Asylum and Human Rights

We provide full legal advice and representation in respect of Asylum claims in the UK. Our advice covers all aspects of an asylum claim as well as other forms of leave such as: Humanitarian Protection; Section 67 leave; and Discretionary Leave to remain in the UK. We also provide advice in relation to appeal rights and the procedure to challenge the refusal of an asylum claim. Following the successful outcome of an asylum claim, we also provide advice on the rights and entitlements including asylum support for those who are successful in obtaining refugee status or international protection.


Our immigration lawyers regularly advise on a very broad range of personal immigration matters and have in-depth knowledge of the systems and procedures to ensure that your application is processed with minimal stress.


In fighting against discrimination, we have significant expertise working at a high level in most of the following: individual discrimination rights; responsibilities and duties of employers; equality provisions under the Equality Act 2010; issues related to protected characteristics; and discrimination law generally and in particular outside the realm of employment.


Success in the context of an employment dispute will mean different things to different employers, and may often change on a case by case basis.

You can trust us to present your cases effectively and persuasively at Tribunals across the UK.

We deal with the full spectrum of Employment Tribunal claims, including:

  • unfair dismissal (including constructive unfair dismissal)
  • breach of contract
  • whistleblowing
  • discrimination (including harassment)
  • holiday pay
  • breach of collective consultation obligations in redundancy or TUPE transfer scenarios
  • unlawful deduction from wages
