Business Immigration / London
I am a Director of Business and Private Immigration at Duncan Lewis Solicitors, with over 18 years experience. I supervise a team of solicitors, trainees and paralegals who all specialise in private and business immigration.

I have a strong practice advising international businesses and high-net-worth individuals in complex Tier 1, 2 and 4 applications under the Points Based System (PBS). I successfully assist clients in obtaining visas under the Tier 1 (Exceptional) Talent/Promise categories within the technology and arts fields on a regular basis. I frequently advise high-net-worth individuals from Asia, the Middle East and Russia in relation to obtaining visas under the Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) and Tier 1 (Investor) categories. I also specialise in Tier 2 sponsorship licence matters and advising businesses on their immigration strategy and compliance issues.

I conduct immigration business claimant judicial review matters, in particular, challenges on behalf of PBS applicants. I have also undertaken complex appeals in the Administrative Court on British nationality matters.

Having advised Fortune 100 companies in my previous positions at two of the ‘big four’ accountancy firms and other tier 1 Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners ranked practises, I have extensive experience in advising businesses on Tier 2 and 5 sponsorship, immigration strategy and conducting compliance audits. I am often requested to assist companies facing criminal or civil penalties in relation to working illegally.

I have been noted as a ‘Recommended Individual’ in the legal directory The Legal 500 under the 'Immigration: Business' category since 2012.
