Position

Marcia joined as a partner in the immigration team in January 2014. She has practised in the area of immigration, nationality and European law since 1998. She has had a long career in the field of immigration and is incredibly passionate about this area of law. She has won a number of challenges against the Home Office regarding complex cases, which have resulted in discretionary leave for her clients. She has a collaborative approach with the Home Office and government officials, and is often invited to participate in consultations and round table discussions on changes to UK and European immigration. Whilst some of these meetings are conducted under Chatham House rules, her input to these discussions is well received and often incorporated into material produced by the government.

Marcia has always been considered an ‘all-rounder’ in immigration due to her experience of advising clients, private as well as corporate, on all aspects of the immigration rules/points based system and discretionary applications.
