Advising in this area of immigration is not just work for us but a passion, as we firmly believe that for the UK to remain competitive in a global market, to create wealth and employment that it must attract the best foreign investment and business.
We have both in the press and directly to government set out the importance of having an immigration policy which encourages the best talent and business people to choose the UK as the destination to set up.
More recently, we are now co-funding a policy driven PhD which will examine the success of highly skilled migrants in the UK. For more information click here.
