As sure as winter will soon become spring, the political world is changing, too. From Brexit to Trump, few predicted 2016’s political events. At David Gray Solicitors LLP, we continue to receive a significant volume of enquiries regarding the potential fallout of Brexit from EEA nationals as well as other non-EEA nationals who worry that the impact may be wider.
We have spent the latter half of 2016 reassuring our business and private clients about their rights to remain in the UK following the referendum result and assisting them to ensure that their documentation is in the best shape possible to withstand the changes we anticipate are coming – that is, clear, concise and up to date.
With further announcements expected on the rights of EEA nationals post-Brexit and changes already being brought in from April for employers of skilled workers, we can help to ensure businesses are able to attract the best overseas candidates, particularly in the IT and healthcare sectors, which are reliant on skilled migrant workers. In addition, we can help our private clients ensure they are in the best position to secure their future within the UK.
We have the region’s only specialist immigration team here at David Gray. Myself and a team of five handle a vast number of enquiries from businesses wishing to support prospective employees with their work visa applications and from individual clients who are continuing their journey to achieving a definite leave to remain, and have assisted clients with Tier 1, 2, 4 and 5 visas as well as their families.
