“I got to know Thal in the process of providing support to Chinese investors with intentions to set up in the UK since 2009. These ranged from small companies and large gobal corporations.

Thal and his team's awareness of Chinese culture, knowledge of immigration in the UK, and approach to build a long-term relationship with the clients, have facilitated the Chinese companies to set up and develop in the UK.
I would be glad to recommend Thal to other Chinese companies investing in the UK who need specialist advice and service to help their Chinese staff enter and work in the UK legally.”
