Kingsley Napley is delighted to be a Tech Nation visa partner and looks forward to helping tech visa applicants with their visa requirements at every stage of their UK immigration journey.
Tech Nation enables talented people from around the world to come and work in the UK's digital tech sector, and has been designated by the Home Office to endorse applications for the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa in digital technology.
Our top ranked immigration team is ideally placed to assist the applicants with the best immigration solutions for them, having been at the forefront of UK immigration law for over 20 years.
We regularly engage with Home Office policymakers and actively lobby for our clients' interests. We advise technology businesses and individuals on all aspects of UK immigration law as well as assisting with a global migration strategy for businesses with an existing international profile or who are considering expansion overseas.
Additionally, our specialist tech lawyers in our corporate and commercial team advise early stage companies and startups, as well as established businesses, whose primary assets are their technology. We advise on the key legal issues faced by fast-growing tech businesses, including investment rounds, (angel, VC and private equity); the terms of technology agreements with suppliers and customers; data protection; the exploitation and protection of intellectual property rights; employee share schemes (and all other employment issues); and exits (whether by a merger, acquisition or a listing).
