Global mobility, and the ability to move smoothly across the world, is of critical importance for ultra-high net worth families, senior executives and businesses. Many families split their time between more than one jurisdiction, and businesses often relocate their key people, in accordance with commercial needs.

Our clients frequently make the decision to relocate to the UK. We navigate the complexities of the UK Immigration Rules on their behalf to make sure this is a smooth process, finding innovative solutions to meet our clients’ needs.

How we work

Our immigration advice is seamlessly integrated with our private wealth, tax, employment and corporate advice. This ensures that there is a strategic, client-centric approach to all immigration and sponsor licence applications which is aligned with the broader aims of the family, individual or business.

We have significant experience in working with the Home Office to achieve the best possible outcomes for our clients, particularly in cases where the application being made is unusual or requires the exercise of discretion. Where necessary, we are also adept at assisting clients with the immigration appeals procedure.
