Thalej Vasishta Discusses UK immigration Policy


(PRWeb UK) January 10, 2011

Paragon Law, a rapidly growing UK-based legal firm specializing in immigration laws, has opened a new office in Jermyn Street, London. The firm’s immigration lawyers and solicitors now offer a broad range of immigration services in four offices worldwide — London; Nottingham; Shanghai, China; and Ludhiana, India.

Thalej Vasishta, Managing Director and Senior Solicitor at Paragon Law said “2010 has been a very good year for Paragon Law. We were instructed to act by two of the UK’s largest employers who between them employ 36,000 people in the UK in order to set up systems and procedures to ensure that both of these companies remained compliant in employing foreign migrants. We were also instructed to act by Changan Automobile which is the second largest car manufacturer in China in respect of their inward investment project to set up a UK Subsidiary and transfer their key senior management to the UK to progress the UK operations”.

Mr Vasishta went on to say that in 2010 the UK saw many changes to immigration laws and policies, with a lot more changes coming in 2011. He said “there are many positives that have come out of the recent consultation that the UK Government carried out in respect of introducing a cap to the number of non-European nationals who are allowed to come to the UK for employment. In particular the Government has listened to UK PLC and in fact will be increasing the number of certificates that will be allocated to businesses by 8,000 in April 2011 in comparison to the number that was issued for the same period in the previous year”.

There were also positive announcements by the Government to encourage inward investment to the UK and Mr Vasishta said “it can only benefit the UK to encourage overseas entrepreneurs, businesses and investors to choose the UK as the place to commence their European operations”.

In this regard, opening a London office was a natural progression for Paragon Law. Mr Vasishta said “when visiting our offices in India and China and meeting with local business people there, it is apparent that London is still the preferred choice of destination for overseas investors and entrepreneurs when considering the UK”.

Paragon Law’s Shanghai office was retained as PR advisors to the London ZED Pavilion at the recent Shanghai Expo. Mr Vasishta said “Paragon Law were looking forward to continue to develop the relationships that had started at the Shanghai Expo with organisations such as UK Trade & Industry and Think London to not only promote London as a destination for business but to also advise businesses in the South East who were looking to trade, invest or find partners in emerging markets such as India and China, where Paragon Law are well established”.

The firm’s head office is based in Nottingham and in addition Paragon Law also have offices in Shanghai (China) and Ludhiana (India). The new Jermyn Street, London offices will be headed up by Solicitor Kelvin Tanner who has previously spent four years at the firm’s head office. Mr Tanner said “I am very excited about the potential that Paragon Law has in London, we come as a firm which has established a national reputation in immigration law advice and I look forward to extending our specialist services to the people and businesses of the London region”.

Founded in 2003, Paragon Law has a global staff of over 55 and has been recognised nationally by its peers as the Legal Team of the Year and the Best Legal Practice for Promoting Diversity amongst its staff. Mr Vasishta has been awarded Solicitor of the Year on three occasions by the Nottinghamshire Law Society; the firm was awarded Business of the Year sponsored by Business Link in 2009 in the same year that Mr Vasishta was a finalist in the same awards for Young Businessperson of the

Year.

Paragon Law is recognised as a leading immigration law practice by legal directories such as the Legal 500 and the Chambers and Partners Directory describes Paragon Law as an “Immigration Law Powerhouse”.
