Applying for asylum

Get advice

We have extensive experience of comprehensive legal support of clients during the entire procedure of processing applications for international protection ("political asylum", "asylum", "refugee status", "asyl") in European countries. Our lawyers have represented refugees or advised their counsels in Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Sweden and Switzerland. We also have a considerable experience in the asylum seekers’ rights protection at the European Court of Human Rights and specialised United Nations human rights bodies (Human Rights Committee, Committee against Torture, Committee on the Rights of the Child, Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women).

Our lawyers will prepare an application for asylum for you, help you to collect materials pertaining to your case, and prepare you for an interview with the migration authority. If need be, we will collect information about the country of your origin or contact the experts on the situation in your country and obtain their opinion. In the event your application for asylum is rejected, we will help appeal this decision before the court or an analogous national body.

Clients often contact us when all migration and judicial bodies have already refused to grant them asylum. In such instances, we study the case for the possibility of filing a new application for asylum or a complaint to an international body – the European Court of Human Rights or one of the UN Committees. We are convinced that something can be done with any case.

Experience shows that the sooner you contact us, the easier it will be to help you.
