About Us

                                      Loughran & Co. is a dynamic firm in the ever changing field of immigration and asylum law. We deal with the broad range of issues raised in the field with efficiency and expertise, handling everything from simple immigration applications to complex appeals against challengeable Home Office and Entry Clearance decisions. We also deal with complicated asylum applications and appeals from countries worldwide. No matter what your immigration issue we can help.

Our fully personalised services cover the broad range of immigration issues, from spouse and visitor visa applications and appeals to sponsorship, Tier 1 to 5 applications, family reunions applications for refugees, to complex appeals before the First-Tier and Upper Tribunals. We specialise in family immigration issues, both within the immigration rules and also in relation to issues raised by Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (Family & Private Life) .

We are a firm dedicated solely to the practice of immigration and asylum law. We keep up to date with the constant changes that occur in this rapidly developing field. We aim to track the most recent developments, in legislation, case law and Home Office policy. We are members of, and use the sophisticated search engines of the Electronic Immigration Network. Clients can be confident that they can rely on us to help them deal comprehensively and effectively with the immigration authorities at all stages of their case.

So, no matter what your immigration needs, whether you are applying for a Tier 1 visa, seeking to sponsor a visitor to the United Kingdom, a student applying to a study in the UK, an employer seeking to employ a foreign national, or someone seeking international protection from persecution, we can help you.

Immigration work can be carried out on a fixed fee basis and we can arrange translation services. Those seeking asylum or who have been granted refugee status, who are eligible for Legal Aid, may be assisted under the Scottish Legal Aid scheme, either free of charge or with a small contribution, depending on income, assets and dependant obligations.
