Immigration and residency

Working in the UK

Obtaining a job in a new country can be difficult - but navigating the rules and regulations around visas can be even more daunting. Whether you're looking to move to the UK for work-related reasons, or you're already here and seeking to extend your stay, you need to know your options to ensure visa restrictions don't stop you from taking advantage of employment opportunities in the UK.

The Mortons and the Frasers

It’s a family affair. Parents. Grandparents. Assorted sons, daughters, their partners, and kids.

Equal parts joy and mayhem. Our personal relationships, welfare and business, seamlessly managed together. There’s nothing quite like the modern family. A smarter, happier future starts here.

Clear advice

We cut through the jargon to provide you with clear advice on the different visa options you have, in both the short and long term. We can make an immigration application on your behalf in order to maximise your chances of success. If you are unsuccessful, we can identify your options on what to do next and can represent you in any appeal process.

Benefits we bring

Our team of immigration solicitors is highly experienced in navigating the Points-Based System, as well as other categories of visas, allowing you to work in the UK. We advise both employees and employers, which means we can work with your employer if necessary to help them gain the necessary licence to sponsor you and allow you to live and work here. The team is top rated by both Chambers and Legal 500.

At Morton Fraser we have a top rated Immigration team whose sole remit is to deal with this complex issue. We are a team of knowledgeable and committed specialists, with a huge breadth of experience that we can apply to any individual or any family’s particular circumstances.

We provide support for anyone seeking to come to the UK. We act on behalf of individuals and families, businesses and employees, investors and entrepreneurs, students and graduates wishing to remain in the UK, refugees and asylum seekers. We have extensive experience of assisting with appeals against Home Office decisions and also provide support to those applying to become British citizens. Where necessary, we also represent our clients robustly in court.

Our approach to fees

Where possible we offer fixed fee packages for advising on your immigration options and assisting with an application. If it's not possible to offer a fixed fee, we'll provide a clear indication of the likely fee based on an agreed scope of work.
