Message from the LTP Partners – Milla Walker, Jawaid Luqmani and Sally Thompson

We are doing all we can to ensure that work on behalf of our clients continues with the least amount of disruption, whilst at the same time strictly observing the Government guidelines and advice. We are pleased to be able to report that despite the restrictions, the team are continuing to work to their usual high standard, so can reassure our clients and potential clients that business is as usual.

We welcome new clients who can contact us in the usual way by phone, email or through our website. Telephone enquiries are put through to a fee earning member of the team.

As a business we are fortunate to have already had in place business continuity measures which had been fully tested before this current crisis, and this is enabling us to continue with our service.

The legal team, our receptionists, the accounts department and our IT support are all working safely from home but the office remains fully operational and open for essential business.  Please do not attend the building as there will be no opportunity to meet with team members, although the mail drop box is checked every working day.

We will keep our website updated with any significant changes to our working practices but please contact us if you have any particular queries about our service.

Finally, we want to thank our amazing team and our clients for supporting our business through this difficult time. We have been humbled by the support.

Thank you and keep safe

Our People

The solicitors at Luqmani Thompson & Partners are described in Chambers and Partners 2018: What the team is known for Specialist immigration practitioners, expertly guiding clients through PBS, deportation, human rights and asylum matters. Bolstered by considerable experience in judicial review and SIAC proceedings.

London Immigration Solicitors

The variety of our clients and the range of cases we handle mean the London immigration solicitors at Luqmani Thompson & Partners appeal to a wide cross-section of people seeking expert advice on both personal and business immigration as well as human rights law. We regularly advise the following groups:

  • Skilled migrants making applications under points-based system applications
  • Employers of migrants and educational institutions in applications for sponsorship licenses as well as general regulatory compliance
  • Overseas students appealing against Home Office decisions to refuse leave to remain
  • European Union citizens and their family members seeking residence documentation or clarification on their rights and entitlements under Community law
  • People who have been in the UK for long periods who wish to regularise their immigration status on the basis of long residence, family life or compassionate grounds
  • People who the UK Border Agency are taking steps to deport or remove to their country of origin
  • Clients making asylum and protection claims

Our solicitors’ focus on immigration and human rights means they are alert to the fine detail of an area of law that changes frequently.

Job Vacancy – Paralegal

We are seeking to appoint one or more paralegals to assist our senior solicitors with their active caseloads including both immigration and public law matters.

Judgement of Supreme Court in SSHD -v- Vomero

Judgement has now finally been delivered in this long running dispute involving the rights of an EEA national to avoid deportation following a serious conviction and the relevant legal tests to be applied to those who have been resident for many years, but who have not established a permanent right of residence

Funding

We believe there are few other areas of law where the repercussions of a poorly made application or a failure to observe time limits are more serious than for our immigration law clients. Increasingly we represent people who, in the absence of legal aid, recognise the value of quality legal advice in this area and we offer a transparent fee structure. Against a background of cuts in state funding for legal services, a very small proportion of our work still continues to be legally aided.
