October 26, 2020

The Legal 500 Directory 2021 states that Lamb Building possesses a 'formidable immigration team' specialising in appellant and claimant-based judicial review work, asylum, nationality, and EU free movement law. A significant proportion of cases are undertaken for vulnerable clients, and the set 'genuinely cares about their clients'. Whilst the group as a whole is praised, within it Sandra Akinbolu, Bojana Asanovic, Emma Daykin, Eric Fripp and Keelin McCarthy are all included as Leading Juniors. Of Sandra it is said 'She is a fighter and does not give up, good knowledge of law and very helpful to instructing solicitors.'

Bojana is described as 'a highly experienced and fiercely intelligent barrister, who has a very strong reputation in particularly complex cases relating to vulnerable groups.'

Of Emma the Directory states 'There are not many barristers who are as experienced as Emma in dealing with all aspects of immigration (including points based system), asylum and nationality law.'

Eric is praised for 'exceptional analytical skills and his thorough drafting, especially in the area of deportation and asylum.'

Keelin 'is extremely dedicated to her clients, leaving no stone unturned and [is] very thorough in her approach.'

The continued success of our team members reflects the strength in depth of our team and the quality of our clerking support. One comment of our lead Immigration clerk Philip Silverman is that 'he has always been excellent over the years. He is very approachable and understanding. He is always on hand to provide advice and guidance on appropriate counsel and always goes the extra mile when taking instructions late in the day.' We are delighted it is said that 'Lamb Building is respected among firms for its diversity and its friendly approach. They genuinely care about the clients and achieve excellent result acting for the best interests of the clients. We have held a long and friendly relationship with Lamb Building and instruct many of their barristers for the high-class work they produce and the well-respected representation which they provide to our clients.'
