Over the past ten years of providing specialist UK immigration practice, I have accrued a wealth of experience in top ranked immigration teams. I have been privileged to work with many exceptional clients, from ultra-high net worth individuals in all walks of life, to innovative start-up companies, charities and large multi-nationals.

Whilst my current focus is in the science, technology and engineering industries, I have worked with corporate clients in a broad array of sectors including; oil and gas, financial, media, advertising, consulting, manufacturing, hospitality, design and advertising. My high net worth clients have derived their wealth from exciting trajectories in music, film and the arts, design, modelling, hospitality and natural resources, among others. Accordingly, I recognise that clients value flexibility, practicality and clarity from their legal advisors. I endeavor to always provide this in the manner best suited to their unique situation and priorities.

My clients come from a broad range of industry sectors and I advise on the full range of business immigration routes as well as applicable personal immigration issues. This includes applications for Sole Representative of an Overseas Business visas, Tier 2 Sponsor Licenses and associated Tier 2 applications as well as Tier 1 Entrepreneurs and Investors.

Immigration

In the current immigration climate, preparing clients for potential Home Office audits and ensuring compliance is vitally important and forms a significant portion of my work via training and mock audits. Further, I often provide seminars for the benefit of both employers and employees concerned about the impending changes to Free Movement as a result of Brexit. I have also successfully challenged a number of Civil Penalties under the Illegal Working Regime and, to assist in their prevention, developed practical measures to fit cooperatively with clients’ existing business systems.

Technology & Communications

As the Vice Chair of techUK’s Skills, Talent and Migration Group, I regularly advise and consult on the unique concerns of STEM companies within the requirements and restrictions of immigration law. In addition, I regularly meet with senior Home Office officials, which affords me high level contacts and insight, to better service my clients’ immigration needs.
