United Kingdom

An essential market for global businesses

The United Kingdom has long been one of the world’s foremost economies. With the 5th highest GDP, annual goods import value of above $600bn USD and the world’s largest financial centre, expanding into the UK market is a priority for every major global business.

Due to the UK’s unique relationship with the European Union and the Commonwealth, the migration system can be extremely complex and requires expert knowledge to be able to develop mobility strategies that meet the needs of your organisation. This complexity was highlighted by Lord Justice Irwin in 2018 when he described the current Immigration Rules as “completely impenetrable” to lay people and that even “non-specialist lawyers will make frequent errors”.

With such a complex and ever-changing system, it is essential that companies seek expert legal advice from specialised professionals to ensure compliance with the law and avoid the large financial and time losses that can result from application refusals.
