Combining legal expertise with commercial pragmatism, we help you manage immigration risks.

Immigration & Mobility

We understand that navigating the UK immigration system can be a complex, costly and stressful process, for businesses and individuals alike. We specialise in making this journey as straightforward as possible.

Led by Partner and Head of Immigration, Matt Lynch, we have experience in supporting businesses ranging from start-ups to some of the world’s biggest organisations in managing their immigration programmes.  Our team has worked with employers from a variety of industries, whether that be IT, consulting, oil and gas, manufacturing, or the education sector.

For employers… we work with employers to implement cost effective immigration strategies to minimise the risk of non-compliance whilst ensuring you can get the people you need into the roles you need them to do as quickly as possible.

We aim to build long term partnerships with our clients and will invest time to understand your business and its needs.  This allows us to adopt a proactive approach in identifying opportunities and challenges employers may face to ensure you have the tools you need to navigate changes as they arise, with as little possible disruption to maintaining business as usual.

For your people… employee experience is key, with immigration support often being one of the first interactions your new hires will have with the business.  We offer a  human touch by using uncomplicated and down-to-earth language to support your employees through each stage of the process.

For individuals… not only do we support businesses with their immigration needs but also specialise in personal visa categories, whether this be for existing corporate clients where an employee’s visa support is not company funded or individuals who simply need a specialist advisor who cares about their needs.
