Our immigration solicitors offer a comprehensive service for businesses and individuals on all aspects of UK Immigration law, British citizenship, EU Law, and Right to Work issues tailored to you.

COVID-19 Advice Statement: Full remote working service

Since the middle of March, our immigration team has been working remotely from home, and we are currently operating a business-as-usual service. All of our meetings have been moved to digital channels, and we are consulting with clients via video conference (all that is required is an email address and a webcam on phone or laptop). Given we operate a digital office, this has been a smooth process and we have already completed a number of visa applications from start to finish using our home working systems.

Strategic review of immigration position for all existing visa holders

This is a challenging time for people around the world. For visa-holders, particularly those who have visas expiring in the coming weeks and months, the issue of immigration status can be an added concern at a difficult moment. We have been working strategically with our individual clients to bring their visa applications forward where possible so as to provide them with reassurance and protect their immigration status. 

Reassurance on immigration compliance

We are living through unprecedented and exceptional circumstances. While we appreciate that many businesses and individuals will be concerned about immigration compliance issues, we would seek to provide reassurance that, while there may be many technical issues to work through, our view is that the Home Office message has been consistent throughout, and that no one will be penalised in the future for actions taken as an unavoidable result of COVID-19. Further information is available in our employer FAQ guide here.

The advice we offer covers all aspects of immigration advice for individuals, families and employers. It comprises applications to the Home Office for people looking to enter or remain in the UK as well as supporting corporate transactions, providing advice on transfers of your international workforce and changes to your sponsor licence. We regularly work with employers of all sizes to undertake audits and training for their Human Resources team on best practice for immigration compliance.

Our Head of Immigration is one of only a handful of solicitors in Scotland who is an accredited specialist with the Law Society of Scotland. The firm is a member of the Immigration Law Practitioners' Association.

Working with our immigration solicitors, you will also have access to our wider team of employment lawyers, as well as tax and succession planning experts – providing fully-integrated, holistic and innovative, solutions for you, your business and your family.

  • I'd like to thanks Jacqueline and her team for her immense help during my application process. It's been an uncertain time with the pandemic and I won't be able to deal with the stress coming with the visa applications without the team's professionalism and efficiency. The communication was easy, and the team always keeps me well informed of new developments. They go above and beyond to suggest the most cost effective and least complicated method for my visa extension. I can't be more grateful for their help - especially during the stressful time.
