The Spear’s 500 2016: Partner Anita Vasisht recognised in Best Immigration Lawyer category
Date posted: 2 November 2015
The Spear’s 500 is a guide to the top lawyers, wealth managers, art advisers and other service providers for high net worth clients.
Banded “Best of Breed”, partner Anita Vasisht is the only UK lawyer profiled in the 2016 guide specifically for her asylum and human rights expertise.
Before joining Wilsons, Anita worked in Amnesty International’s legal office. She has vast experience in all aspects of Immigration Law and has worked very closely with clients from the Middle East and Russia. She now specialises in complex political asylum and national security cases in SIAC and the High court and is currently representing a witness in the Litvinenko Inquiry.
A recent professional recommendation from a Russian client included the following comment: “I have worked with Anita on a tough immigration case and have a very good experience of achieving agreed goals while keeping budgets under control.”
In her Spear’s profile, Anita discusses the case of a businessman client who escaped political and mafia persecution as follows:
“… (his case) had met with disbelief from the Home Office … I listened to him carefully and researched the issues, working with a relevant expert … The judge allowed the appeal and believed every word the businessman said. It’s nice to be able to return to your clients their dignity.”
