Trafficking in human beings is considered as a form of modern day slavery and demeans the value of human life.
We have a great deal of experience in helping people who are brought into the UK by human traffickers with a promise of a job or are forced to work for little or no pay in jobs that they are unable to leave. A person can be trafficked to do lots of things, eg to work in people’s homes, in manual jobs such as construction and farming, or into prostitution.
Our immigration department acted in one of the leading High Court cases on human trafficking, SF v SSHD, in which we successfully overturned a determination that our client had not been a victim of human trafficking.
The complexity of human trafficking cases can often result in the victim being involved in a number of different legal processes which continue to take place at the same time as the immigration matter. We have achieved positive outcomes for victims of human trafficking cases in a number of landmark human trafficking cases and work in conjunction with our crime, family and public law departments to best protect our client’s interests and achieve the best possible outcomes.
If you feel that you are a victim of human trafficking and are need help with your immigration status, please contact us as we may be able to assist you. In some Trafficking cases, we are able to help clients on legal aid, which means that some or all the cost related to the Trafficking case could be met by public funds.
