How do you help clients?

I help clients with the full range of contentious and non-contentious employment law issues. 

I regularly support clients with international HR matters with a particular focus on the employment and immigration issues arising from global expansion, international relocations, cross border disputes, multi-jurisdiction HR projects, international assignments and the recruitment and retention of talent from around the world.

I advise private clients on their immigration options with a particular focus on the innovator, global talent and investor visa routes.
