Alamin Rahman

Alamin Rahman joined BHD Solicitors in 2020 having trained and qualified at a Legal 500 [Band 1] Human Rights and Civil Liberties firm based in London. There he achieved his Level 2 Senior Caseworker’s accreditation under the Law Society’s Level IAAS Scheme and continues to hold this.

Hailing from a background in customer services, he is passionate about helping clients by listening to their issues, identifying their problems and offering legal solutions. Alamin has a reputation for going the extra mile and his easy-going nature make him approachable to clients which then enables a rapport to be built up quickly.

Alamin also takes pride in his ability to critically analyse a client’s available options, even in the tightest of circumstances, and will purposefully provide a bespoke cost-benefit style approach to the available options; which in his experience leaves the client in a position to make an informed decision about their desired course.

Alamin has extensive knowledge of the wide spectrum of immigration, his expertise include, Entry Clearance Applications; Leave to Remain (Article 3 & 8 including Appendix FM); Indefinite Leave to Remain (including exceptional cases outside of the immigration rules); Complex Deportation; Asylum (initial and appeal stage); Bail and Appeals before the First Tier Tribunal and the Upper Tribunal.

He also has a wealth of experience in successfully bringing Judicial Review proceedings against the Home Office and Immigration Tribunals where for instance:

  • a decision by the Home Office does not carry with it a right of appeal or administrative review;
  • the Home Office unlawfully detains a person in immigration detention;
  • the Home Office delays making a decision on an immigration matter for an unreasonable period of time;
  • the First tier Tribunal unreasonably does not grant a bail application; or
  • the Upper Tribunal does not grant an appellant permission to appeal to the Upper Tribunal.

This has resulted in clients being awarded a number of remedies, often more than one at once including:

  • preventing removal directions/charter flights;
  • securing release from immigration detention and £thousands in compensation;
  • recovery of legal costs from the Home Office (client gets all or most of their legal costs refunded);
  • securing fresh decisions from the Home Office;
  • lifting no recourse to public funds on BRP cards;
  • securing in-country appeal rights;
  • securing an appeal right from the Home Office where it was not initially granted, etc.

SPECIALIST APPELLATE COURT LITIGATION

Alamin has assisted clients with a number of complex Court of Appeal litigation matters which include Statutory Appeals and Judicial Review appeals and has worked on cases have which have changed how the law works. These cases include the following:

  • Akpinar v SSHD [2014] EWCA Civ 937;
  • DM (Zimbabwe) v SSHD [2015] EWCA Civ 1288;
  • NEA (Nigeria) v SSHD [2017] EWCA Civ 239.

HOBBIES

Outside of work, Alamin takes a keen interest in keeping up to date with international affairs and enjoys spending time with family and friends. He also takes an interest in watching sports from across the spectrum, including football, cricket and snooker. Alamin would consider himself to be a bit of a chess and coffee enthusiast.
