Firm Overview:
Founded in 2007, with offices in Manchester and Liverpool, Latitude Law has grown steadily to become one of the largest specialist UK-inbound immigration firms in the English regions. Its work encompasses the full range of corporate and high net worth private client instruction, with particular focus on sponsor licensing for SMEs, employment across tiers 2 and 5, sole representatives of overseas business, and the global talent and innovator visa categories. Despite global economic challenges Latitude Law continues to see high demand for immigration expertise from its high net worth clientele. Latitude Law is instructed across the entire range of visa categories, supporting entrepreneurs and investors looking to relocate themselves and their businesses to the UK.

Main Areas of Practice:
Sponsor Licensing for SMEs: While licensing and tier 2 visa work is a staple of every commercial immigration practice, Latitude’s focus has always been the particular challenges the points-based system raises for small and medium businesses. Latitude Law has particular expertise in advising consortia taking over existing UK companies, seeking to relocate senior personnel from overseas into the newly-acquired business.
Key Clients: Eamar Developments (Saudi property multinational); Knowcross Solutions (Indian software house)

Religious Organisations:
This specialism has become an important niche for Latitude. It is an unusual area of practice, requiring in-depth knowledge of the very specific rules and guidance applicable. Latitude Law has assisted with recruitment at all levels, from volunteers to Bishops, across tiers 2 and 5 of the points-based system, and have genuine expertise in this area.
Key Clients: Salesians of Don Bosco; Congregation of the Passion of Christ (both closed Catholic religious orders)
