Date posted: 18 October 2019

We are very proud and delighted to announce that our Immigration, Family and Public Law teams were all ranked or mentioned in the Chambers UK 2020 guide.

Below is a summary of the feedback which has been given about our work.

“The firm has a national reputation for quality work. The partners are proud to deliver a dynamic and professional service to their clients. The staff are renowned for their tenacious, hands-on approach and commitment to their clients’ cases. They are well able to think ‘out of the box’.

“The firm is committed to providing excellent work at a reasonable cost. All partners have experience in legal aid and this has led to efficient working practices and a ‘costs conscious’ culture in the firm. Clients receive a personalised service tailored to their individual needs.

“Clients are listened to and given clear guidance. Difficult legal issues are demystified. The firm is able to provide wise tactical advice in resolving clients’ cases. The firm flourishes on personal recommendation from satisfied clients. In the summer of 2018 the firm opened a central London office at 38 Chancery Lane in order to develop its private client work.”

“Advises both self-funded and legal aid clients across the whole spectrum of immigration law, including cases involving deportation, asylum, trafficking and unlawful detention. Especially notable for its work for gay asylum seekers. Advises on cases before courts at all levels of the domestic system, as well as European courts. Able to assist clients with national security-related cases, with recent work on SIAC-related matters.”

We were particularly proud to receive the following feedback:

“The level of knowledge across the team is extraordinarily high and the wealth of experience in that firm is unparalleled. They’re an excellent firm.”

A “lifelong battler for clients whose asylum claims are based on sexual and gender identity,Matthew Davies is “one of the best in the country.”

Ana Gonzalez is “an extremely dedicated lawyer who really cares for her clients and relentlessly fights for their rights”.

Michael Hanley: “His breadth of knowledge is really unequalled. He will move every stone to advance his clients’ cases and does it in a very creative way.”

Anita Vasisht is “very patient, quick to pick up on the intricacies of a case and receptive to considering new ideas”.

“Well-regarded family practice noted for its specialism in public law cases involving the welfare of children. Regularly represents parents, guardians and children in complex care proceedings, including those involving sensitive mental health issues, and allegations of non-accidental injury. Public law expertise augmented by strong immigration and Court of Protection offering. Baljit Bains is a key contact at the firm.”

One source notes: “They’re committed to their clients, and they’re always well prepared and efficient in their interactions.”

From the Public Law team, James Elliot was ranked as a Recognised Practitioner.

Congratulations to everyone!
