Rhona was recognised in the Legal 500 rankings for 2022 as a “Key Lawyer” for her business and personal immigration arrangements expertise.
As part of our new website launch, we would like to reintroduce you to our team. Today’s post features our Head of Business Immigration, Rhona Azir. Rhona is a former newspaper journalist who embarked on her legal studies and career in 2009.
Now a dual-qualified Solicitor and Chartered Legal Executive in England and Wales, Rhona works remotely from Milton Keynes but assists clients and travels to meetings throughout the country.
Rhona’s role involves helping businesses and high-net-worth individuals navigate the rules relating to obtaining a visa to invest in, setting up a business, employing migrant workers, or working in the UK. Colleagues have described her as a “safe pair of hands” for combining attention to detail with knowledge gained through almost ten years of immigration experience.
The highlight of her career has been assisting a young client with a discretionary application to remain in the UK to access necessary cancer treatment and being listed as a “Key Lawyer” in the Legal 500 rankings for 2022 for business and personal immigration.
Also a budding advocate, Rhona aims to qualify as a solicitor advocate and is looking forward to getting more involved with the firm’s immigration litigation work.
Rhona has two young children and loves taking them for walks to the many lakes and nature reserves in Milton Keynes. She enjoys ice skating, ballet, learning languages, and looking into the history of her Trinidadian and Indian heritage.
