Our immigration lawyers were approached by a well-established Architectural practice that needed advice in respect of retaining a young graduate employee. The practice had hired him after significant search period for the position of Assistant Architect. However, his Tier 4 visa was expiring shortly and the client was understandably worried that they were going to lose a valuable employee.
The client had a long history of providing Architectural services to high-end clients, having created a name for the practice that was at risk of being compromised due to skill shortage.
Our team had a detailed discussion with the client to identify whether other solutions apart from being sponsored under Tier 2 (general) route where available to the migrant. After ruling out the availability of other options, the team proceeded to assess the matter in respect of the Sponsor Licence.
Our business immigration lawyers understood all too well the importance of securing the Licence for this particular client. There was a present and acute need for the client to secure the Licence otherwise his business would suffer significant losses, both in immediate business and in image.
