Awtani Immigration Solicitors are a leading specialist UK Immigration and Nationality law firm founded by Sushma Awtani.
From multinational corporations to high net worth individuals, our immigration professionals provide advice to international organisations, entrepreneurs, small to large sized businesses and private individuals.
Our law firm has been listed on the UK Border Agency website as an approved adviser to prospective sponsors under the employer sponsor licensing scheme. Our pre-application audit processes and procedures have met the UK Border Agency's high and rigorous standards and as a result, by using our firm, the UK Border Agency will not normally duplicate the checks on your application. The UK Border Agency would therefore expect to make decisions on applications supported by one of our documents expeditiously.
We pride ourselves on striving to keep our fees transparent and very competitive. We can agree a fixed fee arrangement with you on most, if not all of our services.
