Bespoke solutions to support global mobility.
In today’s world in which people and their business affairs are increasingly international, immigration plays a critical role. However, the legal framework governing global mobility is constantly changing and, with Brexit adding another layer of complexity, it is becoming an ever more challenging field for individuals and organisations to navigate.
Whether you are a wealthy individual looking to move with your family, an entrepreneur choosing to expand your business, or an established organisation transferring employees from overseas, you need expert legal advisers who can provide creative, strategic guidance to make this process as smooth as possible.
Our Immigration team offers a personal and tailored service to private clients and businesses. We invest time in gaining a full understanding of your unique circumstances and priorities, which allows us to determine the route which best fits your requirements. We can then guide you practically and pragmatically through the immigration process, also advising on any relevant tax planning implications.
Immigration services for individuals
For high net worth individuals and their families making the decision to relocate, solutions may involve the Innovator, Start-up or Investment visa routes, student or working visas, or an application on the basis of family relationships. If you have already lived in the UK for a time, our team can also advise on applications for permanent residence, indefinite leave to remain and citizenship.
We also provide innovative advice to businesses looking to recruit nationals from abroad or to transfer employees to the UK from an overseas office. This may include obtaining and managing a sponsorship licence for an employer, submitting applications for Tier 2 visas for sponsored employees under the points based system, arranging Tier 5 visas for temporary workers, or obtaining sole representative visas for companies sending their first employee to the UK to grow the business.
For both businesses and individuals, the uncertainty of Brexit will cause disruption and anxiety. For businesses employing people from the EU or EU nationals running businesses in the UK, change is likely as a result of Brexit. Immigration laws around Brexit are yet to be finalised but early planning with our team can ensure you have a plan to prepare for the impact of Brexit. For individuals, our team can support you and any dependants in applying for permanent residency in the UK.
