Business immigration sectors

Tech and Fintech

We monitor and understand immigration policy impacting fast-growth tech and fintech businesses, which is typically characterised by challenges such as the need to attract international talent, relocate for development and set up new offices and arms of the business globally. Our team can give expert advice on applications for a Global Talent or Innovator Visa, family and leadership team relocation, sponsor licensing and more.

Religious Orders

We work closely with religious orders in the UK and internationally to support and advise on sector-specific visa routes such as T2 Minister of Religion and T5 Religious Workers; we provide advice on sponsor licensing and local labour market exemptions for a wide range of religious bodies.


We have a long-standing background in the education sector, in particular higher education, working with universities and international language schools on policy and practice for international students and global study programmes, applications for visas for study, and eligibility to work or bring dependants.

What our clients say…

Stalled EU Settlement Scheme application

Just to thank you all for the help given with Bodil's EU Settlement Scheme application, which came through in the last few days.

A good friend of ours once said: "People do not employ lawyers because they help; they employ them because they make a difference".

I'm convinced that referral to Latitude did jolt the Home Office into progressing consideration of the application, and it made all the difference.

T & B.

Allowed Appeal

To Gemma and the team, Thank you very much for your amazing job done. You are life savers.

Four British passports

The British passports of my four children successfully reached us this week.

I wanted to thank the Latitude Law Firm for the constant professional support provided to us throughout the process. Your services have been helpful for us at each stage of the process. We would be happy to hire you again in the future for the process of my husband, and would also recommend your firm to others around us.

Lastly, I would like to take this opportunity to appreciate the hard work of Joel Reiss towards the successful completion of our case. His support for all of us from day 1 till the very last day has been commendable. Me and my children are very thankful to him for the smooth execution.

Looking forward to hiring the firm for our next case as well.
