Asylum Seekers and Refugees
Keith conducts judicial review cases for refugees and asylum seekers in the Administrative Court and Upper Tribunal (IAC).
These have included judicial reviews on behalf of victims of torture. He has successfully represented children threatened with removal on the grounds that the Home Office had failed to take into account the child’s best interests.
He brings claims against Home Office refusals of asylum fresh claims, fee waiver decisions, visa refusals, and against local Councils who fail to provide any or sufficient support for families under s.17 Children Act 1989.
In 2018, after 3 Judicial Review challenges in succession against the SSHD he succeeded for a victim of domestic violence where the Home Office refused to recognise this was a human rights claim. The woman was eventually granted indefinite leave to remain.
