London Bar > Immigration (including business immigration) Tier 1

Garden Court Chambers remains the ‘go-to set for immigration‘ with its deep bench that covers the full scope of work touching on nationality and deportation, asylum and international protection, national security, EU free movement, and business immigration. Acting across all courts, including up to the Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights, the set has significant experience handling complex appeals. The set has been deeply involved in the high-profile Rwanda litigation, with Amanda Weston KC and Sonali Naik KC leading Mark Symes, Isaac Ricca-Richardson, and Eva Doerr in AAA v Secretary of State for the Home Department, opposing the Government’s policy to remove persons who enter the UK irregularly, to seek asylum or otherwise, to the Central African country.  Stephanie Harrison KC leading Gordon Lee have similarly been active in the public inquiry into the allegations of ill-treatment at the Brook House immigration detention centre, and the set remains actively engaged with the wide-ranging litigation that has arisen from the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, with Nicola Braganza KC and Irena Sabic KC engaging with a number of these cases such as R (NBS) v SSHD.

Claimant set Garden Court North Chambers ‘is very dedicated to social justice’ and its members handle a wide variety of public law cases concerning human rights, immigration and asylum, inquests and public inquiries, housing, discrimination, community care, prison law and social welfare. The barristers also regularly represent vulnerable individuals and community groups. Public law specialist Pete Weatherby KC represented the family of Yousef Makki during the inquest into his death and the subsequent judicial review regarding the failure of the coroner to reach a proper conclusion. Tom Royston has a nationally notable practice in litigation concerning benefits payments, and he successfully argued in AM v SSWP that an individual should be able to seek to obtain backdated Universal Credit at any time, rather than only at the time of their first application. Anna Morris KC was appointed to silk in the 2023 round.
