UK Immigration Solicitors


Hayat & Co. was established in 1998, with the wish and intention to provide all members of the public with accurate, helpful and the necessary legal advice to safeguard, preserve and protect their individual rights.

At Hayat & Co. we endeavour to ensure that, on each and every occcasion, every client receives reliable , up-to-date and specialist legal advice, which they can confidently act on.

That every client has the full assurance, that their solicitor is  fully and properly aware of all the circumstances surrounding their case before giving any advice. Hayat & Co. ensure that at all times, they have the client’s best interests in mind when providing advice or assistance.

Hayat & Co. offers every client an absolute commitment and promise to deal with their case with the utmost level of professionalism, integrity, skill and care, as should be reasonably expected from a professional legal representative entrusted with their personal and important matter.

At Hayat & Co. we are fully aware, and recognise the need to provide clients with affordable yet highly skilled legal services.

Our approach is to handle a client’s matter  with as much importance, as we would our very own. Fees are, and will always remain,  a secondary consideration at Hayat & Co’s in our pursuit of achieving fairness and justice for all our clients.

The principal solicitor at Hayat & Co. is Mr Amar Hayat who has over 20 years  specialist experience in various areas of law, predominately and extensively  Human Rights law, inclduing all aspects of Immigration & British Nationality Law. Mr Hayat will personally accept  initial instructions from each and every client and go so far as challenging these without hesistation, before the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, where circumstances require, or justify it. Hayat & Co. provide countless pro bono assistance in certain cases, expending a great deal of time and energy in the process, where required. The amount over the years is unquantifable, and considerable.

Since inception Hayat & Co. has been considered by many organsisations  particularly numerous  charitable organisations such as the  Refugee Council  (unaccompanied minors unit), Migrant Helpline,  numerous Church and religious bodies, various homeless organisations, domestic abuse bodies, inclduing at times by departments of the Immigration Service, as being a reputable and  diligent firm, which serves to protect everyone interests in a balanced yet just and honest way.

As a result, these organisations have  over the years entrusted and referred us vulnerable or destitute clients in need of urgent and immediate help. Very often, we have assisted these clients without funding or renumeration,  and where necesasry sought urgent relief before the Courts at odd hours of the night, again without hesitation.

At Hayat & Co.we have statistically enjoyed unparalleled success since 1998, based on a near perfect success record in the field of Human Rights and Immigration law. This we believe is based on our sincere and genuine concern for those most vulnerable and in  need justice and protection.

Hayat & Co.’s efforts and vigilance within Human Rights and Immigration Law has directly and indirectly caused various  changes in practise and procedure, something that we are both  humbled by, yet proud of.

Hayat & Co. welcomes instructions in the most challenging and complex of cases where others may not be willing to assist due to cost or other concerns, and particularly where there is a danger that a grave injustice might occur.

Hayat & Co.’s primary concern and overwhelming desire is to see the law develop in a fair, equal, and progressive way for everyone, no matter what. Unlike many, we do  not seek to blame or judge individuals for their circumstanes or predicaments, rather, we seek to raise them.

Human Rights, Immigration law and related procedures  have evolved and progressed considerably since 1998. Some could argue that prior to 2000 it was an area of law and practice which was largely neglected, and therefore, simply put,  ignored. Around this time, many practitioners, as  is well documented,  primarily sought financial gain (in our view due to poor and ineffective regulatory monitoring) rather than   the need to treat clients professionally,  or ethically let alone correctly within the law.

Regrettably, such failings were identified  far too late and not before countless individuals, who  often and in some cases remain unaware they they have suffered  poor levels of service, and in many cases  catastrophic and irreversible consequences for them, and their families. It is these  individuals Hayat & Co. is keen to identify and represent in order to crrect what should have occured. Such individuals, often, do not fully or properly appreciate that they were victims. Hayat & Co. encourages individuals, to not hesitate  in seeking  reliable and specialist advice and  where necessary a qualifed and skilled reassessment of their case.

Hayat and Co.  have extensive experience in  almost every type of Human Rights, Immigration, Asylum and Nationality case including at all levels of court proceedings  from First-Tier Tribunals to the European Court of Human Rights. We have acted in countless novel legal cases. We are able to and have represented clients from around the world and have access to professional interpreters in any language.
