    Immigration law is both complex and continuously in flux. The Home Office has over the last 3 years made annual major changes to UK immigration law.

    With Ivon’s experience, up-to-date knowledge of the law and understanding of the mind-set of the Home Office, he is able to focus on the issues and prepare the client’s application in a way which maximises prospects of success.

    Ivon trained at O’Keefe Solicitors, which at that time was one of the largest and probably the most well-regarded immigration law firms in London.

    Ivon’s clients are primarily high-net-worth individuals from sport, music, theatre, film and the entertainment industry. He regularly provides guidance to UK universities on the assistance they offer their students regarding student visas, extensions and reviews.

    Ivon also advises companies on obtaining sponsorship licences, on managing their obligations to the Home Office, and on transferring workers to the UK.

    With an impressive reputation in immigration law, Ivon is often approached by other solicitor firms seeking advice for their own clients, and regularly travels to attend clients in Russia, United Arab Emirates, India, China, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and the USA.
