Our UK Visas & Immigration Law Firm | LEXLAW Solicitors & Barristers
Our Immigration Team lawyers are London’s leading experts in UK Immigration Law. We are regularly featured in international print and broadcast media providing legal advice, research points and commentary on the UK Immigration Rules and policy.

Middle Temple | A Centre of Excellence for Private Legal Advice
We are based in professional chambers in Middle Temple, one of four Inns of Court that are centres of excellence for legal advice located in London.
We provide a personalised approach tailored to the individual needs of our clients. We are able to understand our client’s needs and also advise clients of the potential setbacks they may face in making an application or mounting an appeal and together devise a strategy to obtain a successful outcome.
We regularly assist UK businesses/employers in successfully obtaining Certificates of Sponsorship (previously known as work permits), Sole Representative visas and Business Visitor visas. We have a dedicated business immigration department dealing specifically with High Net Worth Clients, who need legal assistance and advice in applying for and then complying with Tier 1 Investor Visa and Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa requirements.
Our expert immigration legal team provide a bespoke immigration solution for any situation. We can deal with any UK immigration matter from visa applications to legal challenges such as contentious immigration cases involving bail, detention and deportation or complex refusal appeals. Our immigration team in the City of London deals daily with the Home Office and UK Embassies both in making visa applications and in managing legal appeals against their decisions at all levels.
Immigration Advice from Qualified Solicitors (not OISC caseworkers)
We are a bona fide UK law firm with qualified UK lawyers (solicitors and barristers), unlike Home Office registered OISC immigration businesses. OISC businesses usually operate without qualified UK lawyers and instead use low-skilled caseworkers who are not trained and not required to work to the professional standards expected of qualified solicitors or barristers.
OISC businesses are therefore not traditional law firms, whereas we are fully authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) as a UK Solicitors law firm. As a result we operate under strict codes of conduct and regulation and always act in the strictest confidence and in our client’s best interests. OISC firms on the other hand have no professional duties akin to those of solicitors or barristers and anyone can become an OISC adviser without any legal qualifications.
We constantly hear from new clients (who need to appeal failed Visa applications) about their experience of bad advice and visa application refusals as a result of poor working practices at OISC firms (see multiple media reports from the BBC, Telegraph, Daily Mail, Mirror or Google’s news service for ‘OISC Immigration‘ for more information).
All of our cases are handled by qualified immigration solicitors or immigration barristers from the outset when it matters the most. We are a leading City of London law firm with a track record of immigration application and immigration appeal success (just read through our client review pages). You can be completely assured that by using qualified lawyers in a professionally regulated law firm your immigration matter is in safe hands and that the best strategy for your case will always be adopted resulting in increased prospects of a successful application and avoidance of appeals.
