In this particular case our client is a cyber security company which amongst other services provides training. The company is still a relatively young company.
The company is planning to open up an Academy with universities in the UK as well as companies from around the world.
As part of their programme, the company had invited delegates from abroad to attend training. The three delegates had been to the United Kingdom previously as visitors. Although ultimately complying with their visitor visas, the delegates stayed longer than initially planned in light of the fact that there were other important events that required their participation.
Consequently, when the delegates applied for visitor visas once more in 2018, all three delegates were refused as the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) doubted their intentions as to whether or not they were genuine visitors. The main thrust behind the ECO’s conclusion was the fact that the delegates had remained in the United Kingdom longer than initially explained in their application forms.
Our Immigration solicitors were instructed by this client to represent the delegates in a new application in January 2019. As part of the application, we explained the significance of the training events as well as establishing the delegates’ clear intention to return.
The delegates were each issued with new visitor visas in the first instance. These training events were crucial to the company’s growth, so much so that our client has instructed Reiss Edwards to represent them in an application for a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence. The company’s vision is to recruit leading experts in Cyber Security in order to provide training as well as to proceed with training the next generation of students.
Reiss Edwards is proud to represent companies which represent the community. Cyber-crime is increasing year on year and companies and individuals will need to become ever vigilant as technology improves and therefore at risk of being abused.
Cyber-crime can cause significant financial and emotional damage and Reiss Edwards is therefore proud to work with companies which seeks to promote and empower the next generation to ensure they have the knowledge to protect themselves and/or their companies from such harmful consequences.
Further, Reiss Edwards is proud to represent smaller companies who are seeking to grow and expand. Immigration is becoming increasingly important to companies in order to grow and expand and we are excited to assist and represent smaller or younger companies in their goals where we can.
This client is an educational institution which offers both Further and Higher Educational courses. One the College’s essential teachers (the Applicant) required work sponsorship in order to continue teaching at the College. This course had already commenced and therefore the College were concerned with the implications of some of the courses that the Applicant taught if they were unable to find a replacement or secure his Tier 2 work visa.
As part of the Tier 2 work sponsorship process, in the majority of cases, a Sponsor is expected to advertise the vacancy for at least 28 days. This is in order to satisfy the Home Office that they have genuinely tried to fill the vacancy with someone who holds British nationality, European nationality or those who hold settlement status in the United Kingdom. This is known as the ‘Resident Labour Market Test’ or RLMT.
The Home Office have strict guidelines on how the RLMT must be conducted. The College unfortunately in their rush to submit the application and did not appreciate the importance of these guidelines. Consequently, the College’s application to sponsor the Applicant in October 2019 which was refused in November 2019.
We were contacted and instructed by the College on an emergency. An application for sponsorship (known as a Certificate of Sponsorship or CoS) for those on the visa that the Applicant’s held must be submitted by the 5th of a month in order to potentially receive sponsorship in the same month. Reiss Edwards was instructed by the College on 5 December 2019. Given the concerns expressed by the College as to the disruptions on their courses if the Applicant were forced to leave the United Kingdom, we agreed to represent the College on an emergency basis.
The CoS application was submitted on time and was issued in December 2019.
We thereafter represented the Applicant with his Tier 2 work visa application which was granted in January 2020.
No doubt, everyone appreciates that teaching staff is extremely important to educating children and young adults. Good teachers can often be very challenging for educational institutions – even more so when they require sponsorship to be able to be employed.
Our immigration solicitors were therefore extremely eager to assist the College in rectifying the mistakes made in their previous application and to ensure the existing students at the College were not disrupted in their education. This was the reason why we agreed to take on emergency instructions from the College in order to essentially submit the Certificate of Sponsorship application on the same day as instructions.
The Applicant being issued with his work visa also means that the College is now able to confidently offer the same courses for future students to enjoy and prosper from.
It's a shame that you dont have an 'Excellent' star rating on here, as my experience with Reiss Edwards is nothing short of an excellent rating. They handled my application for an Indefinite Leave to remain in April 2014 and did my husband's one very recently including my daughter. Every time i have approached them, they have continued to treat me with courtesy, respect and patience. Amar was indeed a very thorough and professional gentleman. He is very knowledgeable, corporative and engaging. He responded to my emails, calls and enquiries promptly. He was always reassuring. I could not have asked for a better Immigration service. I would recommend them over and over again for anyone looking for an immigration advice. They gave me a free immigration advice when i called them, and the quality of the advice was something other charge thousands for. If you need a particular, name, Amar would be it. He exemplifies, for me, the true, professional gentleman. He is a valuable asset to Reiss Edwards.
I am glad that i instructed Reiss Edwards on my visa matter. It started with a 20 minutes free immigration advice. I met with Amar to discuss my ILR refusal. He gave me a great deal of quality advice and decided to take on my messy case. I had doubts on the merits of my case by he was relatively convinced he could win it. That made me quite secure. To be honest, things did not start as quick as I would have wanted, but they kept on communicating the process and state of things to me.A big thank you to Verusha and Foram. They were also very helpful. Brilliant and informative. Their fee was fair and reasonable, especially if you compare them to other law firms and immigration law firms in London; some of whom even told me that i would not be able to get an indefinte leave to remain in this country. The process was long but was worth it. In the end, a big thank you to Reiss Edwards.
Investing over 2 million pounds is defintely not a routine decision. We had to make sure that the Tier 1 investor immigration lawyers that we'd be picking has to be one of the best within the Tier 1 investor category. We contacted Reiss Edwards and they were able to get us not only the Tier 1 investor visa but also suggested profitable investment portfolios in addition to what we already had in mind.
TI have just had British Citizenship application approved. Prior to making the application, i was not sure which law firm i should hire to facilitate the paperwork. After a few hours of research, i decided to go with Reiss Edwards and i must confess that i wasnt disappointed. The immigration lawyers at Reiss Edwards handled my case well and they really knew what they were doing. They were fully aware of what documents I needed and it was easy for them to tell if my case was going to be easy or not. At the end of the day, I have not received my British citizenship within 3 months. If anyone is looking for a good immigration lawyer to handle thier case, contact Reiss Edwards.
My wife's spouse visa extension application was refused by the Home Office and they gave her 14 days to leave the country. We contacted Reiss Edwards and they said "OK don't worry we will sort this out". They put together the list of documents for me to obtain and they prepared a bundle which was as thick as the printer it came out from.We followed everything they asked us to do and in the end we won our appeal and got our spouse visa. We can't recommend them enough and we have promised ourselves never to make any more UK visa applications without them.
The team of lawyers at Reiss Edwards are very professional and friendly people. Their experience in and around UK immigration law is quite extensive; be sure that you application is in safe and competent hands. My immigration matter was an indefinite leave to remain application based on Tier 1 on a self-employment basis. The immigration lawyers at Reiss Edwards made sure that the application was perfect and ready to be accepted. I got a positive decision and I recommend them highly for anyone who needs a UK immigration help.
I contacted Reiss Edwards to help me with my wife's UK settlement visa. They acted with utmost professionalism throughout the entire application. I spoke with Joe Dinh, he is an immigration solicitor and he is one of the best solicitors out there. He ensured that there was little to no room for error. At some point I thought he was over cautious. He remained calmed and continued to assure us on our immigration matter. Most people in his position would have panicked but he was calmed and continued to assure us. We received out positive outcome very quickly.
I have been using Reiss Edwards for three years now for my family's immigration application. Both for my initial application and extension. They are really affordable. The team of solicitors at this firm are probably one of the most efficient and economical in terms of cost. They offered free advice over the phone and spent good time with us before inviting us for consultation.
Reiss Edwards is a top notch immigration service company. The way they handled our documentation and also the list of documents they sent was efficient and top quality. They helped us professionally throughout the process. We are very happy with the immigration advice we received from the team. We highly recommend them.
I used Reiss Edwards immigration lawyers to assist with my immigration matter and that of my family. It was an EX1 application. They dealt with the matter properly and even when complications were coming up from the Home Office, they helped resolve the issue properly. They are very professional and are very popular in London. I am happy to have worked with them.
This is the only firm that i spoke with that didn't ask for money before listening to me, will be using them again.
I used Reiss Edwards for my Tier 2 visa application and it was successful. The team was ever present and happy to answer my question. The caseworker that dealing with my case went on holiday yet by case did not suffer one bit. Another lawyer stepped and took over the case without any hassle.
My Tier 1 Investor Visa was dealt with quickly and without issue. Would recommend Reiss Edwards as an Immigration law firm in London. Thank you to the team.
