LBC Legal Hour: Philip Trott answers listeners’ immigration questions

Philip Trott, Partner in Bates Wells’ Immigration team, has been featured on Clive Bull’s LBC show as an expert commentator on immigration matters.


Speaking on the programme’s Legal Hour, Philip answered a range of questions raised by Clive’s listeners relating to the Home Office’s EU settled status, indefinite leave to remain and what applicants can do to ensure the authorities process visa applications in a prompt and efficient manner.

Many of the matters raised during the programme are of particular significance in light of the changes to the UK’s immigration system which are set to take place post-Brexit. Philip’s contribution demonstrated the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the immigration status of many individuals, as well as the attendant need to prepare for every eventuality prior to the UK’s departure from the European Union.
