Middle Temple | A Centre of Excellence for Private Legal Advice

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.

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.
Successful results | Our clients’ reviews
We welcome feedback from our immigration clients. Below are the latest three reviews (more testimonials are available on our UK visa & immigration success page):
I greatly appreciate all of kind and professional helps from LEXLAW team, especially I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Nagesh and Bimal whom always kindly respond when we needed to have a consultation regarding for the application. With the kind arrangements from LEXLAW team, I have been feeling reassured throughout the preparation processes. We could have submitted the actual application with confidence, but without anxiety while I had been waiting to receive my passport back with the successful result.
I just wanted to leave a short message to say how wonderful Lexlaw and in particular Behnaz were during our application process for a spousal visa. It was a stressful time for us and to know that every box was being ticked and all the paperwork was being looked after took a huge weight off our shoulders. I think it’s testament to the quality of the work Behnaz put in that our application was considered and approved in a relatively short time. Thank you!
We wanna say big thank you to LexLaw immigration Team. It was a pleasure to work with you. Thanks to you we can be together and build up our plans. We wish you all the best.Kind regards,Michal & Rafael
