Osbourne Pinner, a distinguished law firm in London, has successfully supported over 1000 UK businesses in recruiting international employees, leveraging its effective Sponsor Licence service.
Known for its legal excellence, the firm operates from Piccadilly Circus and Harrow, offering specialised legal services to assist UK companies in hiring skilled personnel from outside the UK.
The firm’s Sponsor Licence and Skilled Worker Visa service have been highly successful, especially since the shift to the point-based immigration system in 2021, achieving a 100% success rate in Sponsor Licence applications. This accomplishment has made Osbourne Pinner a prominent solicitor in this field in the London area.
Osbourne Pinner offers a complimentary 30-minute consultation to assess eligibility for a Sponsor Licence, charging only half the fee if an application is unsuccessful.
Approved sponsor licence applications enable firms to recruit skilled individuals from outside the UK, including the EEA, for Tier 2 and Tier 5 visas. These licences, lasting four years, are renewable, provided all visa conditions are adhered to.
A Tier 2 Sponsor Licence, necessary for hiring long-term staff, requires a UK base, an efficient HR system, and evidence of genuine skilled worker job opportunities.
Sponsor licence fee structures for sponsor licences are £536 for small businesses and charities, and £1476 for other organisations. Additional costs include the Immigration Skills charge (£1000 per worker per year) and £199 per Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS).
Osbourne Pinner’s adept team of corporate immigration solicitors caters to a diverse range of businesses, both within the EU and internationally.
The firm also assists with Sponsor Licence renewals, vital for the legal sponsorship of non-EEU workers. Richard advises firms to ensure efficient HR systems for smooth renewal processes.
Osbourne Pinner extends free consultations to businesses interested in hiring international talent, with booking available through their website.
