About

Charles began his immigration career in the mid-1990’s when he joined an independent organisation in London offering legal advice and general representation to asylum seekers and refugees. In this capacity he presented in excess of 1,000 appeals before the Immigration Tribunal, with a success rate considerably higher than the sector average. He also managed a team of appeals advocates.

Charles subsequently co-founded a niche immigration and employment law firm, where he represented a broad range of private and corporate clients, including a number of ‘M4 corridor’ IT and technology companies, professional sports clubs and education providers. Charles also developed a broader litigation practice, successfully pursuing a number of High Court and Court of Appeal cases.

In 2009 Charles established a private and business immigration department at a Central London commercial firm, where he was made Partner. He continued to develop his corporate and private client practice, with a particular focus on high-net worth individuals under the Tier 1  Investor and Entrepreneur categories of the Immigration Rules. Charles also maintained a small, high-profile political asylum practice in which he represented, amongst others: government ministers, diplomats, high-ranking military officers and leading academics. Charles continued to develop his appeal and litigation work alongside his corporate practice, which focused on small to medium sized enterprises across a wide range of sectors, such as information technology, property, manufacturing, software design and public relations.

In 2013 Charles joined an international Corporate Immigration law firm where he managed their UK Private Client (General) Team before establishing the Private Client (Litigation) Team.

In 2018 Charles joined a Central London law firm as a Partner where he oversaw the development of an Immigration department that had been acquired through a commercial merger with another firm.

Charles is currently leveraging his considerable experience as a consultant to deliver representation in all aspects of Business and Private Immigration law.
