Immigration

Immigration law and visa requirements are complex and ever-changing, particularly in the wake of the UK’s departure from the EU

It can be challenging, confusing and sometimes frustrating for businesses to stay on top of what is required and allowed when it comes to working with and employing foreign nationals. We manage the process from start to finish, taking the pressure off and ensuring a smooth transition and successful outcome for businesses and individuals alike.

Drawing talent from around the world is particularly attractive to the media, technology and creative industries and our dedicated Immigration team is on top of its game when it comes to handling the – often complicated – legal and commercial challenges that this brings.

Working closely with our Employment team and drawing on the expertise of our sector specialists, our immigration lawyers work hard to provide an efficient service for businesses hiring and retaining international talent. We give bespoke, straight-forward advice to clients across multiple industries, tailoring our guidance according to individual commercial objectives.

Our services include: advising businesses on applying for and maintaining a sponsor licence to enable them to employ foreign employees; advising businesses on individual skilled worker applications; advising on skilled worker extension and indefinite leave to remain applications; and advising individuals on naturalising as British once they have obtained indefinite leave to remain. We also provide advice and training on carrying out the right to work checks; assisting our clients as they follow the necessary steps to ensure they are not fined for illegally employing foreign workers.
