This is a critical time for many businesses and individuals, as they attempt to navigate immigration and compliance issues in the wake of disruption to travel, business and migration resulting from Covid-19 and the knock-on effects on workplace and workforce management. I look forward to collaborating with my new colleagues as we guide our clients in the face of these emerging challenges, and to contribute to the continued success and growth of the firm.'
