Nottingham law firm expands with new staff and a new service

A Nottingham law firm is launching a new service and recruiting more staff, to deal with the growing demand from bosses wanting to ensure their businesses are Brexit ready.

OTB Legal is a specialist immigration law firm helping clients with all aspects of immigration law, from assisting national businesses to employ international staff, supporting multi-national companies relocating to the UK and reuniting clients with loved ones.

Now the team is offering a new 20/20 Immigration Health Check service and taking on two new staff members, to help cope with the increase in calls from companies and individuals wanting to make sure they’re fully prepared for Brexit.

Director at OTB Legal Sally McEwen said:

“We are being contacted by bosses and HR teams who are worried about losing their current EU workers and are wanting to know how they can protect them.

“They also want to plan ahead for post January 1st 2021 when the new UK Points Based System will come into force and adjust their recruitment strategy and financial forecasting as required.

“The health check will give them the peace of mind that they are doing everything they need to do legally, and it will guide them through any changes they need to make.”

OTB Legal is currently looking for two paralegals to join the team to support the daily operations and the new service it is offering.

The service, which includes a free initial consultation and a review of the current sponsor licence and immigration systems in place, will leave businesses with a clear action plan of what needs to be done to ensure they are fully compliant.

Sally added:

“With 10 months to go until the free movement ends for EU nationals, my advice to businesses who anticipate recruiting skilled EU workers post January 1st 2021, is to make applying for a sponsor licence their top priority.

“We can assist businesses with this and provide comprehensive training to HR personnel on the sponsor duties imposed by the Home Office as a sponsor licence holder.”

OTB Legal was set up by founding directors Mark Lilley-Tams, Sally McEwen and Aldijana Hoad in April 2019. The award-winning team currently rank in the top ten of over 2000 UK solicitors, with customers ranking them among the best in the profession on Review Solicitor.

They have also achieved a 100 per cent success rate for their clients and are keen to continue to grow the OTB brand and reputation with the launch of new services like the 20/20 Immigration Health Check.
