Immigration Solicitor

Robert is a UK immigration specialist who has, since the UK’s referendum decision to leave European Union, been advising his EEA clients and their family members and employers on the post Brexit landscape and how it affects them. Robert was invited to sit on a working party by the Home Office on behalf on the Law Society to help shape the settled status scheme for EEA nationals and their family members.

As a specialist immigration lawyer Robert can provide advice to high net worth individuals and those seeking to settle, study or visit the UK. Robert also provides immigration services to corporate clients, including financial institutions, multinational companies and other law firms. Robert is an experienced advocate and regularly appears before the Immigration and Asylum Chamber.

Robert has been providing immigration advice since 2000. He is able to advise on all aspects of UK Immigration and Nationality law. He was one of the first practitioners to challenge decisions under the Points Based System and has a detailed understanding of its operation and how it affects his clients.

Robert works with High Net Worth individuals and their families to find the best way to obtain residence and, ultimately, citizenship in the UK and other European countries. Robert also has a specialist interest in partnership work and has for many years provided advice to spouses, civil partners, fiancé(e)s and unmarried partners. He also works with those who have overstayed their visa in the UK or have complex immigration histories.

Robert has for many years advised European nationals and their families on their settlement and employment rights. The UK’s decision to leave the European Union could have profound effects on families who have for many years lived in the UK whilst exercising their Treaty rights. Robert is on hand to advise and assist Europeans and their families.

Robert sat on the Law Society’s Immigration Committee for six years. He has lectured widely and has sat on working parties with the Home Office to help shape policy.

Robert is also accredited by the Law Society in Criminal Litigation. He can provide advice and assistance at the police station in all criminal matters including immigration offences.
