Despite the domestic population being more educated and skilled than ever before, a high proportion of low and high-skilled workers are still required by the UK (with work permits) from overseas to undertake such roles. In times of uncertainty, meticulous legal planning is therefore, more crucial.
At Stoke White, we offer tailored advice to guide and protect businesses in the UK, Europe, and the US. Our lawyers can support the employment life cycle of a business, immigration status of employees and investigate complex employment law claims.
Our lawyers work closely with human resources professionals across several industries to keep on top of a range of issues arising in employment and immigration. The department offers all employment and immigration legal support from recruitment to dismissal, international transfers, domestic and international acquisition and outsourcing.
