Business Immigration

Successfully navigating the UK's immigration regime is business-critical for many organisations.

Whether you’re an employer facing a skills shortage and needing to recruit key talent or want your global business to access the UK market, our team of experienced employment lawyers and business immigration specialists can partner with you to achieve your goals.

We advise on all aspects of economic migration to ensure that your organisation is compliant with immigration and employment law requirements. 

From navigating sponsor licences and Skilled Worker visa requirements to Global Business Mobility visa routes and the visitor rules for business travellers to the UK, our team provides a bespoke service based on your organisation’s needs.

As a specialist immigration law team, we’re experts on the fast-changing UK immigration regime and key geopolitical events that impact it. For example, we’re experienced in advising businesses on the post-Brexit landscape for EU nationals, including the implications for their business travellers and mobile workforces and how they can use the sponsored work routes to achieve their expansion plans.

Recognised as an “extremely professional and knowledgeable” top-tier immigration law team by The Legal 500 for our “friendly, supportive and helpful manner”, our full-service offering enables us to work with you efficiently to ensure that you fully benefit from our expertise.

We support employers with their responsibilities such as the prevention of illegal working and Home Office inspections, sponsor duties and dealing with licence revocations and appeals. For our corporate clients, we also advise on the immigration law implications of mergers and acquisitions.

We work with a range of employers and businesses from SMEs to national and multinational organisations across all sectors — including healthcare, bioscience, hospitality, construction, manufacturing, recruitment, life sciences, tech and sports law

Are you...

  • …an employer looking to recruit non-UK talent

    We understand the current pressures facing UK employers.

    Navigating the fast-changing UK immigration laws is increasingly complex. Without proper legal support, employers are unintentionally making mistakes that could significantly impact their business. 

    Working closely with our recruitment and workforce solutions team, we can help to boost your recruitment efforts and access a wider talent pool of specialist, non-UK national candidates where possible.

    Our immigration services for employers include:

    • Obtaining a sponsor licence.
    • Recruiting non-UK skilled workers.
    • Sponsor duties and compliance.
    • Sponsorship management roles — we act as named representatives for your sponsor licence and take up key personnel roles.
    • Training — we deliver bespoke training for your people teams, managers and in-house legal teams on right-to-work checks and how immigration law impacts your business.
  • …a global business

    We assist international investors and business leaders with expanding their businesses into the UK.

    Having access to the UK market is often a key business strategy for businesses looking to expand globally. Hiring employees from overseas or relocating key staff that are based abroad can be vital for successful entry.

    From advising on start-up and innovator visas to Global Business Mobility visas, we collaborate with our colleagues across various legal disciplines including employment, corporate, commercial and real estate law to provide the support that you need.

  • …an individual seeking the best route into the UK

    We support Brabners Personal clients with all aspects of personal immigration — providing a personal and dedicated service to support overseas high-net-worth individuals, investors and innovators throughout their immigration journey. 

    We can support you to decide which route best suits your needs, from making the application through to extending your stay in the UK, settling and obtaining British citizenship and UK passports.
