Business Immigration

We offer a full immigration service to UK businesses wishing to employ foreign nationals and regularly advise foreign businesses and individuals wishing to work and start a business in the United Kingdom.  We are also often instructed by private individuals and families wishing to live in the UK, with particular experience in dealing with high net worth families. We can provide all advice relating to employers wishing to apply for a Sponsors Licence and ongoing regulatory advice.

Head of our immigration practice, Graeme Kirk, acted as Chair of the Immigration & Nationality Committee of the International Bar Association from 2000 – 2004, and will become Co-Chair of the IBA Global Employment Institute in January 2016.
