With businesses relying more on overseas workers to provide key skills, attaining immigration clearance can be hugely important to a business’s success. Our team of immigration solicitors can advise your business on all aspects of immigration law, ensuring you're always able to hire the best talent for your company.

With the introduction of the points-based system reducing most routes into the UK, there are still ways that our immigration team can help businesses find the best solution to suit their needs.

Equally, you may wish to adopt robust procedures and policies for preventing illegal working or employing someone who needs permission to live and work in the UK.

Whatever your circumstances, our immigration solicitors will focus on your needs and recommend the correct steps to guide you through the complexities of the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) laws.

If you need to speak to an expert about any immigration matter affecting your business, get in touch with Lupton Fawcett today. Simply call us on 0333 323 5292, send us an email or fill in our online enquiry form and a member of the team will get back to you as soon as possible.
