About Me

I advise employers on all aspects of immigration law under the Points Based System, including sponsorship issues. Examples of recent work include helping a multi-national company transfer senior personnel to the UK under intra-company transfer arrangements, assisting an international law firm with secondments, and facilitating a global advertising agency’s hiring of foreign national Senior Creatives to work on major ad campaigns in the UK. I have also recently advised start-up companies on the visa routes for Entrepreneurs and for Representatives of Overseas Businesses. 

In particular, I advise employers on compliance with the UK Border Agency’s Prevention of Illegal Working regime; I provide HR Teams with bespoke training on this and many other topics. I also work with co-counsel to facilitate the global movement of staff.

 I resolve some of the more complex immigration issues for individuals. For example, the recent case of a high net worth individual and his family wanting to come to the UK to set up an Olympics-related business required expertise and creativity: I was able to register his wife as a British Citizen, which enabled him to apply for a spousal settlement visa; I also obtained a UK ancestry visa for his daughter through her UK-born grandmother, which enabled the daughter’s husband to accompany her to the UK as a dependant spouse. I have helped several individuals obtain settlement, sometimes outside of the Immigration Rules.  The Legal 500 (2010) includes the following client opinion of my work: ‘Anita de Atouguia “instills complete confidence”’.   

The Legal 500 (2015) states: "Senior associate Anita de Atouguia is 'very knowledgeable'."
