Anthony Coyle

A mixed practice including personal injury, housing and property law, asylum and immigration law, TOLATA matters and licensing law.

Anthony Coyle has a mixed practice, including:

  • Personal injury – including regular fast-track and small-claim trials, criminal injuries cases and stage 3 MOJ hearings.
  • Housing – predominantly representing tenants in defending eviction and anti-social behaviour applications in addition to claims for disrepair against local authorities.
  • Asylum – including providing advice and representation for appellants at Immigration Tribunal hearings. He also provides pro bono advice and representation for the Phoenix Project, a registered charity assisting destitute asylum seekers in Hull.
  • Licensing

Significant Cases

  • SA v Secretary of State for the Home Department, Immigration and Asylum Chamber [June 2017] – An appeal in Manchester against a Home Office decision to refuse the appellant’s protection claim. The appellant was successful in arguing that her refusal of an arranged marriage would place her and her daughter at risk of violence if returned to Iraq, contrary to Articles 3 and 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights. The appellant and her daughter were given indefinite leave to remain in the UK.
  • CH, MV, SC and BC v Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council [2018] – A series of disrepair cases at Barnsley County Court in which the local authority argued that condensation was not caused by structural defects in the tenants’ homes but by the tenants’ lifestyles. Breaches of Section 11 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 were established at trial in each case, and compensation paid to the tenants for damage to their own possessions.

What might influence the timescales of the services Anthony offers?

Anthony would normally expect to arrange a preliminary conference with your client within 7 days of first contact from you. After that, despite our best intentions, we can’t always control timescales or the amount of time we spend on a case. These can be affected by factors such as urgency; complexity; your own (or your client’s) availability; Anthony’s availability and that of any third parties; the volume of documents he needs to review or must request; and the court’s availability.
