OTS Solicitors is an internationally recognised law firm, based in the City of London. A modern, progressive firm, we are results-focused and have a reputation as the leading personal and business immigration law firm in London.

Our solicitors are dedicated to always maintaining two core principles:

1. Providing clear, comprehensive legal advice; and
2. Offering personalised service of the highest quality to our clients

We provide clients with an exceptional level of legal expertise, a genuine service that is tailored to your business and/or personal needs, at a cost-effective price.

“Thank you OTS for your help with my immigration case. Your professionalism and thorough approach made the process easier and most importantly successful. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone looking for help in this field”.

“Teni and the rest of the team are very helpful and reliable. The assistance of this firm is 5 star, wherein every bit of concern and details are well taken care of. Nothing is taken for granted and nothing is ignored”.

Our team can also advise on employment, corporate and commercial law and civil litigation matters.

Why us?

Authoritative: We do not simply advise on immigration law; we actively shape it. Having established a reputation for creativity, professionalism, and being forward-thinking in our work, OTS Solicitors has become a preferred UK immigration solicitors firm. And having made frequent contributions on immigration matters, we are an authority for many TV, radio and newspaper organisations. Our immigration solicitors have made frequent appearances on BBC One, BBC News, TalkRadio, Share Radio, Premier Radio, The Wall Street Journal, i-ASiA Magazine, The American Magazine, and we are currently working with documentary makers for Sky1 and Channel 4. In addition, our heads of department have been recommended in the Legal 500 directory and are accredited by the Law Society as trusted specialists in immigration law.

Our team: We invest heavily in attracting the sharpest minds to work for our firm. Former immigration judge, Paul Gulbenkian is one of the country’s foremost figures in immigration law, advising high-net-worth individuals and international figures in politics, the arts and entertainment, on immigration matters. Our managing partner, Teni Shahiean has been ranked in the Legal 500 for her work as an immigration solicitor and has been highly accredited by the Law Society for her expertise. We have also recently gained Dr Harry Hagopian as a Consultant Public International Lawyer. Harry has two decades of experience as a political advisor on matters relating to Brexit, EU, and the Middle East. He has been published extensively on this and other topics.

Specialisation: OTS Solicitors is London's leading immigration law, employment law, corporate law and litigation law firm. Concentrating on these core areas has enabled us to maintain in-depth expertise in each area of legal practice. Specialisation also grants us the opportunity to get to know our clients on a deeper level and anticipate their legal and business needs.

Results: Over 99% of applications, such as for Permanent residency that we have submitted on behalf of clients to UK Visa and immigration are successful. Our high success rates also relate to submissions for Tier 1 Entrepreneur and Investor Visas, Indefinite Leave to Remain, Human Rights and Asylum, Tier 2 visa applications and family visas. Our EU Permanent Resident Card applications are highly successful, despite recent reports of up to 28% being rejected by the Home Office for certain individuals. Our specialisation and expertise allows us to provide creative solutions to our clients’ immigration problems, especially when they fall outside of the Immigration Rules.

Relationships: We partner closely with our business law immigration clients, supporting them not only with their application but with hiring talent, investing funds and complying with the duties and responsibilities of a Sponsor Licence. For example, we recently helped an international bank’s London branch to obtain a Sponsor Licence to enable recruitment of talent from an international office. We maintain close contact with this client, ensuring they are kept up to date with changes that could affect their compliance and advising them on further recruitment strategies. Our expertise in commercial and employment law allows us to provide a seamless service to our business immigration law clients, saving them considerable time and money.

In-depth knowledge: Our team thrives on solving complex immigration law issues. We have been involved in many challenging Judicial Review and appeal cases involving Human Rights issues. This provides our clients with the security of knowing that we can advise and represent them from the beginning of their matter to the end.

Connections: Our partners have developed robust connections with top barristers, wealth managers, financial advisors and business coaches. These relationships help us support our clients, many of whom have few contacts in the UK, by introducing them to advisors who can assist with investing funds, growing their business and getting the legal results they desire. In addition to our connections in the UK, we have associates throughout the Middle East, China, America, Australia and South East Asia.

Business focused: Our clients enjoy the benefit of a seamless legal service when they instruct us on business immigration matters. Our registered European lawyer, Dr Lusine Navasardyan, has a wealth of expertise in commercial law and business immigration and in tandem with her Supervisor Najma Ali and the partners is a key driver of improving immigration law in the UK. We understand business and are committed to partnering with you long-term to help you achieve your commercial ambitions.

Personal: We believe our business begins and ends with our clients. Our team is committed to providing the same exceptional service to everyone who contacts us, whether they are a multi-national company or an individual seeking entry into the UK. Having this attitude provides our clients with confidence that their personal and/or commercial legal matters are in the hands of a firm that addresses their unique needs and challenges rather than simply providing one-size-fits all immigration law advice.

Our Story: After spending many years gaining experience and expertise in large London legal firms, founders Teni Shahiean and Oshin Shahiean set up OTS Solicitors in 2014. Alongside former immigration judge, Paul Gulbenkian they have successfully established a boutique law firm whose values of compliance, client service and legal excellence are well and truly entrenched.

Through our global connections, we can provide both private client and commercial service in jurisdictions such as Australia, Armenia, Russia, Romania, Ukraine, North Africa, Middle East and China.

With members trained in Lexcel Practice Management Standards and Client Care, OTS Solicitors has tailored these standards, so they impact every corner of our operation. This ensures our clients receive optimal service, satisfaction and value for money.

Teni, Oshin and Paul have worked together for many years. This allows them to draw on each other's expertise when advising on matters providing exceptional, personalised service to every one of the firm's clients, no matter what their size or budget.

Our Place in the Community: All our solicitors are committed to providing pro bono legal advice, services and advocacy within the wider community.

We used OTS Solicitors for our UK Spouse Visa Application as we wanted our first application to go through without any issues. Our case was assigned to Saida Ahmed, and she handled it very effectively and was able to put our application together smoothly in a short period of time. Through out the process her support relieved a lot of stress for us and we were able to get a successful application done.We are extremely happy with her services and would strongly recommend her and the firm to anyone looking for expert legal advice.

I was in a very difficult position and thought there was no way out. Oshin and Hans helped me tremendously in getting where I wanted to be. Their strategy was well thought out and they were always available to talk. Very caring I might add. A vast difference from the previous solicitors I used. I would absolutely use them again and recommend them to anyone looking to ensure their immigration case is handled correctly.

OTS Solicitors were the answer to getting British Citizenship for myself and my 2 siblings through our Mother. This was not a straightforward case as she was actually born in Zimbabwe (her mother was British) and we were born in South Africa. However, due to her being naturalised before a certain date meant we could technically claim citizenship through her - we just didn't know how! I spent literal years trying to get this right, including several trips to the UK to speak to people at Home Office. OTS were able to get it done in a few months. A very big thank you to Jordana and Malbora who were very patient and very helpful and in the end got us full citizenship. I must also thank Smit, who met me on a tour (we were both on holiday) and was willing to chat about my quest into trying to get citizenship - one of the best meetings by chance ever.

My son is a British national and OTS Solicitors assisted me in making an application for further leave to remain. I am very satisfied with their professional advice and much needed support. I was worried about my situation but now I am happy that my case was handled really well. They are respectful, caring, friendly and patient. I would recommend anyone to seek assistance from OTS Solicitors.

My husbands student visa extension application was refused and we were so confused on what to do. So I went on google in search of a good solicitor. I choose Ots Solicitors because of the positive reviews they had online. I spoke to Hans( solicitor) and he went through our refusal letter. He helped us with our administrative review. He was positive all the way. We have just received a decision from the home office and it is good news. Our Visa extension application was granted. Thanks Hans for your prompt help. We are grateful.

We used OTS for a spousal visa application. We wanted the reassurance of getting it right the first time, so chose to use OTS. Saida was really helpful in helping organise our application, and then checking in with us to see how we were getting on. For those wanting help with their applications (and reassurance that you haven't missed anything) then we would recommend.

I googled and found OTS and referred my friend there. but it was really bad experience. They charging quite high. one young girl was advising my friend who is must be a trainee or doing internship. she does'nt even know the basic what my friend already knows. when questioned by my friend, she google and try to find answer. at the end my friend didn't get any information what he needs. everything she answered was assumption not clear answer or can't say whats is the related law. so, total waste of money. so, ask who the booking the appointment with before book one.

I applied for Spouse Visa for my wife through OTS Solicitors in November. Hans Sok Appadu helped me immensely throughout the application with proper guidelines on how to fill every important part. The complicated procedure was made hassle free and I would greatly recommend to use OTS Solicitors for their reliability, prompt responses and good outcomes. I am happy that with in the timeframe of the Priority Visa Service from Pakistan the visa was successfully granted in 2 months. Excellent Service by OTS Solicitors.

Saida was very reassuring from the very beginning and made us feel completely secure in our decision to appeal the visa rejection. She took care of everything and was extremely approachable and friendly. She ensured our minds were put at ease and reassured us of her confidence in our case.

I am now certain that in the event that anything happens and we are in need of legal help and advice, we can wholly rely on Saida and OTS Solicitors to have our back. Our parents were finally granted their visitor visas and I can absolutely say that this would not have been possible without Saida

A huge thank you to Hans and the OTS Team. Mine was an immigration case to bring my wife to the UK on a Spouse Visa so she could live here with me. Hans provided an excellent and professional service throughout, making each step of the process very easy and stress free. I would 100% recommend OTS Solicitors to anybody dealing with immigration matters.

This is an amazing firm! My case dragged along for ages but throughout the entire process the solicitors at OTS were there for me. They held my hand and guided me throughout the entire process. Hans fought really hard for my claim, sometimes taking it personal and going out of his way to get successful results. I will recommend OTS to anyone looking for help with their immigration matter especially when it is a complex case; these guys turn complex into ABC.

OTS helped me with my permanent residency and naturalisation. They were fantastic. The processes involved are complicated even if you are a "straightforward" case like me, so I don't regret getting their help. It saved me a lot of stress! My case was handled by Hans, who was incredibly flexible and responsive and allowed the process to fit around my work. He also provided me with good advice and support through the process. A big thank you!

BEST EXPERIENCE WITH A POSITIVE OUTCOME! It was a very smooth, professional and lovely experience for us getting OTS Solicitors to represent us for my UK Visitor Visa reapplication. I got denied my UK visitor visa twice and the third time we got OTS Solicitors to help us and I HAVE BEEN GRANTED MY VISA. They wrote a very professional and detailed (intelligent) representation letter and gave us realistic approaches. They were very accommodating and just reliable — they definitely know what they are doing every step of the way.

The person who specifically was assigned to our case, ms. Saida Ahmed, was just brilliant. She's very understanding, accommodating and just smart. Despite the differences in time zones, us being 7 hours ahead, she still managed to work with us closely. She would e-mail and call the Home Office on our behalf and there would always be an update. She's very kind and goo to work with. She'd e-mail us about asking for updates about the outcome and she has thought of many ways of dealing with matters even before they arise.

Any visa or even immigration matters, I would trust only them. We were more than pleased and all thanks to OTS Solicitor's help.
