A satisfied client


Daniaal’s background in the field of immigration commenced in personal and family immigration matters. This includes contentious and non-contentious immigration matters.

Thorough and attention to detail:

  • Clear advice – providing advice to employers and employees relating to processes and immigration requirements to ensure compliance and preventing an adverse immigration history.
  • Daniaal has assisted numerous applicants throughout the endorsement process and visa application stage of the Global Talent visa. This includes applicants who are recognised as leaders in their field of practice. Daniaal provides thorough advice ensuring applicants collate evidence to meet the requirements for an endorsement and can apply for a visa under the Global Talent visa route.
  • Representing a client in submitting a naturalisation application to satisfy the good character requirement after a series of offences. Daniaal provided key advice regarding the good character requirement and prepared representations to the Home Office highlighting the positive strides the client had taken in his life in the UK with charitable work. Daniaal’s attention to detail enabled him to address key points and references to the Home Office guidance resulting in the client’s application for naturalisation being granted.

Empathetic and approachable:

  • Daniaal’s background involved working on matters ranging from dealing with personal and family matters. This includes assisting vulnerable individuals such as asylum seekers, and victims of domestic violence. He therefore takes great pride in dealing with clients with empathy and approachability.


"I reached out to Daniaal for assistance in switching to a Global Talent Visa and subsequently transitioning to Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR). I was very impressed with his efficiency and professionalism. He provided invaluable guidance and support throughout the process, everything was done promptly and accurately. I would highly recommend Daniaal to anyone who needs help or advice in the field of work migration."
