Immigration law and practice is politically sensitive. As a result, it is constantly developing which makes it a challenging area for both businesses and individuals to navigate.

We provide an extensive range of immigration and nationality services: we pride ourselves on ensuring clients make successful applications and comply with immigration law and practice as it evolves.

Where matters are complex, we work closely with the UK immigration authorities to resolve them in an efficient and straightforward manner. This typically includes those involving unusual or urgent situations, immigration non-compliance and previous refusals.

Our clients range from high-net-worth individuals and their families to businesses, particularly in the financial services and technology sectors. 

Working with other teams across the firm (for example, employment, private client and tax), the immigration team provides a holistic service, providing individuals and businesses with assistance across the legal spectrum.
