Immigration law

Expert guidance and support from trusted immigration solicitors

Understanding immigration law

At Russell-Cooke we understand that immigration law is personal, even for businesses, and we reflect this in both our advice and approach.

Our highly ranked London-based immigration team has for many years been trusted by businesses across a wide range of industry sectors to help them achieve their immigration related objectives in the UK. 

Our team of leading immigration lawyers is also recognised for its long and successful track record of advising individuals on their personal immigration matters. 

Business immigration

We are one of the highest ranked immigration teams in London and can help with all areas of business immigration law in the UK.

The quality of our advice and experience is such that we are often trusted to support clients of other leading professional services firms in the UK and overseas with their immigration needs.

Areas our immigration solicitors specialise in advising businesses on include:

  • skilled Worker and Senior or Specialist Worker (Global Mobility) sponsored visa applications
  • all aspects of the sponsorship regime, including applying for a sponsor licence and ongoing compliance with the sponsor regime
  • Scale-up Worker, Global Talent and Innovator Founder visas

On the advisory side we also assist businesses with drafting compliance manuals and ongoing compliance with UK immigration laws and sponsorship duties as well as providing training. Our immigration lawyers are also experienced in handling contentious business immigration matters, including challenging unlawful Home Office decisions, e.g. by judicial review or appeal.

Our immigration solicitors also often employ their niche expertise by taking on particularly complicated cases, ranging from corporate transactions, administrations, judicial review, distressed sponsor licences and reorganisations affecting sponsor licence holding companies/sponsored workers.
