We recognise that a business’ marketplace is global and that the movement of people across the world is critical to their growth and success. We have decades of experience in assisting all businesses, from multinational corporations to start-ups, with recruiting or transferring their employees from across the world.

Our immigration lawyers pride themselves on their ability to provide swift, jargon-free and practical advice to senior management, Human Resources personnel and in-house counsel in relation to all Tier 2 (General) and Tier 2 (Intra-Company Transfer) visas, as well as sponsor licence and Sponsor Management System matters. Corporate immigration laws are complex and full of procedural pitfalls that can often disrupt business plans. Therefore we not only provide day-to-day advice to clients, but also long term strategic planning to minimise problems and delays.

Our corporate immigration services include:

  • Work visa applications: Applying for Tier 2 (General) and Tier 2 (Intra-Company Transfer) entry and extension visas on behalf of non-European workers seeking to work in the UK, as well as applications for settlement and British citizenship on behalf of workers.
