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.
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):
MASSIVE THANK YOU to the entire immigration team at LEXLAW. From our first initial meeting to handing in our application, The team were incredibly thorough, helpful, supportive, and extremely knowledgeable with exactly what we needed to do to have a successful application. We are truly grateful and would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone in need of immigration solicitors. We felt confident in their knowledge and bottom line, they get the job done. The immigration team were incredibly thorough with every ounce of paperwork needed to be completed and stayed on top of every correspondence and were very timely with responding to our questions or comments. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to our case.
Dear Hillary, Thank you for your kind testimonial. It has been a pleasure being instructed by you and we wish you the best for the future. Kind regards, LEXLAW Immigration Team
Many thanks for the best help and support during visa preparations to Bimal, Afeefah, Aisha and the rest of the Lexlaw team. They are absolutely the best team for getting the job done in time while providing you with a peace of mind. No wonder they have a 100% success rate with spousal visa applications! I will definitely use Lexlaw in the future. I would most definitely refer them to anybody who requires help with immigration services. Once again thank you for all your help and support!
Dear Kasja, it was our pleasure to assist you and your partner and we wish you well for the future. Kind regards, LEXLAW ImmigrationTeam
We are so delighted and can't thank the LEXLAW immigration team enough especially Behnaz for all the hard work and due diligence that made this a success. From meeting with Bimal at the outset, through to working with Behnaz in putting together the application we were confident we were in good hands.Aisha was very reassuring on the day of the Premium Service and dealt with our nerves admirably but needless to say we were terrified inside of what the result might be. It's a funny thing when you know you meet the criteria but it comes down to someone's interpretation of your application and that's where I truly believe we couldn't have done this without the LEXLAW immigration team. I think the volume of documentation proved that!The relief I felt when that word 'approved' was uttered I can't even begin to describe. We went over to my parents place yesterday and had a dinner with my family. Everyone is so relieved and happy that we can continue to live here to be close to them. It means so much to them and us.
Dear K & P. Thank you for your kind words. We are delighted with the successful result and were happy to accompany you to your premium appointment at the visa centre so you could obtain your visa. Kind regards, LEXLAW Immigration Team.
