Profile submitted by Colin Yeo

Practice Areas

Well known in the immigration sector for his very widely read Free Movement immigration law website, Colin Yeo's practice covers the full range of immigration law. He is equally at ease with personal, family or business immigration issues, EU free movement cases, asylum cases and nationality law questions. He regularly trains other immigration lawyers, has contributed to a number of publications and practitioner texts and is often approached for immigration law commentary in the media. Strategic in his approach, he switches easily between campaigning work and quiet, sensitive handling of difficult cases.
