As a firm, we boast not only one of the top ranked immigration departments but also one of the top administrative and public law teams. Working together, we are particularly well placed to advance judicial reviews of Home Office decisions.
The Immigration Act 2014 removed many of the appeal rights you may have previously enjoyed. It is likely that these rights will be further restricted with forthcoming legislation. Judicial review is therefore becoming an increasingly important way to challenge the Home Office. You may have been refused without a right of appeal, have exhausted your appeal rights, or been subject to excessive delays in your application process. If you don’t have an adequate remedy, judicial review may be the appropriate way to challenge a decision of the Home Office.
If, after assessing your situation and all your options, we advise that judicial review is the best way forward, we will ensure you understand what the process involves.
We will work with our administrative and public law team as well as a barrister as appropriate.
As our aim will be to help you reach your UK immigration goals as quickly as possible, we will seek opportunities to resolve your case as quickly as possible. This may mean we are able to settle the matter by consent with the other side or it could mean we have progress to a full hearing. As the process can be a long one, we will keep your options under review and if alternative possibilities arise ensure you are fully advised of them.
We can bring a collaborative approach to your judicial review. Our cross-departmental work means you will benefit from our knowledge of the immigration rules your substantive case relies on and our colleagues in the public law team’s in-depth knowledge and experience of the procedural elements of judicial review.
