Qualifications: Law LLB (Hons)
Louis specialises in matters of Immigration and Nationality law – advising both private individuals and businesses on all matters falling within the Immigration Rules, European Free Movement laws and Nationality legislation.
Immigration law is fast-changing, complex and pervades almost all aspects of law – particularly affecting families, business owners, HR professionals and residential landlords. No matter what situation a client finds themselves in, Louis’s first piece of advice would always be the same - ‘be aware and be prepared’; clients should always know the full spectrum of options available to them, along with the risks and advantages of each, so that they can make informed decisions that suit their circumstances.
In particular, Louis has developed particular expertise in the following matters:
- EU Rights & Rights of Residence (including advice relating to Brexit)
- Family Settlement and Human Rights applications
- Tier 1 Entrepreneur and Investor visas
- Tier 5 Creative and Sporting visas
- Sponsor License compliance for employers
- British Nationality assessments and applications for Naturalisation
