Thank you for your support. Everything was made simple for me and the process very clear. This is the second time I have used Paris Smith for very different reasons and in both instances the service provided was excellent. I cannot recommend them enough and I will definitely use Paris Smith again in the future.
Hattingley Valley Wines has historically utilised experienced overseas vineyard and winery resources at key times of the year such as harvest. Understanding the new rules related to overseas workers following the UK leaving the EU was critical to the business and we turned to Paris Smith to provide advice and guidance. Jane Biddlecombe led this project and provided a clear and concise outline of what we could/couldn’t now do and easy to understand guidance on Visa sponsorship.
My experience with Jane Biddlecombe, Senior Associate has been nothing less than fantastic. As one of her specialties is Visa Applications (in my case US citizen marrying a UK Citizen) she has been an incredible help. With her years of experience in that area, she catches every detail in the paperwork and knows what to add or delete where necessary. As a person, Ms. Biddlecombe has been patient, kind and really cares as sometimes I've been on the verge and she's talked me through. She's not just someone who excels in her field, but she's a wonderful human being. Her combination of skills and self cause me to not only be happy that I've retained her, but that I've gotten to know her.
Jane Biddlecome is, in my opinion, one of the most knowledgeable immigration lawyers. Her professional demeanour toward clients is exceptional. It's a privilege to work with Jane, and I'm certain she's a valuable asset to Paris Smith.
Just wanted to let you know that Jane Biddlecombe has now finalised a settlement agreement with my employers and their income protection insurers and we are very pleased with the result. Jane managed to secure a tax free payment due to my disability and also improved my employer's offer in respect of notice and holiday entitlement. None of these things would have been possible without Jane's sure and steady handling of the case. She had a lot to do in correcting my employer's mistakes on the agreement and it was very much appreciated. We wouldn't hesitate to use your firm again and we will be recommending you to others.
We recently engaged Paris Smith to assist us to obtain a Sponsor Licence and subsequent Tier 2 visas required for our staff members to relocate from our China office to our recently opened UK office. Throughout the process we found the service provided by Jane to be timely, detailed and concise with checks, explanations and cross checks carried out at all stages. The end result was a successful application which led to the Tier 2 visas being issued on time, which from a company owner's point of view was a fantastic result. We also came in around 12% under the allotted budget for the process which has added to our overall satisfaction with the service and advice provided.
Just a quick note to say thank you for the advice you gave us back in October last year. The visa was approved today - as evidenced by the celebrations happening in Dusseldorf! We received zero queries on our application - I’m attributing this to your good advice and us doing the things you said to do six months before the application was made. With many thanks.
The advice received from Paris Smith in respect of immigration matters has been extremely valuable, in particular with the support provided from the team around Tier 2 Sponsorships which was a subject that, as a business, we had little exposure to at the time we were required to apply for this licence; Jane and the team have always provided sound and detailed advice in respect of immigration matters that has ultimately led to issues being resolved in a timely and efficient manner for us as a business.
Jane Biddlecombe was a great help in my application for EU Settled Status. My own attempt to complete the process was rejected. It is harder than it looks. Jane's detailed knowledge of the rules was a great help in selecting documents for a new application and she ensured that I replied within the unknown-to-me time limits. The new application was successful. I highly recommend Jane for anyone navigating UK residence and immigration issues."
Many thanks Jane for your time, it was extremely beneficial for the team. I am impressed by your professional attitude and your unique knowledge of immigration law. I am looking forward to working with you in the future.
