Recognised as one of the best immigration teams in the UK with over 13 years in the top tier of both Chambers UK and Legal 500.

Kingsley Napley’s immigration team has an established reputation for providing clear and strategic immigration advice, which is tailored for each situation and client. We do more than just process applications – we get personally involved all the way through the process to minimise any stresses that may occur when moving staff and families across the world.

Our experienced and highly ranked team advises both corporate and private clients, including major international organisations, entrepreneurs and investors coming to live and work in the UK, on the routes of immigration available to them and on the UK’s Points Based System. We often help private individuals of substantial means with their complex moves of families and staff to the UK. See also our case studies for recent examples of work.
