Immigration

Today’s workforce is increasingly international, with companies competing for talent on a global scale.

It is more critical than ever to mobilise the skills and knowledge bases of the modern workforce across borders in order to reconfigure operations, respond to shifting demand or to enter new markets.

As businesses look to strategically deploy and secure talent, getting immigration right is a critical, but complex, process. Expert advice that can smooth the transition is vital. Our specialist approach minimises the risk of avoidable problems which can slow progress and provides fast turnaround solutions to any unexpected issues that arise.

From relocations for senior executives or even entire teams to high net worth individuals or high-profile celebrities or athletes – and their families – relocating on a temporary or permanent basis, we provide a truly personal, end-to-end service, operating from our offices across London, Cardiff, Oxford, Belfast, Dublin and Hong Kong. Knowing how time-sensitive and stressful the process can be, we have the expertise to hit the ground running and minimise the impact on your business and the lives of the people involved.
