We make UK citizenship law simple

Early in his career, Philip trained with the UK Home Office in their Nationality Directorate, working in the front-line Immigration Casework team. After leaving the Home Office in 1992, he set up his own UK visa and nationality consultancy.

He was the founding partner of both 1st Contact visas, which focused on young working holidaymakers in the UK and their UK Immigration requirements, and Philip Gamble & Partners, which focused largely on more complex immigration cases and British nationality applications.

He is now widely recognised as the world's leading authority in UK immigration and British nationality law and the effects of decolonisation within the former British Empire and its relationship to British citizenship.

Philip has represented the industry as a whole with the Home Office After-Entry Committee and Advisory Committee of the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner. He has assisted the Home Office with the formulation of their Policy Guidance and has been actively involved in individual cases that have resulted in changes in the law.

Philip presents regular British nationality seminars in East and Southern Africa. These seminars are free to attend and provide insights into how British nationality claims can arise.
