Why us?

Many employers rely on being able to hire people from outside the UK or Europe to ensure their workforce has the best skills, experience and qualifications. Recruitment of non EEA nationals from overseas is often essential for positions where there is a skills shortage in the UK or where specialist language skills are needed.  Individuals are often keen to come to the UK to work, set up a business or study.  The added uncertainty of Brexit also will require employers to reassess recruitment of people from inside the EU going forward.

However, if your main aim is to ensure that your new employees are able to start work quickly and move to the UK with as little stress as possible, UK immigration law and procedures can often seem unduly complex and complicated.

Similarly individual clients can benefit from sound legal advice to ensure that they make the appropriate application and meet the Home Office requirements.

Immigration is a complex area of law for both corporates and individuals. Please contact Conor McCrory, Associate, Immigration Law Team, Cleaver Fulton Rankin, Solicitors for further advice and information.
