Natasha is a Partner and solicitor based in our London office. She has worked in UK immigration law for over 15 years and advises on all aspects of UK immigration, including the Points Based System (PBS).

Natasha manages several key corporate immigration accounts for leading investment banks, media companies and IT companies. In recent times, and as clients have become increasingly concerned of their status because of Brexit, this is an area of high growth in our team and Natasha has been responsible for developing guidance and best practice in this area. 

Natasha also oversees our London-based private client team and has a particular focus on naturalisation matters for high net worth individuals, in addition to settlement and EU settled status applications. 

Prior to joining Fragomen, Natasha was a solicitor at another law firm, where she practiced immigration, asylum, human rights and public law. She gained extensive litigation experience, preparing appeals to the Immigration and Asylum Tribunal, claims for judicial review and appeals to the Court of Appeal and European Court of Human Rights.

Natasha is an in-demand speaker as her technical knowledge is second to none. She is a frequent speaker and panelist at various seminars and corporate events in the UK including the London Totally Expat Show FEM Global Mobility Summit and BFI’s Employer’s Immigration Compliance Conference. Recent engagements include webcasts with the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) and UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI).
