Robert is a specialist immigration lawyer providing advice to high net worth individuals and those seeking to settle, study or visit the UK. He has been providing immigration advice since 2000 (and qualified as a solicitor in 2001). He is able to provide immigration advice on all aspects of UK immigration and nationality law. 

Robert sits on the Law Society’s immigration law committee which regularly meets with senior UKVI and Home Office to discuss policy, implementation and the operation of the various immigration routes. He has represented the Law Society in the Home Office’s consultation with stakeholders on the roll out of the Settled Status scheme which replaces free movement rights once the UK leaves the European Union. Robert has been invited to sit on several Home Office working parties including the consultative group working on the Points Based Scheme which marked one of the largest and most complex overhauls to the immigration rules in recent times.

Robert regularly appears before both the First and Upper Tier Tribunals in immigration and asylum appeals and is considered to be a persuasive advocate. He was one of the first practitioners to challenge Home Office decisions after the implementation of the Points Based System. He has also had conduct of cases in the Administrative Court and Court of Appeal. Robert has been instructed by the High Court to provide advices in Family proceedings where there are associated immigration issues, usually relating to children or vulnerable adults.

Robert has both written and delivered training on a wide range of immigration topics for ILPA (Immigration Law Practitioners Association), Lexis Nexis and other well-known providers. He also taught the post-graduate immigration law elective at BPP Law School whilst in private practice. He regularly produces legal updates for general publication and provides pro bono advice at UKLGIG’s monthly partnership meetings.
