Nottingham-based Immigration Law specialist Paragon Law has again been recognised once again as a Tier 1 firm by industry bible The Legal 500.
For 32 years, The Legal 500 has been analysing the capabilities of law firms across the world, with a comprehensive research programme revised and updated every year to bring the most up-to-date vision of the global legal market.
The Legal 500 assesses the strengths of law firms in over 150 jurisdictions and this year’s results are in!
Over the last 12 months, Paragon Law has continued to advise a number of large businesses around Brexit, immigration and people strategy, whilst clients have included one of the largest car manufacturers with plants throughout Europe, two multisite and multinational retailers, both of which are dependent on EU nationals as part of their workforce and clients in the higher education sector.
Paragon Law has also recently acquired Samworth Brothers Limited as a client to support their HR managers with training and support with the transition to a new set of Immigration Rules in anticipation of Free movement of EU nationals ending. A further client win has been the University of Derby.
With Brexit a key factor for every business in the region, the firm has also been active in advising business associations and groups on immigration law and policy and has recently completed a series of workshops in partnership with the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce and Mansfield & Ashfield District Council.
Thalej Vasishta, group CEO at Paragon Law said;
‘We are delighted to be recognised once again for our expertise in Immigration Law by this leading legal authority. The last year has been an incredibly stressful one for any business dealing with the complexities around Brexit, of EU recruitment and the retention staff. Where possible we have advised businesses on how best to manage these changes from an immigration law angle.
‘Despite the economic uncertainty, the UK has continued to see high levels of FDI and in recent months we have advised overseas companies on setting up business in the UK, including a property investment business from Thailand, a fintech recruitment company from India and a paper manufacturer from Dubai.
Alongside Paragon Law’s work within the corporate sector, the firm’s nationally renowned asylum and human rights team remain active with a number of Local Authorities in respect of unaccompanied minors and with charities supporting women and children who have been trafficked to the UK, FGM cases and providing training on asylum issues to the third sector.
