Efficient Sponsorship Process

Sponsor Licence Application Assistance

If you plan to recruit overseas workers, securing a sponsor licence is essential. Our immigration lawyers are here to provide comprehensive guidance throughout the sponsorship licence application process. We focus on good communication, swift responses, and practical solutions tailored to your specific requirements.

Compliance and Right to Work Checks

Ensuring Legal Compliance

When hiring overseas employees, it’s crucial for employers to verify their right to work in the UK. Employing illegal workers is a criminal offence and can lead to hefty fines of up to £20,000 per illegal worker. At Davenport Solicitors, we assist businesses in conducting right to work checks to ensure compliance with Home Office requirements.
