The enormity of the decision to relocate yourself, your family or business should not be underestimated, and as such we offer a personalised, efficient and pragmatic approach to resolving immigration issues. In the context of the ever-changing world of immigration, we understand the importance of staying abreast of the continual changes in immigration rules and policy so we can always provide you with the advice to achieve the best outcome for you.

We act for a wide range of clients, including high net worth individuals, families and businesses, often working alongside other advisors, family offices and wealth managers. Able to advise on the full range of UK immigration applications, we provide services from initial entry to the UK, all the way through to British citizenship - working around timing that fits our clients, finding the right solutions for individuals and their employers, and catering to VIP applicants.

Timing can often be crucial in establishing a home in the UK and we are able to advise on the most expeditious solution, including fast track and VIP applications. We pride ourselves on taking a forward-thinking approach to our clients’ immigration matters, ensuring they are fully advised of their obligations and how to ensure compliance with the constantly evolving legislation.

When issues arise, whether as a result of economic or political forces in your country of origin or whilst in the UK, we are highly experienced and adept at handling immigration needs at short notice including applications for political asylum, immigration appeals and judicial review applications.

Our service always starts with an initial consultation with one of the top lawyers in our team. We work closely with other departments within the firm to provide a holistic, bespoke approach for every client, including tax, family, property, employment and dispute resolution experts. Our taxation specialists in particular help ensure that the immigration options take into account the best tax planning strategy for our clients. We also liaise with other professional advisors you may have, such as investment managers, accountants, education consultants and property consultants, to deliver a comprehensive service that is second to none.
