Business Immigration

The Immigration Group provides bespoke advice to many international businesses and financial organisations. We regularly collaborate with our in-house Employment team to ensure our advice is as well-rounded and informed as possible. Working with international tax advisors and private bankers, we make it possible for clients to take full advantage of the UK’s favourable taxation regime.

With experience of a diverse range of sectors, including financial, creative, media, technology and fashion, we understand the recruitment nuances in each industry and tailor our advice accordingly.

Our extensive contacts throughout the Immigration and Nationality Services in the UK, as well as those with visa issuing posts overseas, allow us to obtain exceptional and expeditious results for our clients.

The team is led by Steven Bostock under the supervision of Kamal Rahman, Head of Immigration.
