Immigration: For Businesses
Immigration: For Individuals
Immigration: Judicial Review, Admin Review and Appeals

Gherson LLP is renowned for its work in the private client sector and for achieving successful outcomes for their clients, often in the most challenging of circumstances. As UK Immigration Law becomes ever more politicised, so the rules and regulations become ever more complex, and near impossible for clients to navigate without legal assistance. Securing the right to enter and live and work in the UK is a life changing event for those who are not British. The solicitors at Gherson never lose sight of the fact that only by submitting the very best application possible on behalf of their clients, are they assured of achieving the very best outcome possible, and that outcome is critical to their clients. It is this passion to succeed and to ensure their clients are granted the status they have applied for that sets this team apart. They are driven to succeed.

2 partners, 13 fee earners

Gherson is renowned for its unrivalled success in some of the most complicated international protection and human rights-based immigration applications and appeals. The firm has achieved notoriety for successfully acting in very high-profile cases for clients whose circumstances are often very complex.

Gherson frequently acts for clients in matters of Asylum, Extradition, Sanctions, INTERPOL rules, UWOs (unexplained wealth orders), Sanctions, WFOs (worldwide freezing orders), and Human rights claims. In all these cases, the firm’s lawyers’ in-depth knowledge of human rights arguments and legal principles is crucial to providing comprehensive and overarching advice and protecting their clients’ fundamental rights and interests.

In addition, Gherson intervenes regularly in cases outside the jurisdiction in the UK, advising and assisting on evidence gathering and the deployment of international human rights and refugee law principles before foreign domestic courts. Gherson has assembled dedicated teams of highly experienced solicitors and Counsel to provide comprehensive strategic support in such cases and provides crucial expertise and proactive case management to its clients, whether they are facing extradition to a third country and/or seeking protection from that country.

White Collar Crime, Regulatory and Investigations:

In many of the complex immigration matters in which the firm acts there are parallel ‘criminal’ proceedings – be it an extradition request or related INTERPOL and property freezing matters, or white collar crime allegations. Gherson’s boutique white collar crime, regulatory and investigations department’s experience in managing these nuanced situations is invaluable. Gherson is instructed in the first Unexplained Wealth Order cases in the UK and is at the forefront of this emerging area. Gherson acted for over 25% of the individuals listed in the EU sanctions regime for Ukraine and has secured several permanent deletions.
