At Morton Fraser Lawyers we have highlighted clarity as our guiding principle.
This directs the way we communicate, the way we advise, the way we conduct relationships with our clients and the way we are totally transparent and upfront about our charges. This applies to all our services from the straightforward to the more complex.
If you're an entrepreneur with an exciting business idea, the last thing you need is to get caught up in red tape. If you're investing, you'll want an easy way to invest your money without further restrictions being placed on you.
We'll give you clear and practical advice on the best options for you and what you need to do to comply with the relevant visa regulations - allowing you to concentrate on your own commercial interests.
Benefits we bring
Our immigration team is highly experienced in assisting entrepreneurs and investors coming to the UK, whether under Tier 1 of the points-based system (for high-value migrants) or by using other visa types. We make investing in the UK as pain-free as possible.
The team is Ranked Tier one in Legal 500 for 2018/19 and top ranked by Chambers and Partners. We work closely with our commercial and private client teams to ensure that all your needs are met.
Our approach to fees
We can offer a range of feeing options including fixed fee packages. 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.
I so wish we had found you sooner. The professionalism, competence, fair fees and excellent customer care you give greatly surpasses what we previously experienced with other major legal firms.

Mr. McWilliams and Mrs Bury were very helpful and answered promptly all my enquiries. I would definitely recommend them.
We received an excellent service through your office with a clear explanation about our applications for indefinite leave to remain. Mr. McWilliams is highly recommended.
The clarity and quality of advice given was rated as excellent. Morton Fraser's service and response time was excellent and we would recommend them. We were kept informed throughout the visa process including all changes that occurred. I do not think we could have navigated the application process on our own. With guidance we were able to apply and I have recently received my approved visa. Esther and Stuart made us feel secure in our application process.
We would not hesitate to recommend Morton Fraser whom we have used for immigration and tax matters. Very professional, prompt and pleasant service. One feels well supported throughout right through to a positive outcome.
‘The immigration team at Morton Fraser inspires confidence that they are experts in their field. They explain what has to be done in a clear and concise manner, and they give very practical advice. There are often deadlines to be managed, and they respond very well to these.‘

The issue, on behalf of my Husband who is not able to communicate, was lengthy and somewhat complicated - Stuart McWilliams and his team provided consistent, excellent support to a highly satisfactory conclusion. Thank you
We were very pleased with the advice and expert knowledge from our solicitor. We will definitely use their services again in the future if needed.
"What is especially impressive about this legal practice is their rapid response to queries and their effective resolution of seeming difficulties. They are innovative and able to suggest different approaches to both problem resolution and, if required, funding alternatives. They shine because of two words – they deliver."
