High Net Worth Immigration

The immigration journey for a client who is high net worth can either be complex or straightforward. And we can help no matter what. 

How we can help

If necessary we work with our colleagues in other departments, including corporate and tax to find a holistic solution to suit the needs of this ever changing immigration category.

We are ideally placed to help. Our team is significantly experienced, having advised HNW clients for over 35 years. We’re also members of the Immigration Law Practitioners Association, to which we contribute in the debate concerning the nuances and changes to this immigration category.

Not all high net worth clients want to invest large sums of money in the UK to obtain immigration status here. We navigate the complexities of the Immigration Rules to give holistic advice to suit the economic and personal circumstances of our client and their family so that moving here is as pain-free as it can be. We always strive to ensure our clients can obtain a status  suitable to their personal circumstances which can lead, if necessary, to British Citizenship.

We pride ourselves as a team that we’ve been measured by our clients and competitors as leaders in the sector, with two of the team ranked for Immigration by independent directory Chambers High Net Worth.

Case studies:

Tier 1 investor

Our client came to the United Kingdom as a Tier 1 Investor, as his entire family were being relocated in various immigration categories as a result of our advice. It was important that they all obtained status at the same time and they gained permission to remain as a family unit, as some of the members of the family unit were caring for others.

Tech start up entrepreneur

Our client had an established tech start-up with a global reach, and needed advice in making an extension application to his Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) leave.
