Our specialist immigration team has been advising a large number of businesses since the EU referendum.

How have we helped other businesses so far?

We have provided:

  • expert assistance in drafting Brexit communications to staff;
  • valuable one-to-one sessions with EU staff covering all aspects of UK immigration law including British citizenship, the EU Settlement Scheme and rights of non EU family members including parents;
  • strategic advice on no-deal planning on people matters; and
  • help in applying for a Sponsor licence in order to retain non-EU staff following a decline in EU migrant staff.

If so, you can apply for financial support from the Scottish Government of up to £4,000, which can be used to cover legal fees for advice relating to immigration issues, amongst other topics.

The application process is straightforward and decisions are normally processed within 10 working days. You can access the application form here.
