Our Approach & Track Record

GQ|Littler is the leading employment law firm for employers in the UK and Ireland. We offer risk-based advice and litigation services on employment, immigration, employee tax and incentives issues. We work globally as part of Littler, the world’s largest employment law firm with more than 1,800 lawyers practising across 28 countries in over 100 offices.

What makes us different:

  • Global coverage
  • Extensive contacts, including Home Office and consular, to ensure the best outcomes for clients
  • Partner-led service
  • Market leading expertise

Immigration issues are critical for businesses to ensure that they can bring in the talent they need. The UK is one of the most attractive places to work in the world and many UK businesses rely on being able to recruit talented individuals from all over the globe. The UK has strict immigration laws and Brexit, in particular, will add to the complexity in this area. We can provide the legal advice and support employers need.

We can provide the legal advice and support employers need. Please note that our service is to support businesses with immigration issues. We do not ordinarily provide immigration services to individual members of the public.

Our services include: 

  • Securing/renewing sponsor licences
  • Sole representative visas for senior employees of overseas businesses
  • Specialist support for investors, entrepreneurs and start-ups
  • Immigration audits and training
  • Immigration appeals and reviews
