We advise businesses and individuals on business immigration and nationality matters as they affect business people.  

Areas of advice include assisting with Tier 1, 2, 4 and 5 visas including for cross-border inter-group transfers of employees, advice on permanent residence/indefinite leave to remain and settlement, investor, writers and entrepreneur status, sportsperson and artists visas or persons who wish to establish a business in the UK.  

We also co-ordinate foreign advice for business people who wish to obtain permission to work in European and non-European countries. 

Some specific examples of our expertise in employment law are set out below.

  • Advising a charity on the need to obtain Tier 5 visas for prospective employees who do not have the right to work in the UK

    Are there drawbacks to Branson's flexi-holiday plan?

  • The Guardian - Sept 2014

    'Unlimited holiday' is laced with legal pitfalls for small businesses. It sounds good in principle, but the policy - championed by SIr Richard Branson - could open businesses up to discrimination claims.

  • The Times - The right to be forgotten

    Right to be forgotten: what does it mean for employee's references? In the employment area the balancing act between transparency and privacy is difficult and the issues much less understood.

Testimonials

  • "I first hired Jessica in the late 90"s to assist our company in its efforts to establish itself in England. Based upon the excellent results, extremely quick response time and her ability to expedite our applications and registrations we have continued to procure her services over the years. 

    Although others in our firm now take care of the issues Jessica assist us with, she continues to provide me with regular updates regarding current legislation in England (she does not forget her clients once the initial effort is complete). I would highly recommend Jessica to any firm."
