Continued Success for OTS Solicitors in the Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession 2021 Law Directory

Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession 2021 Law Directory

To say that the partners at OTS Solicitors were delighted by their continued success and recognition in Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession 2021 is an understatement. After all, the release of the 2021 Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession directory followed shortly after the firm’s success in the 2021 Legal 500 directory so it was a ‘good news month’. It is always great when hard work and excellent client service is recognised in industry leading directories that are trusted by clients for their independent rankings and information.

OTS Solicitors and Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession 2021 

OTS Solicitors have moved up in the rankings in Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession 2021 for personal immigration law. It is great that the immigration team has been recognised in a leading law directory for all its hard work over the last twelve months. It has been a very busy year for the personal immigration law specialists because:

  • Of the build-up in demand for advice on pre-settled status and settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme by EU nationals living in the UK and concerned about their status after the end of free movement and the end of the transition period on the 31 December 2020. The increase in requests for help from worried EU citizens and their UK employers led to our setting up a same day settled status service
  • An increase in enquiries by EU nationals on applying for British citizenship because of Brexit 
  • Calls about visa applications and extension applications affected by travel restrictions and Covid-19 
  • EU and non-EEA citizens concerned about how the new UK points based immigration system (to be introduced in January 2021) will impact on them and their plans to move to the UK in 2021
  • Enquiries by those with Hong Kong BN (O) status about the eligibility criteria for the new Hong Kong visa.


What does Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession say about OTS Solicitors?

The 2021 edition of Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession describes the immigration team at OTS Solicitors as a:     

Sought-after immigration team with a focus on human rights and personal immigration issues. Handles a plethora of sophisticated matters from citizenship deprivation cases to indefinite leave to remain applications. Represents a range of individuals, from students to spouses and families’.


In the 2021 directory one client describes OTS Solicitors as

‘They are professional but can explain everything in a simple and easy-to-understand way’.


Another personal immigration client acknowledged the immigration team’s ‘kindness’, saying that our immigration solicitors ‘understood the sensitivity and complexity of my case’.


Managing partner, Oshin Shahiean is noted as a key contact.


What does 2021 hold for OTS Solicitors? 

The ambitions for 2021 include looking to the family team and the landlord tenant and commercial property teams being ranked in the two leading law directories. The firm recognises that will happen through excellent client feedback combined with continued hard work.


Managing partner, Oshin Shahiean, says:

‘We are all delighted by our inclusion in both Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession and Legal 500 2021. It has been a tough year but made that much easier by the adaptability of all our solicitors and support staff and the appreciation shown by our clients in their reviews about the help and support they have received from our dedicated teams of lawyers’. 


Some of OTS Solicitors recent reviews include:

Application for a fiancé visa 

My fiancé and I have been planning to apply for a fiancé visa in the UK for the longest time. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we became less confident in how to go about with our visa application. Thankfully, we found Nollienne at OTS Solicitors. She did an amazing job at providing us more information about the process and even gave advice we wouldn't have gotten anywhere else had we not requested for assistance. When I got confused with some technicalities, she was patient and more than happy to help. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her. Within a matter of 2 months, we completed the requirements. Two weeks after submitting my application, I received my visa! We would definitely recommend Nollienne and OTS Solicitors to anyone applying for a visa. We're certain we'll stay in contact with her in the future.

We can't thank you enough, Nollienne! We wish you and the whole organisation the best’.

Application for a student visa 

‘I am a former client and I believe my lawyer, Hans Sok Appadu, did a fantastic job with helping me acquire my visa in a timely manner, a feat which I deemed to be impossible considering the pandemic. From the bottom of my heart I am so grateful for his services and for OTS solicitors’.


British Citizenship application  

A big thank you goes out to OTS solicitors and Nollienne Alparaque in particular for helping me work on my British Citizenship application. She has professionally guided me through every step of the application process and was in every way pleasant to deal with. Communication was excellent and E-mails were answered promptly and very thoughtfully. I honestly had the feeling that Nollienne put her whole energy in my case, so much so that it felt like I was the only person she was representing at the time, which is exactly what one wants in legal proceedings.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending OTS or Nollienne to anybody who is in need of a solicitor’.
