I have a result driven attitude, offering clear and efficient counsel, and give my personal attention to every matter.

I am a fully qualified solicitor with over 15 years’ experience specialising in UK immigration.

I have worked at a number of niche immigration law firms, as well heading an immigration department at a top 40 international law firm.

My work has seen me advise businesses on:

    • applications for sponsor licences in order to sponsor foreign workers
    • advice on their ongoing duties as sponsors to maintain such licenses
    • how to set up operations in the UK and on the most efficient ways to transfer employees to the UK business from their international branches
    • the duties and obligations of sponsors following a merger or acquisition
    • prevention of illegal employment

I have also advised a number of high-net-worth individuals from the Middle East and Asia on investing in the UK, moving to the UK and their residency requirements.

Examples of my work include:

    • advising a national oil corporation from the Middle East on moving their key engineers to the UK on a secondment
    • advising a Malaysian listed company on the most effective way to set up operations in the UK and transferring senior employees
    • advising a chain of Lebanese restaurants on the recruitment of foreign chefs
    • a prominent US software company on setting up operations in the UK and transferring a senior employee
    • advising premier league football club on their licence and its obligations
    • advising a number of polo teams on the suspension of their licences, liaising with their governing body and the Home Office to reinstate.
