Appeal & Judicial Review
Pre–Action Protocol – Judicial Review
Before you launch a Judicial Review, you must follow the Pre-Action Protocol and send a Letter before Claim.
This should invite the Home Office to correct their error in any decision they have made. When you are looking at appealing a decision on a Points-Based-System, a Judicial review is often the only route available. It must set out the grounds you are challenging the decision and the date of the decision. Our team of expert immigration solicitors can advise and even draft such a letter for you.
Civil Penalty Notice
Civil Penalty Notices are issued by the Home Office if they find you have been employing illegal workers. An illegal worker is any worker employed by you who is from outside the EEA and do not have formal permission to work.
Due to the level of fines that can be handed down, a small business can face insolvency if they are found to have employed illegal workers. However, a Civil Penalty Notice is not final, and our expert team can help you appeal and even negotiate with the Home Office to lower the level of fine imposed.

The letter before claim will go to the Home Office’s Judicial Review Unit.
The Home Office may fine you up to £20,000 per illegal worker. Therefore, if you had 10 illegal workers, the fine could be up to £200,000. Additionally, you may lose the right to employ migrant workers and suffer reputational damage.
