New immigration legal advisory service at Simpkins & Co

To further extend our range of legal services, Simpkins & Co Solicitors has launched a new Immigration Advisory Service to offer information and advice on immigration issues including residency and citizenship.

Senior lawyer Steve Simpkins said, “We currently do a large amount of legal work with European clients living and working in the UK, including business people and entrepreneurs who are running businesses and employing staff. We have specialist Polish, Hungarian and Romanian speakers within our legal team, so it is a natural progression to broaden our offer to support immigration matters, especially in light of the increased number of enquiries we are receiving in this regard.”
