I head our Hong Kong office and specialise in corporate and personal immigration including providing advice on and managing international cross border projects, particularly across the Asia Pacific region.
My client base is drawn from a broad range of industries internationally and I act for start-up businesses through to multinationals. My work covers industry sectors such as law firms, Investment banks, airline leasing companies, auction houses and high end fashion houses and restaurants.
I also handle a range of immigration options for high net worth individuals seeking permanent residence or citizenship in the UK and other jurisdictions and individuals or companies who need advice on long term options for establishing a business and a team of staff in the UK. Although my practice is heavily international I regularly advise on all areas of UK immigration law and am noted by the Legal 500 for ‘providing practical and commercial advice’ and ‘always responsive, even in demanding time frames’.
Immigration & Global Mobility
Leading our practice across Asia I handle international projects for clients transferring staff globally. I co-ordinate all aspects of international transfers including the movement of dependent family members. This frequently involves liaison with Immigration Authorities and Embassies globally and with our Ius Laboris partner firms. I regularly handle applications for high net worth individuals under the UK Investor and Entrepreneur programmes and have strong connections with private client intermediaries for tax, wealth management and education options to offer clients seamless advice on relocation to UK or other jurisdictions.
