Ben Caswell specialises in coronial and immigration law.

“I am delighted with the outcome and with the way Mr Caswell handled my case”

Immigration Law

Ben has been a specialist in all aspects of immigration law since 2000. He advises and assists clients in all areas including judicial review, asylum and human rights, entry clearance, appeals against refusal of leave to remain, family reunion and migration, visa applications and appeals, European Union/ Economic Area rights and appeals, points based system applications and appeals, administrative removal and deportation, and citizenship applications and revocation appeal hearing.

Appeals by employers against civil penalty notices levied for alleged employment of workers without immigration status.

“From the first phone call I felt reassured that Mr Caswell was very knowledgeable about my appeal. He was also always very approachable and friendly. A first-class service.”

Ben is happy to and regularly receives instructions on a direct access basis, and is thus experienced in drafting applications and appeal notices.

Notable cases

  • Habte Teckle v SSHD – 2011 Court of Appeal C5/2011/1166. Asylum claim concerning risk of return to Eritrea.
  • Parkin v HM Coroner – 2005 EWHC 660. Representing a school in 2008 at a 3-month coroner’s inquest involving the fatality of a pupil.
