How We Can Help You
Recruiting From Overseas
Over recent years, immigration law has become far stricter when it comes to recruiting from overseas. At the same time, the penalties for businesses that break immigration law have become more severe.
Therefore, if your business wishes to recruit talent from abroad, it is imperative that you seek expert legal advice. Our solicitors can help your business remain compliant to immigration law and support you in any applications you need to make, saving time, money and hassle.
Investing or Starting a Business in the UK
The UK presents a huge opportunity for people overseas who wish to launch a business or invest in an existing one. However, the laws around doing so are complex, so it is often unclear what legal steps you need to take.
Our immigration solicitors can advise you on what requirements you need to meet, as well as guide you through the application process for any visas you require, allowing you to focus on other business priorities.
Resolving Immigration Issues
Following the UK’s exit from Europe, there is significant confusion around the future of many migrant workers. If your business has employees from overseas, it is important you have a clear understanding of any immigration issues that may arise and plan accordingly.
Our team can help you identify any immigration issues you may be facing and put a legal strategy in place to resolve them where possible and protect your business.
