About Harry

I have extensive experience representing private clients on complex immigration matters. I am meticulous as to details and carry a mission-first attitude in my approach.

Harry has advised film stars and high net worth individuals on their UK immigration and nationality matters. He can provide the full range of private client and corporate immigration law advice.

From global talent applications to complex Tier 1 (Investor) and Tier 1 (entrepreneur) applications, Harry has helped his clients to prevail. He has successfully lobbied for a global talent visa endorsement body to change their endorsement rules and by extension the immigration rules for film stars. He has helped overturn adverse immigration issues for visitors. He has helped clients on a wide array of Covid-19 related immigration issues including resolving travel bans from overstaying. He takes pride in helping to unite families and helping clients settle their lives in the UK.
