlawfully deprived of their liberties are represented. We have dealt with complex and unique cases, including refusals from the Home Office, asylum claims, Human Rights applications, extradition, sanctions, Deportation Orders and Immigration Detention. These cases require a deep and thorough understanding of UK Immigration Law and Criminal Law. We have successfully challenged Home Office decisions at the First Tier Tribunal and the Upper Tribunal, through complex appeals, Judicial Reviews and Administrative Review.

The Principal, Mr Shah, is assisted by a dedicated Immigration team, who will help you in all privately funded matters. Unfortunately, we are currently unable to assist you under Legal Aid for Immigration cases.
