UK Immigration: Now and the future” 

James Perrott – Senior Counsel - Macfarlanes

James provides strategic immigration advice to companies in various sectors and supports UK start-ups in relation to the Tier 2 Sponsor Licence regime. As well as assisting with the full process from the initial Sponsor Licence application itself through to obtaining visas for non-EEA employees, he also advises on compliance with the Points Based System and the illegal working legislation.  In addition, he assists organisations in their discussions with the Home Office following the threat of, or actual, downgrading / suspension of their sponsor licences, ensuring they retain the ability to sponsor non-EEA workers.

James has successfully assisted high-net-worth clients with Tier 1 (Investor), Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) and Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) applications as well as complex family, permanent residence and naturalisation applications. James is renowned for troubleshooting difficult situations, often persuading the UK Home Office to exercise discretion and approve applications where they do not fully satisfy the relevant requirements.

James regularly advises on European Free Movement matters, with an emphasis on Brexit-related issues, and UK outbound immigration applications.

James has also worked with representative organisations in submitting immigration policy recommendations to UK Government departments.

As well as being a regular conference speaker, he writes articles for leading publications and has been quoted in the national press.

James is a co-convenor of the Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association Economic Migration Working Group.
