Appeals

First-tier, Upper-tier Tribunal, Judicial Review and Court of Appeal

A large proportion of our work is contentious – that means we assist people with challenging negative decisions and have an exceptionally high success rate.

We handle immigration appeals at First-tier tribunals all over the United Kingdom, appeals to the Upper-tier Tribunal, and where necessary take matters further to the High Court (Administrative Court), Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.

Our work includes advising appellants on the merits of their case, drafting grounds of appeal, preparation of the bundle of documents and witness statements, instructing expert witnesses where necessary, thorough legal research, and representation in court.

The rules governing the rights of appeal are complex, and the decision makers sometimes erroneously advise applicants that their decision is not appealable. The Home Office are in the process of limiting appeal rights for many applicants, therefore applicants will need to seek advice on alternative options such as judicial review or administrative review. We would strongly advise anyone with an adverse decision from the Home Office to contact us for advice regarding your right of appeal.

Where an immigration appeal is not an option, a decision of the immigration authorities can be challenged by way of Judicial Review on the basis of improper exercise of power, breach of procedure, or breach of the Human Rights.

In the more complex and challenging cases requiring team work, we work in close collaboration with some of the leading barristers in the country.

Fountain Solicitors possess many years of experience in preparing and presenting appeals. Our attention to detail during case preparation, combined with the advocacy skills of our experienced Immigration Solicitors, gives you the best possible chance of success as you pursue your appeal.
