Recruiting talent overseas
In certain industries, employers are forced to look outside the UK for workers to create or maintain a workforce which has the best skills, experience and qualifications necessary to ensure profitability. If recruiting from outside the UK, failure to get the appropriate visas and permissions can have extreme consequences for you and your business. Penalties can range from large fines to being named and shamed in the press.
Our business immigration lawyers are familiar with and keep on top of the UK’s changing immigration laws and Home Office guidance. We are regularly instructed by start-ups, SME’s and large global companies to assist them with all their business immigration needs.
As experts in the field of business immigration, we can assist you in becoming a licensed sponsor and thereafter provide you with ongoing support to ensure you are:

- Complying with your sponsor duties; and
- Able to hire migrant workers with relative ease.
