Corporate Immigration Solicitors
Aston Brooke provides corporate immigration support to businesses, educational establishments and individuals. Our team has been consistently ranked as a leader in this area.
As the immigration rules have become more complex legally, we have made it our business to ensure that our advice covers more than an outline of options. We use our global experience, knowledge and contacts to solve problems for our clients by being proactive and, when required, tough with the authorities, delivering our work within cost expectations and ensuring that we are accessible to our clients as each one of our clients is important to us.
Our business immigration team has a wealth of experience between them; the understanding of the workings and procedures of the UK immigration service combined with the detailed knowledge of the legal technicalities relating to immigration law means that there is nothing our business immigration team has not dealt with. This application of practical and legal skills guarantees that our clients receive a pragmatic, efficient service with advice tailored to the individual needs of each client.
Our team has been praised for the level of personal attention that we give to our clients and our innovative approach.

Prevention of illegal working:
Once employers in the United Kingdom obtain a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence from the Home Office to sponsor and employ migrants they are required to strictly comply with each and every aspect of the Home Office: Tier 2 and 5: Guidance for Sponsors.
Any failures by the Tier 2 Sponsors to strictly comply with the Home Office: Tier 2 and 5: Guidance for Sponsors after an announced/unannounced compliance visit or otherwise can lead to potentially various adverse consequences including (but not limited to):
(i) Downgrading of a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence from A-Rating to B-Rating
(ii) Suspension of a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence
(iii) Revocation of a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence.
It will be imperative for the Tier 2 Sponsors affected by such adverse decisions made by the Home Office to challenge them within the requisite strict timeframes which can range from anything between 10 working days to three months to legally challenge them via, for example, Written Representations, Pre-Action Protocol Letter or Judicial Review.
If you as a Tier 2 Sponsor are faced with such difficulties with your Tier 2 Sponsor Licence then for specific legal advice on your case please contact Aston Brooke Solicitors on 0203 475 4321 and a member of our team will be able to assist you.
We can advise employers on what measures they need to adopt to help prevent them from employing those that are not eligible to work in the UK. This will help prevent employers incurring a Civil Penalty of up to £10,000 per illegal worker.
