Human Rights, Refugee & Asylum Applications

Human Rights, Refugee & Asylum Applications

Our Immigration specialists can advise clients on all of the options open to them, including applications and/or appeals on the basis that your human rights have been or are at risk of being infringed.

We also advise regularly on asylum claims and offer a comprehensive service for those who are seeking safety in the UK as a refugee or for humanitarian protection.

Our Immigration specialists have expertise in assisting individuals subject to extradition with making asylum claims. You may fear that the charges against you in your home country are politically motivated or that you will be subject to torture, inhumane or degrading conditions if detained following extradition. This can form the basis of an asylum claim.

You may have already decided that you need to claim asylum or make a human rights application. Alternatively, you may need advice on the options open to you.

Whatever stage you are at, our Immigration specialists can advise you about how you may wish to proceed as well as preparing a thorough application for you, if appropriate.


We appreciate that worry about costs can be the biggest barrier to getting professional help – but don’t let it stop you. We offer a competitively priced service for all private immigration matters including a range of fixed fee options.

The fixed fee services are designed to make Immigration advice accessible and affordable and to give peace of mind that you will know from the outset the total costs. For information on these fixed fees please see here.

Flexible Appointments

Our Immigration specialists understand it’s not always possible to attend our offices, that’s why our team offer appointments via SKYPE and via telephone, as well as face to face.
