immigration


Immigration policy remains firmly at the forefront of political debate given the government’s promise to reduce net skilled migration to the tens of thousands.

Brexit has created uncertainty for businesses and staff in relation to the status of EEA nationals in the future.

For those businesses that need to recruit from outside of the EEA, it can be a struggle to navigate the ambiguous and ever-changing requirements of the points-based system and ensure that onerous obligations to the Home Office are met. Getting it wrong could result in the revocation of a sponsor licence and a ban on recruiting migrant workers.

If businesses do not conduct the correct right to work checks, they risk significant penalties and damage to reputation.

Our experienced immigration team is here to support your business with these issues by providing clear, practical and tailored solutions. As all of our team are specialists in employment law, we can also provide added-value advice on connected HR matters.

We have developed competitively priced products to help navigate the immigration rules and regulations, including:

what we do...

  • Sponsor Licence applications - renewals; revocations; and suspensions.

  • Product innovation -  navigate the immigration rules and regulations via our competitively priced Immigration Checker; one-stop Licence to Sponsor and visa application product; and Level 1 User offering.

  • Specialists in employment law - providing clients with added-value advice on connected HR matters, such as the termination of illegal workers; document checking and recruitment.
