Entrepreneurs and investors
We have the knowledge and skill to advise individuals on
entrepreneur and investor visa applications. Whether a client is contemplating
investing in, or setting up a new UK venture, we provide guidance from the
outset, taking a holistic view to ensure we advise on the most appropriate
means to meet the client’s long-term immigration aims addressing possible
extensions and settlement routes. Our US team guides both individual and
corporate investors through the process of establishing or purchasing a company
in the US in order to obtain E-2 treaty investor visas for the investors and

We advise private clients and their families on the full

applications to indefinite leave to remain or to obtaining British citizenship
and passports. Our US team assists clients with visitor visa applications and waivers
of inadmissibility, and advising US citizens living abroad on matters including
renunciation of citizenship, passport renewal, second passport applications and
registration of birth for US citizen children born abroad. As for Human Rights,
we have a dedicated team with extensive knowledge to advise individuals on
