Zubair Mughal

Zubair Mughal is an immigration, family and civil barrister with a particular expertise in seeking and obtaining permission to appeal (to the Upper Tribunal, High Court and Court of Appeal).

Zubair previously worked for the Home Office as a presenting officer; where he was required to represent the Home Office at the First Tier Tribunal (IAC). Having this experience, Zubair is often asked to advise his clients in relation to immigration matters from the "perspective of the Home Office".

Zubair has also gained substantial experience in the County Courts. He regularly represents clients in family and civil matters at all stages of proceedings.

My approach

Zubair's approach is simple and transparent. The initial telephone consultation with any prospective client is free. During this consultation, Zubair will discuss the necessary legal steps required to be undertaken, along with a quote for his services.

By doing so, the client is clear as to what they are instructing Zubair to do, and what service they should expect to receive.

What my clients say

“(…) He explained the issues succinctly and clearly and immediately identified the important point upon which the appeal was eventually allowed. His client had actually already been deported to Holland and had come back for the appeal. His client was immediately detained when he arrived back in the UK, so there were those added complications. He was extremely well prepared and made everyone feel at ease. (…)”  (Judge)
