About Seraphus

Seraphus is a specialist solicitors firm based in London, UK. Seraphus is working towards becoming an industry leading provider of asylum, immigration and human rights law. Our priority is always our clients. We put their individual needs first and understand the value of building relationships based on mutual trust and understanding. It is in such a relationship that we bring commitment, commercial awareness and legal focus to our service. We are recognised for our integrity, accuracy, and personalised service. We provide a broad range of essential services to direct you through this complex area of law. This approach has been successful, as Seraphus continues to receive very good feedback from our clients (see our clients' testimonials here) and our regulators. We take our work (and our reputation) very seriously, and this approach has been reflected in successful audits and inspections.
