Coffin Mew bolsters employment offering with new business immigration service

Coffin Mew, a leading law firm with offices in Brighton, has launched a new business immigration service. Aimed at companies that recruit staff from overseas, as well as those with foreign subsidiaries and companies looking to set up in the UK, it bolsters the firm’s employment offering.

“We understand that recruiting the right people is vitally important and often challenging,” said Coffin Mew partner and head of employment Leon Deakin. “However, the rules on business immigration and engaging foreign workers are complex and change rapidly, with severe penalties and reputational issues for those that get it wrong. If a company or organisation needs professional advice in this area of law, we are here to help.”

Coffin Mew’s team can assist with ‘right to work’ checks to protect businesses from criminal and civil liability, navigating the current right of free movement for European Economic Area (EEA) nationals, Brexit preparations and managing a workforce following a merger or acquisition.

The team can also advise on elements of the UK’s tiered visa system, which is the main immigration route for migrants from outside the EEA to come into the country. These relate to skilled workers, intra-company transfers (ICT), sponsor license applications, students and certain temporary workers.

Leon continued: “Listening to our clients and markets, and responding to their needs is crucial to Coffin Mew. We are therefore delighted to now be able to offer this additional service in-house. As part of our employment offering, it will complement Coffin Mew’s overarching proposition for businesses of all sizes.”

The team offers a friendly service, competitive pricing structures and prompt responses, together with direct access to a trusted network of immigration barristers and former judges.
