Along with the benefits that international workforces bring, business immigration can also create complex legal questions for employers. We offer a fully integrated service for clients providing high quality, strategic employment and business immigration advice. Whether you are looking at individual employee mobility or multiple international secondments and intra group transfers, our team can help.
Our strategic immigration advice focuses on your business’s structure and key staff members. We can support you on a range of immigration issues, including obtaining sponsor licences, government audits and ensuring you are compliant with sponsor compliance duties as well as right to work issues.
We have particular expertise with applications for entrepreneurs and start-ups including Tier 1 visa applications, as well as immigration issues that arise in corporate transactions. We can also support you with Tier 2 visa applications for senior and highly specialised professionals, including those involving international transfers and high earners. We also regularly help clients navigate the requirements of the resident labour market test.
Since the UK’s referendum, we have been working with clients on complex Brexit contingency plans. These often span across tax, regulatory, employment and immigration issues. Our Financial Services and Markets team work with us when these issues cross over.
We are dedicated to continually supporting all clients and their employees across a range of sectors including financial services, insurers and investment firms, media, manufacturing, health, leisure and retail.
