Jehanzeb is the Managing Associate and Head of our Immigration Department. He is dual-qualified as a Solicitor-Advocate of England & Wales and an Advocate of Pakistan and is working towards being called as a Barrister of England & Wales.

He has experience in complex litigation matters with a particular focus on commercial and shareholder disputes. Jehanzeb heads up our Immigration team as he has high-quality immigration law experience encompassing personal and business immigration applications, complex appeals and judicial review. Jehanzeb obtains exceptional results for his clients and can readily predict the outcome of any application once he has all the papers.

The firm has hired former Home Office lawyers and we therefore understand how application are dealt with by the Home Office. This rare insight into the Home Office decision making process gives us a cutting edge over other immigration firms who have not experienced the internal mechanics of the UK Home Office and how their policies and procedures result in immigration decisions. As a result we have had considerable success compared to other firms and are able to give careful and accurate advice at the outset (when it matters the most). This leads to clients getting the best possible results. Some of our recent successes include:

  • Urgently obtaining a business critical UK Sponsor Licence for a software development company based in London.
  • Issuing a detailed pre-action protocol letter challenging a decision of the Entry Clearance Officer to refuse a visit visa – the decision was overturned within two days of filing the pre-action protocol letter.
  • Re-instating Indefinite Leave to Remain for a client whose ILR had been revoked by the Home Office – this matter went to a full substantive hearing at the Upper Tribunal (where we successfully argued that the Home Office had breached its own policy in that deception occurred more than 5 years ago – therefore ILR should not have been revoked).
  • Urgent assistance to obtain a Graduate Visa by persuading University Directors to release the clients results in time in order to meet the successful completion requirement – the client was granted the visa within 10 days of instruction.
  • Obtaining British Citizenship for a child who had been rendered stateless by their country of origin.

In representing employers in civil penalties cases for illegal working, he has secured discounts of up to 100%, without the client ever having to set foot in Court and incur costs.

Jehanzeb helped us through such a difficult time. Our business was fined thousands of pounds. He advised us of the best course of action, kept us informed and secured a massive discount of 82% for us which we could pay in small instalments so our business could keep trading.

After completing his schooling with the College Academic Award from Aitchison College, widely recognised as the Eton College of Asia, Jehanzeb read Law at City, University of London where he obtained his LLB with Honours and the University of Law for his LLM. He graduated with Distinction in his Masters of Law post-graduate degree.

Jehanzeb has trained in advocacy and alternative dispute resolution under a senior Barrister of Atkin Chambers. He has the Higher Rights of Audience qualifications for both, Civil and Criminal matters, which means he can conduct advocacy in all Courts and Tribunals in England and Wales.

Jehanzeb was very efficient and responsive. He helped my children in an appeal to get visas to join me in the UK which was successful.

Jehanzeb is a member of the London Solicitors Litigation Association (LSLA) and the Lahore Bar Association (LBA). Jehanzeb serves as legal advisor to the Hope Uplift Foundation and has previously worked in collaboration with the Migrant Training Centre to conduct legal clinics. Outside of work, Jehanzeb undertakes real estate development projects with his family and can therefore readily understand Property Litigation disputes.

Jehanzeb helped me with a High Court case against me which had been ongoing for over 10 years. He negotiated and settled for less than 20% of the amount claimed and within 2 weeks of being instructed. I highly recommend him without reservation.
