Do Pitmans’ Immigration lawyers have any particular areas of expertise?

Today, immigration forms a crucial part of UK business compliance law. However, the ground upon which the immigration regime in the UK is built is forever shifting. The issues involved have become something of a political hot potato in recent years, with successive governments put under ever-increasing pressure by the media and public opinion to tighten up the way this country’s borders are controlled.

It takes an expert to keep up with the changes. That’s where we can help.

We recognise the potential that the highly-motivated and skilled migrant workforce offers to business as well as sport, entertainment and culture within the UK.

We are equipped with the experience and know-how of the UK Border Agency rules and procedures required to ensure you act in a legally compliant manner.
