Specialist immigration lawyer and head of department Rose Carey’s proudest moment of 2019 was winning three cases that other lawyers deemed unwinnable. She recalls to Spear’s:‘With the help of one of my associates, I successfully secured visas for three clients with difficult cases where mistakes had been made by their previous advisers in the past. Knowing that we had made a difference to their lives was very rewarding.’ As one client attests, she is renowned for her ‘intimate knowledge of the immigration rules.’
‘When a long-term client named their daughter after me, it made me realise how important trusted advisers are to clients,’ says Carey, who’s described by clients as ‘clear, practical and highly responsive’.
Clients have included a Chinese entrepreneur who owns a vegetarian restaurant chain, a Hollywood film producer, a Middle Eastern princess, an Olympic fencer and a leading paediatric neurosurgeon from Asia, which makes for interesting work.
Carey also notes that, despite the effects of Brexit, international families and investors remain keen to relocate to the UK for its excellent education facilities and the strength and global reputation of English law. Investor visas also continue to be popular, despite recent government announcements in this area.
A sCarey explains, ‘Emigrating to the UK is no longer the sole reason why clients have thought to get an investor visa. Other reasons include seeing the UK as a good place to invest and as a way to diversify portfolios.’
