OISC Firm With Former Immigration Solictors
What are the differences between Immigration Solicitors and Barristers in immigration law?
There are a number of key differences in the roles that immigration solicitors and barristers undertake within law.
Immigration Solicitors are regulated by a body called the SRA which is based in Central London. The SRA regulates all solicitors, whether they undertake visa and immigration work or not. An immigration solicitor can undertake legal work outside of immigration law, such as advising criminals. In practice, however, many firms would have one lawyer who specialises in immigration law and another who would be able to advise and specialise in criminal law.
Barristers are those lawyers who have no direct specialisation in taking on cases from the beginning; rather they have traditionally been used to come into a case at a later point in he proceedings – either to attend court or to research a particularly unusual point of law. Whilst barristers have the time to research these points, they tend not to have little support administration or staff to enable them to take on a client from beginning to end.
Our staff includes former immigration solicitors, immigration barristers and other special legal advisors – all of whom provide expert advice to individuals in all matters relating to U.K bound immigration. Our team is made up of a wealth of individuals who all specialise in different areas, meaning together, we have a wealth of knowledge and experience to help you with your immigration case, whatever that may be. We have worked across a variety of different cases and have the expertise to assist with many different matters, no matter how complicated.
