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.

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

Sally Thompson was one of the proud recipients of a LALY award at a celebration in central London on 10 July 2019 where the prizes were handed out by Baroness Helena Kennedy QC, celebrating the commitment by individuals and dedicated to ensuring that justice is available to all


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.
