George Mavrantonis was called to the Bar by Gray’s Inn in 2016; he completed pupillage and subsequently joined Chambers in 2019.
 
George specialises in public law through the sphere of immigration, asylum and nationality law.
Earlier in his career he spent two years at the UK Home Office. He spent one year as a Judicial Review Litigator where he assessed the defensibility of judicial reviews lodged against the Secretary of State. For the next year George appeared as a Presenting Officer concentrating on all human rights and asylum claims, EEA, entry clearance, and deportation.
To date he has appeared in more than 350 such trials, for both the Appellant and the Secretary of State. He has been involved in a number of high profile, public interest and intel cases. He maintains a heavy immigration caseload and comes highly recommended for matters of deception, sham marriages, out-of-country video-link appeals, PBS, criminal deportation and bails, equally for drafting and representation.
In asylum law alone, George has had conduct of claims from more than 40 nationalities worldwide which amongst others have included: witches, royalty, publishers, LGBT+, victims of trafficking, children, draft evaders, and politicians.
 
George has completed marshalling as a pupil at the European Court of Human Rights in 2018. He has been offered a secondment (legal traineeship) to commence in late 2019 in Strasbourg. He also accepts instructions as a member of the Attorney-General’s “Junior Junior” panel scheme as well as the Secretary of State. He can accept instructions by members of the public where appropriate, as well as solicitors.
