  • Asylum cases, from initial claim through to presenting appeals in the First Tier and Upper Tribunal, to the Court of Session.
  • Immigration bail hearings 
  • Judicial review proceedings
  • Immigration applications
  • Human Rights aplications
  • Business immigration 
  • Visa applications
  • Legal aid and Private client work
