Tech start-ups hail new talent visa as 'step in right direction' - Katie Newbury quoted by The Telegraph

8 March 2021

Katie Newbury, Partner in our Immigration team, was quoted in The Telegraph hard copy and other sources including Financial News and The Private Equity News on 3 and 4 March 2021. Katie was commenting on the unsponsored highly skilled visa route and how the new visa scheme should fulfil the technology sectors' requirements in order to support the UK’s economic recovery.

"We are mindful the Government previously announced a plan to introduce an unsponsored highly skilled visa route, so this is not in and of itself a new idea,"  says Katie.

We hope the detail lives up to the promise of ambitious change and that the new arrangements are introduced swiftly," she continues.

Katie has also been quoted in The Financial News and The Private Equity News (subscriptions required).
