Sponsorship Licence Revocation

Sponsorship Licence Revocation


Following on from a suspension, if the Home Office maintain their decision to revoke your licence this can only be challenged by way of judicial review.


This is a complex legal process involving a formal application with the High Court. The application will be based on whether the Home Office have acted unlawfully when taking the decision to revoke your licence, with procedural impropriety or where the decision is not in accordance with specified policy.


In order to avoid litigation we would engage with the Home Office to resolve this matter through the pre-action protocol procedure. Sponsor licence revocations are normally settled without formal court proceedings being issued.


We understand the detrimental financial impact the revocation of a licence can have on a company and the wider effect it will have on its sponsored migrants. We can therefore advise on making an application for ‘interim relief’ to continue to sponsor your migrants whilst the court proceedings are pending.


If your UK Skilled Worker (formerly known as Tier 2) licence has been revoked with no right to appeal, we can assist by way of Judicial Review. At Duncan Lewis Solicitors, we are experts at challenging the Home Office through Judicial Review. Our team of UK immigration solicitors are highly experienced with making Judicial Review claims against the UK Home Office.
