Being able to recruit from overseas is a business-critical issue for many employers who need to ensure their workforce has the necessary skills, experience and depth of resource and talent.
However, business immigration law is complex and constantly changing. It is often difficult and time consuming for employers and HR professionals to keep up to date with the rules and navigate through what is actually required.
Our business immigration specialists advise employers across many sectors including FTSE100 companies, multinational organisations, educational establishments, NHS bodies and technology start-ups. We also work with entrepreneurs, investors and high net worth individuals, bolstering the breadth of our experience and expertise.
All our immigration specialists are employment lawyers, meaning we advise seamlessly between any immigration and employment law matter.
Breaching sponsor duties or immigration rules can lead to serious financial, operational and reputational risks. Ultimately, sanctions can include revocation of your sponsor licence by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI), and civil and criminal penalties. Getting it right is vital.
