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 (HNW) families and family offices. We can provide all advice relating to employers wishing to apply for a Sponsors Licence and ongoing regulatory advice.

Head of our immigration practice is Charles Avens, who acts on both personal and business immigration matters, acting for companies, HNW individuals and family offices.

  • We regularly advise International Banks on intra-company transfers of staff to the UK.
