Our People

Bolstered by considerable experience in judicial review and SIAC proceedings.

London Immigration Solicitors

The variety of our clients and the range of cases we handle mean the London immigration solicitors at Luqmani Thompson & Partners appeal to a wide cross-section of people seeking expert advice on both personal and business immigration as well as human rights law. We regularly advise the following groups:

  • Skilled migrants making applications under points-based system applications
  • Employers of migrants and educational institutions in applications for sponsorship licenses as well as general regulatory compliance
  • Overseas students appealing against Home Office decisions to refuse leave to remain
  • European Union citizens and their family members seeking residence documentation or clarification on their rights and entitlements under Community law
  • People who have been in the UK for long periods who wish to regularise their immigration status on the basis of long residence, family life or compassionate grounds
  • People who the UK Border Agency are taking steps to deport or remove to their country of origin
  • Clients making asylum and protection claims

Our solicitors’ focus on immigration and human rights means they are alert to the fine detail of an area of law that changes frequently.

LALY Awards Finalist

We are delighted to announce that our founding partner, Sally Thompson, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the 2018 LAPG Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Awards, in the category of Practice Management, due to her sterling management and leadership through the radical changes in our practice following the enactment of LASPO 2012 and the consequent huge cuts to legal aid.

Retirement of partner, Eileen Bye

Eileen Bye leaves the firm on 20 April 2018. She has been a stalwart fighter for the rights of her clients over several decades, championing the causes of some of the most vulnerable and highlighting injustices over a lengthy and distinguished career.

ECJ Grand Chamber ruling in case of Franco Vomero

The Grand Chamber of the Court of Justice in Luxembourg handed down judgement on the preliminary reference from the Supreme Court in the case of Franco Vomero on 17 April 2018. The case is linked with a preliminary reference from a German court in the case of B.


We believe there are few other areas of law where the repercussions of a poorly made application or a failure to observe time limits are more serious than for our immigration law clients. Increasingly we represent people who, in the absence of legal aid, recognise the value of quality legal advice in this area and we offer a transparent fee structure. Against a background of cuts in state funding for legal services, a very small proportion of our work still continues to be legally aided.
