North London Asylum And Protection Claims Solicitors
Our experience in asylum work, including handling cases of extreme complexity, means that we continue to receive many enquiries from clients seeking representation. We also have a great deal of experience representing clients in protection and asylum appeals cases when their claims have been refused.
Handling Your Asylum Application
Our London asylum lawyers guide clients through the entire asylum process. Each case is unique and we never forget the high personal stakes for all those involved in this type of case. We have well-established processes in place to ensure that we pay careful attention to the detail of all aspects of your particular circumstances. Our work on your behalf will include:
- Preparing a detailed statement on the reasons for claiming asylum
- Country background research and representations in support of the application
- Detailed advice on the various stages in the Home Office process, including guidance on the initial claim and attendance at both the screening interview and the substantive interview
- Practical advice on the decision and on your rights of appeal
- Representation at an appeal if the case has sufficient merit
Our high level of expertise in asylum law means that, in the event of an appeal, our team will often personally represent you in court without passing your case to an external barrister. This means you have a single point of contact throughout your case with a lawyer who is familiar with every aspect of your claim. This provides a sense of continuity and reduces the stress that is often associated with court appearances.
