As the UK’s post Brexit plan continues to unfold, major changes to UK immigration laws will take effect from 1 January 2021, which will affect individuals and organisations alike.
Freedom and movement between the UK and the EU will end and a new Points Based System will be introduced.
Whether you are an individual or an organisation, we can help you to navigate the complexities of the UK immigration system.
We have extensive experience handling UK immigration applications including:
- work permissions,
- employers' duties and compliance under the Points-Based System,
- Tier 1 (Investor) visas
- advising individuals and their families on personal matters.
You’ll receive practical advice clearly setting out the immigration journey from the initial visa application to permanent residency and acquiring British Citizenship. We achieve exceptional results for our clients through our extensive contacts throughout the Immigration Authorities in the UK and with the British Diplomatic Posts around the world.
For high-net-worth individuals we can tailor and enhance our service through our contacts with international tax advisers and wealth managers to fully maximise the benefits of the UK's tax regime.
We have a successful track record of appealing Home Office decisions, especially in relation to Tier 1 (Investor) and (Entrepreneur), Tier 2 and Tier 4 of the Points Based System but also in other personal immigration cases.
We provide regular immigration training for in house lawyers, HR and other immigrations lawyers. We are also immigration experts for Lexis Nexis PSL immigration service (a global professional information solutions provider) and are recognised in the UK legal directories for our immigration advice.
We provide our clients with a full and integrated service, working closely with other disciplines within the firm such as the international tax, corporate, employment and private client teams.
