This information is intended to inform private individuals about our fees for immigration and nationality matters.
Full details of the specific qualifications of each of our fee earners can be found on the team page.
The key members of the immigration team working with private individuals are:
Saudul Haq – £250 per hour (Senior Solicitor with 10 years+ experience)
Lorenzo Alfano – £250 per hour (Solicitor with 10 years+ experience)
Sadiq Uddin – £150 per hour (Paralegal with 2 years experience)
As each matter will involve work by a Senior Solicitor or Solicitor and a Paralegal/Trainee Solicitor, the estimate of hours is based on an average hourly rate of £250 to reflect the involvement of lawyers at different levels.
Your matter will always be supervised by Mr Saudul Haq. Work will be completed by lawyers of varying experience. The estimated fee quotes are premised on the work being completed by lawyers across a range of levels, with time estimates using an average hourly rate to reflect the involvement of different lawyers. The time spent by lawyers at different levels will vary depending on a number of factors including the complexity and nature of the matter. The quotes assume that each stage of the work is conducted by an appropriate level of lawyer, if client preference dictates work be completed at a higher level, this will of course impact fee estimates.
The estimates set out here have been provided to give a range of likely fees for standard applications. Your fee estimate or fixed fee would be agreed prior to us formalising our engagement with you.
This fee quote assumes you meet the requirements of the Immigration Rules, EEA Regulations or British Nationality Act 1981 (as applicable) without requiring discretion to be exercised. It also assumes there are no other factors which make the application more complex such as a criminal record or a history of non-compliance with UK immigration.
In accordance with the price transparency rules, we have presented our prices in a clear and easy to understand format.
We charge a fixed agreed fee for the majority of immigration applications.
Where we act on this basis, our fee is based on what we consider reasonable taking into account the time that will likely be required to complete the matter based on our hourly rates, level of expertise involved, the urgency of the matter and the circumstances of your case, such as:
- The amount of supporting evidence we need to consider;
- Whether you are applying with dependants;
- The overall complexity of the case (e.g. whether you qualify under the Immigration Rules or we need to make a discretionary application, previous immigration history, any criminal convictions etc.)
If you are able to provide sufficient evidence at our first meeting, clearly meet the applicable Immigration Rules, and the application proceeds without any unforeseen complications, then the cost for a single applicant is likely to be in the region of the fees specified below.
