Business Immigration

All UK employers have a duty to prevent illegal migrants working in the UK. The Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006 sets out the law.

We offer legal advice and services to check that prospective emplyee has the correct eligibility to work in the UK in place before starting or extending employment plus carry out other regular checks.

The UKVI requires a number of roles to be allocated to the emplyer's organisation in order to operate the skilled worker licence via the SMS.

Generally, the Home Office requires the employer 's organisation to meet the following obligations:

  1. Monitor Immigration Status - employers must ensure that the appriopriate right to work checks are carried out on all new employees and before extensions of employment are made, regardless of their nationality before they start work.
  2. Maintain MIgrant Contatc Details - employers are required to keep up to date personal contact details for all their sponsored workers.
  3. Record Keeping - employers are also required to keep certain documents relating to the employment of tier 2 employees for the duration of thier sponsorship.
  4. Track and Monitor - employers must also report certain information on sponsored employees on the Home Office online sponsorship management system (SMS), in most cases within 10 working day.

We will add value at every stage and help you solve your problems quickly with a minimum of fuss.

We also offer fixed-fee initial consultations. At your consultation we will help in providing all the information you need to understand the legal and practical issues relating to your case. 

The purpose of our consultation is to allow you to make an informed decision about what action you need to take.

We have prepared an Instruction Form (copies available on request, or click here) to help you to give us the information and documents that we need. Following receipt of your instructions and reviewing your case, the first step we must take on your behalf is to write to the Debtor, telling them that Court proceedings will be issued against them if the debt is not paid within 30 days (or 14 days for corporate debtors). If you have received a Lawyer’s letter, we will respond on your behalf telling them we have been instructed to deal with the matter.

The Courts actively discourage the issue of proceedings without such a letter being sent first. We aim to send the letter out on the day that your instructions reach us, and if you give us an email address or a fax number for the Debtor /Lawyer then the letter will be sent by email or fax  and where appropriate by post. It will be copied to you.

Will Drafting

At Frantz Gregory & Co, our Will Writing service is a vital part of our practice.

We will provide straightforward advice no jargon. We are prompt and efficient and at a competitive price.

My dad once said to me, why do you have a Will? You are too young to have one. Regrettably, he died without making a Will. Everyone should make a Will and without one, the Law decides who should inherit your property, which can be a shock to a bereaving family.

It is important to seek legal advice to draft and execute your Will to avoid getting things wrong. If you already have a Will, it is important to review it when required.

Some of the circumstances when you should consider updating your Will are:

  • You are cohabiting with a new partner and wish to make provision for them.
  • You jointly own a property and wish to choose who should have your share of the property after your death.
  • You have a partner but are not married and wish to make provision for them.
  • You have married since your Will was drafted. Unless you referred to your marriage plans in your current Will, your subsequent marriage will invalidate the Will.
  • You have divorced since your Will was drafted. Unlike marriage, divorce does not invalidate your Will, but it cancels any mention in it of your former wife, husband, or civil partner. Therefore, any provision you have made for them will lapse.
  • You have new children or grandchildren who are not included in your Will.
  • Your estate has changed in value since your Will was drafted.
  • You have fallen out with your beneficiaries or executors or they have died.
  • You are now a single parent and wish to appoint a guardian for your children.

Workplace Investigation

Workplace investigations should be independently and properly conducted to avoid a claim at an Employment Tribunal costing an employer thousands of pounds.

Our team of specialist employment Solicitor and professionals provide a fully comprehensive independent workplace investigation covering all aspects of workplace disputes such as allegations of bullying, harassment, grievance, and disciplinary matter to ACAS standards.

When we conduct investigations, we will draw independent conclusions and recommendations based on facts. We focus on giving you clarity so that you are able to make informed decisions on how to proceed. It is obvious that an independently conducted workplace investigation will reduce the likelihood of any claim succeeding in an Employment Tribunal.
