Sanaz is a renowned immigration advocate with a wide ranging practice in personal and business immigration, asylum, human rights and public law. She has specialised in these areas for over 20 years and has had considerable experience in representing EU nationals and their families.
Sanaz has represented in a number of significant cases over the last few years resulting in amendments to the law. These include:
•The Queen on the application of D v Secretary of State for the Home Department  – Permission granted on judicial review. It was argued that a domestic violence application was a human rights application and on this basis, the applicant ought to have a right of appeal to the First Tier Tribunal.
•The Queen on the application of P v SSHD  – Sanaz was led by Anthony Metzer QC in this significant judicial review where it was argued that the EEA Regulations were unlawful in failing to recognise the extended family members of an EEA national’s spouse. A second challenge was raised challenging the removal of appeal rights for extended family members following Banger. The SSHD conceded the written application on the basis that she would amend the Regulations, which was done – see changes in regulations here.
