Our global mobility solicitors will advise on the immigration system of the destination country or countries, and undertake the appropriate immigration filings, as well as liaising with government contacts where necessary.
We will listen to your needs and spend time familiarising ourselves with your business plan, goals and objectives, before tailoring our global mobility solutions for your exact requirements.
