Experience Profile

Anuf is a Solicitor in our Crime and the Professional Misconduct team at Slater and Gordon Lawyers in Leeds.

She has experience in Immigration law and has a record of successfully submitting applications to the Home Office, advising clients, as well as preparing cases for appeal hearings.

Anuf has advised and defended clients in a wide range of cases involving the Home Office, HMRC, CPS, Trading Standards, Local Council and private prosecutions. She has also represented clients at police station interviews. She has shown time after time that it is key to be provided with robust advice at this stage of any investigation. 

She also acts for police officers facing misconduct and disciplinary investigations.

Anuf has acted for clients in multi-handed criminal investigations with a large page count. For example she represented a client who was involved in a multi-handed human trafficking case. As well as criminal advice, Anuf provided the client who was a foreign national with advice regarding their immigration status in the UK. 

She also has an excellent track record of applications being granted by the Home Office. She has dealt with clients wanting to enter the UK as well as making further applications to remain in the UK and apply for Citizenship. 

Anuf has represented clients at the magistrate’s court, dealing with low level offences as well as more serious matters which have to be dealt with at the Crown court.

She has also received many instructions from privately paying individuals who have previously used her services for immigration matters.

Notable cases

  • Acted for a client who was involved in a group, trafficking women from Europe to work in brothels in the United Kingdom. Handled voluminous page count cases involving multiple defendants from UK and abroad.

  • Acted for client who pleaded guilty to sexual assault on a minor, obtained statements and strong mitigation securing a suspended sentence.

  • Acted for a student charged with robbery. Obtained CCTV and statements from witnesses which confirmed that the client was a mere bystander and had not shown any violence or intention to rob the complainant.

  • Anuf represented a nanny to a celebrity couple. The nanny and her employers were being investigated for tax fraud. This involved lengthy HMRC interviews with the nanny. Anuf successfully demonstrated that the couple had more to gain financially by evading paying tax than her client.

  • Anuf has represented other high profile individuals including members of the royal family.

  • Represented a celebrity in a driving matter and managed to persuade the court to send the matter back to the original court which had passed the sentence in the client's absence. This meant the case was reopened and the outcome was exceptionally beneficial to client.
