Leading Court of Appeal case successful!
We are pleased to announce that we have been successful in the lead case of HK, at the Court of Appeal. By a unanimous decision by the Court of Appeal bench, our client’s appeal was allowed and permission was granted for judicial review for the section 10 decisions. The principle in R (Kiarie and Byndloss) v Secretary of State for the Home Department  UKSC 42 has been broadened.
What this means is that we were able to show that if you have received a Section 10 removal notice in a particular period (for various reasons, for example ETS TOEIC) then the standard out of country right of appeal is not an adequate remedy. The Court of Appeal has also held that in the case, a certification of a human rights claim should be quashed, and the person should be allowed to appeal from within the United Kingdom.
It is also a passing remark, that those whose appeals have been allowed from outside the UK should immediately contact us, so we can ensure that you are returned to the UK.

Farani Taylor Solicitors have previously represented Salman Butt – the ex-captain of Pakistan’s International Cricket Team.
In February 2011, the International Cricketing Council banned Salman from the sport for 10 years (suspended for 5) for offences contravening their Anti-Corruption Code.
Farani Taylor Solicitors represented Salman in his appeal against the ICC’s ban, and travelled to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland for his hearing.
Salman’s appeal was heard before a panel of senior Judges who were all specialists in Sports Law. Despite powerful legal arguments and an emotional speech by Salman, the panel declined to reduce his ban.
Despite the outcome, Salman was both satisfied and impressed with the services offered by the firm.
In a statement, Salman said, “Farani Taylor Solicitors provided an expert service and I always felt that I was in excellent, capable hands. My lawyers were incredibly supportive, and even though I did not get the desired result, I knew that my legal team were with me one hundred per cent of the way”.
