Profile / Experience

I am a Trainee Solicitor in Business and Private Immigration at Duncan Lewis Solicitors. I work alongside a team of solicitors, trainees, and caseworkers on a daily basis, and regularly work with barristers, immigration consultants, paralegals, and translators. I assist high-net worth individuals, businesspersons, sports-persons, artists and entertainers, and employers from start-ups through to major international corporations.

I have a broad practice in the full spectrum of business, investor and employment-related immigration. This includes immigration routes for investors, entrepreneurs, start-ups, innovators, sole representatives of overseas businesses, exceptionally talented persons and skilled workers, as well as their family members. I provide legal solutions to a plethora of industries including, but not limited to market leaders in the alcohol industry, the care home sector, property development companies and professional accountants.

I also advise and work with clients across a broad spectrum of other immigration and nationality matters, ranging from family migration under Appendix FM, settlement applications, human rights claims and British citizenship.

Possessing an excellent track record, I challenge decisions of the Home Office before the Immigration and Asylum Chamber (First-tier Tribunal and Upper Tribunal) and have won cases in the High Court of Justice of England and Wales.
