Business Immigration

With constant changes to UK immigration rules, the area of law has never been such a minefield. Our business immigration team provides advice to clients who currently employ or are considering employing foreign nationals, or transferring existing employees to foreign offices.

Issues we regularly advise on include:

  • The process and obligations involved when sponsoring migrant workers under any category of the points based system
  • Employee eligibility to switch between Tiers and categories
  • The necessary right to work checks and the implications of employing illegal workers.

Working alongside our Corporate Finance team, we provide advice to clients who face immigration issues when buying or selling businesses. We also provide training to clients on immigration law.

As the Scottish member of the Employment Law Alliance we are part of an international network of employment and immigration lawyers. This enables us to access expert advice globally. Our business immigration team is also a member of the Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association.
