Immigration in Regional Bar

No5 Barristers Chambers

No5 Barristers Chambers is home to a claimant-focused team with strong experience in both first tier and upper tribunal cases, with recent cases including asylum appeals, the conflict between criminal convictions and the need for medical treatment in deportation decisions, and unaccompanied matters involving unaccompanied minors. Additionally, members are highly experienced in Court of Appeal proceedings, with Abid Mahmood recently undertaking several cases at that level including Gaddu v Secretary of State, which concerned if minor infractions such as police cautions for minor offences preclude individuals from complying with "good character" requirements, while Mark Bradshaw represents the claimant in SA (Iraq) v Secretary of State for the Home Department, which considers whether a Iraqi Kurd from outside the Kurdistan Regional Government area can reasonably be expected to relocate there.
