Siobhan is a Senior Manager and Solicitor based in our London office where she currently manages a team of solicitors and paralegals, and is the lead solicitor for several major corporate clients, providing strategic immigration advice and support. She has a lengthy history sitting on several working groups with the UKVI, where she represented the interests of clients and assisted the UKVI in drafting various policies following implementation of the Points Based System (“PBS”). She provides tactical advice on client immigration sponsor obligations and compliance concerns and organises audit checks for clients to help ensure that reporting and recordkeeping is robust, and illegal working checks are infallible.
