If you have a client with an immigration matter, then Truth Legal can help you, to help your client.
Immigration is a niche area of law that is constantly changing. Maintaining expertise in immigration is a full-time job. Unlike most law firms, we have a dedicated team focused purely on immigration. We have developed close links with several law firms and work with them in two main ways:
Instructing Truth Legal as specialist immigration consultants
You might want to keep your client in respect of their immigration matter, whilst retaining us for specialist advice, as and when you need. In this case, we will act as specialist immigration consultants for you, our client.
Immigration law can cross over into other areas, most commonly employment law. Perhaps you are an employment lawyer that wants to assist your client with a sponsor licence application but are not fully confident about the application process. In this example, our immigration specialists would be available to help you navigate this tricky area. What is a complex immigration matter for you, is routine for us: sponsor licence applications are one of our main areas of work.
If you set up a retainer with Truth Legal, you can ask targeted questions and access our wealth of knowledge, in a way which can be surprisingly cost-effective.
Benefits of retaining us as immigration specialists
You keep full control of your client
Ask us targeted, specific questions around immigration and we will advise you efficiently and effectively
Under our guidance you can master this area in your own right (so next time you might not need us)
Referring your client to us
Alternatively, you might wish simply to refer your client to us, in respect of their immigration matter. We will then enter a retainer with your client in respect of their immigration matter.
If you refer your client to us, you have our word that we will not try and entice your client into taking other legal services from us. We are happy to enter a formal non-approaching agreement if desired, although you can be assured that our good relations and reputation with other firms hinges on us being good for our word.
Benefits of referring your client to us
You can leave your client in the safe hands of genuine immigration experts
You have our guarantee we will not try to entice your client into other areas of law
Avoid this complex, everchanging and time-consuming area of law!
