Protection against deportation and expulsion

Get advice

If for any reason you were ordered to leave a foreign country where you are present, we will help to appeal this decision.

Protection against deportation and other forms of expulsion is our specialisation. Among our clients are people:

In such cases, we go beyond national administrative and judicial bodies. We have considerable experience in representing individuals before 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).

It is never too late to contact us – we often deal with cases where even experienced legal professionals overlook arguments against expulsion, or do not know how to utilise international protection mechanisms. Usually we are able to find a suitable solution.
