I joined Child & Child as a partner and Head of the Immigration Department, after many years of experience as the Head of Immigration and a senior immigration solicitor in various Legal 500 firms.

I specialise in corporate, business, and private immigration matters, with a strong focus on startups and multinational companies expanding their business into the UK market. My practice often involves advising UK and global businesses on the necessary steps to secure a Sponsor Licence and to sponsor migrant workers to meet their business needs.

I also work with exceptionally talented individuals seeking to relocate to the UK through the various highly skilled routes like the Global Talent visa, Innovator Founder, High Potential Individuals or International Sportspersons. I have successfully represented international footballers, Emmy winners, internationally acclaimed architects and designers, and digital entrepreneurs.

I proud myself on my devotion to my clients, and I strive to provide comprehensive and clear legal advice and support in combination with bold and innovative strategies to meet their needs and obtain successful results.
