I advise on all aspects of UK immigration law and support clients with international immigration and global mobility issues. I am known for my in-depth expertise in this area, ranging from day to day advice to complex compliance matters.
I specialise in business immigration law and act for both employers and senior individuals. I use my experience in dealing with Immigration Rules and Home Office policy to support you with tailored advice.
I have around a decade of experience practising in Immigration Law, including at a highly ranked law firm, where I led their immigration team along with the Managing Partner.
My experience includes advising large multinational companies, SMEs, growth companies (including start-up and scale-up operations) and charities and social ventures. My work involves providing day-to-day ad-hoc advice regarding sponsorship, right to work and immigration applications. I also provide strategic immigration advice and regularly conduct seminars and webinars for clients. For example, in the years leading up to end of the Brexit transition period, my focus was on presenting Brexit-preparedness seminars for both hiring managers and EU employees.
I also provided businesses with strategic solutions in respect of their European staff, to protect and prepare for Brexit and the associated uncertainties.
I regularly advise highly skilled (Global Talent visas) and high net worth (Tier 1 Investor and Innovator Visas) senior individuals on migrating to the UK. My bespoke service for clients encompasses obtaining entry clearance to the UK and supporting them with ongoing advice to ensure a route to settlement. I have advised clients on the accelerated route to settlement and key challenges such as significant absences from the UK.
My experience of providing immigration law support covers a variety of sectors such as telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, retail, technology and research. My areas of focus include:
- Sponsor licence applications (Skilled Worker (Tier 2 General), Intra Company Transfer (Tier 2 ICT))
- Sponsor licence compliance and management
- Immigration-related business restructuring
- Right to Work and prevention of illegal working
- Immigration law training
- Challenging sponsor licence revocation/suspension decisions
- Global Talent, Innovator and start-up visa applications
- Representative of an overseas business visa applications
- Investor visas
I will work with you to develop policies and procedures to ensure ongoing compliance, that work for you and your team.
The client is always centre stage, and I take the time to fully understand their instructions and ensure their objectives are met. Every client is different, and while some require comprehensive support, others may just need ad-hoc advice.
The end of the Brexit transition period, and the inclusion of EU nationals in the standard immigration system has meant clients need to include this as a part of their overall talent strategy. Whether your focus is within the EU or global, I would love to have a quick call with you to discuss how I can support you and your organisation. Please contact me either by phone or email.
