UK Law Firm
Immigration
Associate/Senior Associate 5+PQE
London

This Legal 500 ranked national law firm advises businesses and individuals, both nationally and internationally. The firm's international reach is growing – nearly 1/5 of revenue is sourced from outside the UK. The firm offers a range of core services across many sectors: commercial (including technology and intellectual property), corporate, regulatory, restructuring and insolvency, dispute resolution (including litigation and international arbitration), employment, immigration, international family law, projects/PFI, real estate, sustainable agriculture, court of protection and tax and trusts.

The Immigration team has a great depth of experience, operating as one team across all the firm's offices. They provide specialist guidance to businesses, high net worth clients and individuals alike.

The team assists businesses to set up and manage sponsor licences to give them access to an international pool of talent. Preparing and submitting worker and temporary worker visa applications and acting as Level 1 Users is all part of the day–to–day operation of the team. In addition, the team prides themselves on providing commercially focused immigration advice and support on mergers and acquisitions, astute support with sponsor licence compliance and licence downgrades, suspensions and revocations.

Their immigration lawyers also relish the frequent opportunities to work with individuals and their families on visit visas, innovator founder visas, global talent visas, dependent visas, settlement visas and British nationality applications.

The team are now seeking an experienced Associate/Senior Associate to join them and take an active role in growing the practice, working in the firm's London office.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • At least 5 years of post–qualified UK law firm experience in Corporate Immigration and experience of working with high–net worth individuals;
  • First–class technical skills.
  • Experience in collaborating cross–team to maximise business opportunities and provide a full–service to clients;
  • A passion for business development and keen to be client–facing and attend external events to promote the service offering;
  • A proven track record of attracting new clients and being committed to developing the practice;


Please apply as directed or confidentially contact Aidan McAvinue at Search Legal for more information. Alternatively, if this role is not for you, I am working a variety of other immigration opportunities with ranked teams in the City of London so would be interested to talk to any immigration lawyer.

Search is an equal opportunities recruiter and we welcome applications from all suitably skilled or qualified applicants, regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/beliefs, sexual orientation or age.
