Osbourne Pinner, a prestigious law firm in London, has made a substantial impact by helping over 1000 UK businesses hire overseas talent through its effective Sponsor Licence service.
Esteemed for its legal prowess, with offices in Piccadilly Circus and Harrow, Osbourne Pinner offers specialized legal services for UK companies aiming to recruit skilled individuals from outside the UK.
Since the 2021 change to the point-based immigration system, the firm’s Sponsor Licence and Skilled Worker Visa service has achieved a stellar 100% success rate in applications, positioning Osbourne Pinner as a leading solicitor in this sector in London.
The firm provides a no-cost 30-minute consultation to evaluate a business’s suitability for a Sponsor Licence and charges only half the fee for any unsuccessful application.
Successful sponsor licence applications empower companies to employ skilled workers from outside the UK, including the EEA, under Tier 2 and Tier 5 visas. These licences are valid for four years and require renewal, granted based on compliance with visa conditions.
For hiring long-term employees, businesses must apply for a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence, ensuring a UK operational base, an effective HR system, and genuine skilled worker job opportunities.
The sponsor licence fee structure varies, with reduced charges of £536 for small businesses and charities, while other organisations pay £1476. Additional charges include the Immigration Skills charge (£1000 per year per worker) and £199 for each Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS).
Led by a team of experts in corporate immigration law, Osbourne Pinner serves a broad spectrum of businesses within the EU and globally.
Osbourne Pinner also assists in renewing Sponsor Licences, a critical step for the continued legal employment of non-EEU workers. Richard advises on maintaining efficient HR systems for hassle-free renewal applications.
Businesses interested in recruiting international talent are encouraged to schedule a free consultation with Osbourne Pinner through their online booking form.
