Europe offering a range of tax reliefs to give flexibility to both domestic and international companies. It is a top-rated major

Testimonials

a meticulous and consummate professional

“Nicola is meticulous and a consummate professional! I was the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of CybSafe, a rapidly growing cybersecurity technology business based in Canary Wharf when we worked together. In several cases, we required specific skill sets that were not readily available in the UK. The daunting task of obtaining a sponsor licence and the subsequent Skilled Worker visas for several IT-related roles was made virtually effortless by Nicola. You will have to look long and hard to find someone who will deliver the level of service that Nicola provides. She remains on speed dial for all my sponsor licence and Skilled Worker visa needs.”

I cannot recommend Nicola highly enough

“We have worked with Nicola on multiple occasions over the last decade. Nicola is always our go to regarding any UK work visa matters for our employees, and potential employees, from other countries. From an outsider’s perspective, the process of getting work visas can be incredibly intimidating and off-putting for UK employers without experience in the area. Nicola has always made the whole process completely painless and it would be fair to say that there are employees at Dlala who have only had the opportunity to work with the studio thanks to the work Nicola put in to not only helping us through the process but to help us understand the process. Nicola fits in as if she is a member of the team and I can’t imagine ever using anyone else to help us with the UK visa process. I cannot recommend Nicola highly enough and I can say with 100% assurance that Dlala will be looking to work with Nicola moving forward.”

Extremely helpful and highly professional throughout the entire application

“After my graduation from university, Nicola, along with my employer, took my immigration matter into her hands and helped me to obtain my Skilled Worker visa. Even though we had to operate to a very tight deadline, I found Nicola extremely helpful and highly professional throughout the entire application process. Her expertise in the UK immigration space and attention to detail are second to none! I would highly recommend Nicola to anyone looking for immigration law services and expert support.”

Above and beyond what we could have asked for

“I was lucky enough to have Nicola’s assistance with the UK visa applications for myself and my wife on two occasions. First, with our visa applications to enter the UK for a work opportunity which I was offered and second, to extend our stay in the UK. The guidance, knowledge, patience and hard work which Nicola offered was above and beyond what we could have asked for or expected. Nicola’s navigation throughout each of the processes was absolutely invaluable. I cannot recommend Nicola enough for her immigration services!”
