Call for evidence on the impact of the Tier 1 (Investor) route.
Mishcon de Reya is a well-known law firm which, amongst other areas, specialises in advising high net-worth global clients wishing to secure residency by investment in the UK. We already undertake a significant amount of work for applicants under the Tier 1 (Investor) category, and believe we are one of the few practices almost exclusively focussed in this area. Our exposure to the needs and motivations of such clients allowed us to lobby effectively; formulating proposals which led to the creation of the £5 million and £10 million investor categories. Our comments below in response to this request for Consultation are therefore based on our considerable exposure to applicants from a diverse range of geographies.
