Refugee and Human Rights Solicitors

As a niche Manchester-based law firm specialising in immigration law, we regularly advise clients throughout the North West and the UK on human rights and refugee law issues. Our lawyers draw on many years’ experience to provide clear, realistic legal advice on seeking protection under refugee and human rights Conventions.


How we can help

At Latitude Law, our lawyers are thoroughly experienced when it comes to providing legal advice to those seeking asylum in the UK, as well as those who are hoping to overturn Home Office decisions on appeal.

Our in-depth knowledge of refugee and human rights law allows us to provide a comprehensive assessment of your chances of success in light of current legislation, case law and Home Office policy.

Our refugee and human rights law solicitors regularly advise clients on:

  • Applying for asylum
  • Human rights law
  • Obtaining refugee or humanitarian protection
  • Obtaining the right for your family to join you in the UK
  • Challenging Home Office decisions
  • Appealing to the immigration tribunal

Applying for asylum

Asylum law is particularly complex, which is why it’s important you gain expert legal advice. To be considered for asylum you must demonstrate that you’re at risk of persecution if you return to your native country and your government is unwilling to offer you protection.

Our solicitors have extensive experience preparing and providing guidance to refugees who are applying for asylum.  If your claim succeeds you and your dependants will be granted 5 years’ leave to remain in the UK. You will have the right to have immediate family members join you under family reunion rules, and our specialist asylum solicitors can prepare the strongest possible visa application to the British Embassy or High Commission on your behalf.

Why choose Latitude Law?

We are experienced advocates before the tribunal, and possess particular expertise in ISC, Middle Eastern and African cases. Working together with renowned UK experts and leading immigration barristers, our human rights and refugee lawyers have acted in cases at all levels of the tribunal, taking cases up to the Court of Appeal in England.

What our clients say…

UK Entry Clearance Granted

I would like to express my most sincere gratitude to Joel Reiss for his amazing service in relation to my visa application.

Reiss was outstanding as a consultant and adviser and my family and I highly value the efforts he took; we are deeply appriciative of his work and knowledge in the legal matters, processes and proceedings. He prepared our application including a covering letter from scratch, which he refined through discussion before making it an impeccable one to refuse. There were a few complicated elements surrounding our application and we believe had it not been for Mr.Reiss and his flawless services together with the expertise of Latitude Law, we would not have recieved our visa.

He was quick in clarifying our queries and made it a point to reply as soon as possible. Even when we had to be away from work, Reiss made sure our application was not interrupted and it could be filed on time. The constant communication and the replies continued even after the application was submitted and the services were paid for all the way till we recieved the decision. We have even been informed of the travel guidelines and quarantine regulations, and I honestly believe the fee we paid did not include these supplementary services.

I would also like to extend my upmost appreciation to Gary McIndoe, the Director, Latitude Law and everybody else at the firm including Jessica Lee for their service and cooperation.

I would not think twice in recommending Joel Reiss and Latitude Law for visa application and allied services.

Success for the Bouameur Family

I am writing this on behalf of the whole family, we would like to say thank you. These two words are such small words for the gratitude and high regard we all hold you in.

Your firm and especially you have been with us throughout the difficult years we have had and you have always been there when we needed picking up, our shoulder to cry on that saw us through with honesty and realistic advice.

I cannot recommend your firm and you enough to people who find themselves at the mercy of a system that at best can be described as confusing.

You have given us back our lives and for that you will always be a cherished member of our family and never forgotten

Many many thanks to you and your team for everything

The Bouameur Family
