Our pricing for representing you and bringing your case before the Immigration Tribunal.

The above is not a cap on fees and cases can exceed these costs due to the complexity of the case.

Factors that could make a case more complex:

If it is necessary to further appeal your case or file a judicial Review or to provide further information about an existing matter

Drafting grounds for an appeal that are brought by the Appellant in person

Making or defending a costs application

The number of witnesses and documents

Any appeal to court decisions

Whether our advice is followed

The more of these factors apply to your case, the higher the level of complexity. In more complex cases additional time will require to be spent on your matter in turn increasing the likely cost.



Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such expert fees (e.g. medical expert to ascertain disability). We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.

Counsel’s fees estimated between £1,000 – £2,500 per day (depending on experience of the advocate) for attending a Tribunal Hearing. There is likely to be a ‘brief fee’ in addition to the above attendance fees, the level of which would depend upon the complexity of your matter and the numbers of days listed. However, this could be in the range of £500 + VAT for a simple case to £5,000 + VAT for a high complexity case. Generally, we would allow 1-3 days for a low complexity case, 4-7 days for a medium complexity case and 8-10 days for a High complexity case.

Key stages

The fees set out above cover all the work in relation to the following key stages of a claim:

Taking your initial instructions, reviewing the papers and advising you on merits and likely outcome of your case.  (this is likely to be revisited throughout the matter and subject to change)

Challenging decisions /Preparing a response

Reviewing and advising on a matter or response from other party

Exploring considerations and compensations throughout the process

Preparing for (and attending) a Preliminary Hearing

Exchanging documents with the other party and agreeing a bundle of documents

Taking witness statements, drafting statements, and agreeing their content with witnesses

preparing bundle of documents

Reviewing and advising on the other party’s witness statements

agreeing a list of issues, a chronology and/or cast list

Preparation and attendance at Final Hearing, including instructions to Counsel

The stages set out above are an indication and if some of stages above are not required, the fee may be reduced. You may wish to handle the claim yourself and only have our advice in relation to some of the stages. This can also be arranged on your individual needs and specific quote can be provided upon your instructions.

How long will my matter take?

The time that it takes from taking your initial instructions to the final resolution of your matter depends largely on the stage at which your case is resolved. If a settlement is reached during pre-action claim or reconsideration, your case is likely to take 6-8 weeks. If your matter proceeds to a Final Hearing, your case is likely to take 6-12 months. This is just an estimate, and we will of course be able to give you a more accurate timescale once we have more information as to the complexity of your case and as the matter progresses. As you will appreciate the Immigration Tribunals are also very busy right now and so your case could take longer.
