Fozia Iqbal

Senior Business Immigration Solicitor

Get in touch

Fozia has been practising in the field of immigration law for over 20 years, specialising in Business Immigration since 2015. Fozia has advised an array of businesses, from start-ups to multinationals, owner-managed businesses through to SMEs, as well as individuals looking for immigration solutions. With a range of experience across the board, it is unusual for her to come across an immigration issue that she cannot tackle. 

I enjoy being able to help my clients navigate the technical immigration rules and assist with finding solutions to their workforce problems, especially in an area of law which is fast-moving and regularly changes.

Having dealt with a wide range of businesses in a variety of sectors - including technology, media, manufacturing, petroleum, and luxury goods - I am keenly aware of the issues that matter to busy HR managers and business owners. I always try to ensure that I can support clients in a way that makes their roles as easy as possible.

I believe that lawyers should aim to provide their clients with clear, straightforward advice and enable clients to make confident decisions about what is best for their employees and businesses.

Fozia regularly advises businesses on obtaining and maintaining sponsor licences, sponsoring workers to work in the UK, assisting with immigration compliance and right-to-work issues and audits. She can also provide training to HR teams and advise individuals on their immigration options when looking to relocate to the UK.  

Fozia lives in Manchester and loves learning about different cultures, travelling to far-flung destinations and learning foreign languages. She speaks fluent Urdu, and some basic Russian, French and Arabic.
