Business Immigration

What is business immigration?

Many UK based national and international companies look to the overseas market to source talent to meet their recruitment needs. Navigating the immigration system can be a challenge and drain on internal resource. At Freeths, our immigration solicitors specialise in guiding UK businesses through the immigration system to enable you to recruit the right people into roles, and in supporting overseas companies and innovators to expand into the UK market.

Our Business Immigration solicitors team are immigration experts, with over 30 years’ experience in navigating the complexities of the UK immigration system on our clients’ behalf. We will utilise this experience to ensure we achieve a successful outcome for you and your business, acting as your trusted legal advisors. We have a 100% success rate in securing immigration licences and work visa clearance.

With the right support, immigration can be a catalyst for growth by giving your business access to a global skilled workforce. Expanding your view of the available talent pool to the international market can give you a competitive advantage.
