Business immigration sectors
Arts and entertainment
A sector characterised by short-term sponsorship for specific engagements, our team has the experience and skills to act quickly in relation to events, often acting on instructions at short notice. Our partnership with nQ Legal means we are ideally-placed to provide holistic legal advice across all aspects of a tour or one-off engagement. We have also advised on a number of Global Talent cases in the sector, notably for emerging artists in the soul and Afrobeat genres.
Tech & 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.
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.
Our work in this sector often involves short-term entry under business visitor rules, advising overseas businesses providing installation, maintenance and related services to UK client companies. We take instructions at short notice, always mindful of the business needs of client and customer.
We act for some of the North West’s highest-profile and fastest-growing bar and restaurant businesses, facilitating employment of overseas staff into key roles via the Skilled Worker sponsor licence route.
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.
