I am a Director of Business and Private Immigration at Duncan Lewis. My practise encompasses a wide area including advising High Net Worth individuals under the Tier 1 category to conducting complex appeals in the Administrative Court on British Nationality matters.
Having advised Fortune 100 Companies in my previous positions with two of the ‘Big Four’ Accountancy firms and other Tier 1 Legal 500 & Chambers ranked practises, I have gained extensive experience on advising businesses on Tier 2 & 5 sponsorship l, immigration strategy and conducting compliance audits. I am also often requested to assist companies facing criminal/civil penalties in relation to illegal working.
More recently I have advised clients successfully in obtaining visas under the Tier 1 (Exceptional) Talent/Promise categories within the Technology and Arts fields. I possess particular expertise in the Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) & Tier 1 ( Investor) categories and regularly advise high-net-worth individuals from Asia, the Middle East and Russia in relation to such applications.
I also specialise in the conduct of privately funded judicial reviews, challenging decisions under the Points Based System and have managed to secure successful outcomes for my clients, including costs on their behalf.
I supervise a team of solicitors, trainees and paralegals who all specialise in private and business immigration.
I have been ranked as a ‘Recommended Lawyer’ in Legal 500 under the Immigration: Business Category since 2012.
