Immigration

The UK’s position as a global centre for business, as well as having one of the highest standards of living in the world, an excellent education system, rich heritage and advantageous tax regime for high earners, may understandably be attracting you to make it your home.

If you have funds of over £2 million, you are in a beneficial position as the UK Investor Visa Scheme allows you to live in the UK, establish a business, work and study with fewer entry requirements.

However, each person’s circumstances are unique and the UK’s immigration laws can be a complex labyrinth to navigate. You need dedicated support and advice, focused on your particular needs and goals. We provide you with a dedicated legal adviser who will work closely with you to determine your goals, advise you of your rights and opportunities and effectively facilitate the application process.

As well as helping you through all the practicalities of securing entry into the UK, your adviser also works closely with our Private Client team to help you navigate the complexities of the UK tax regime and ensure that your immigration options take into account the best tax planning strategy. We also have an excellent network of exclusive contacts which enables us to help you with the many other associated issues, such as the transfer of assets, relocating your business, family immigration issues and property investment.

We are able to manage even the most complex applications and work hard to obtain a result that is favourable to you. Our objective is to support you with a unified and seamless team of selected advisers who are all experts in their respective fields. It will be our job to navigate the various government departments, legal statutes and Immigration Rules to give you the best advice and to help make your transition to the UK as successful, secure and stress-free as possible.

Our immigration team, working closely with our exclusive contacts and other teams across the firm, have extensive experience helping clients relocate to the UK and advising on the many other issues associated with UK immigration.
