In today’s global business landscape, the ability to hire the right talent, often from across borders, is key to your business’s growth and success. Navigating the complexities of immigration laws can be challenging, but understanding and adhering to these laws is crucial for maintaining compliance and operational efficiency.

Securing the appropriate sponsorship licenses for hiring international workers is a delicate and vital process. Mistakes or oversights in this area can lead to significant setbacks, such as application rejections or compliance issues. It’s important to have a process that’s straightforward and reliable, ensuring your business remains compliant and focused.

We offer a range of services designed to keep your business compliant and ahead of the curve:

  • When it comes to applying for UK Sponsor Licences or sponsoring skilled workers from abroad, navigating the intricacies of these applications is essential. We provide guidance and support prior to and during the application process which allows you to concentrate on your core business activities without being sidetracked by complex legal requirements.
  • Tailored training for your HR team, to equip them with knowledge about their roles and responsibilities, keeping up with reporting duties, effectively using the Sponsorship Management System, preparing for Home Office inspections, understanding compliance penalties, and identifying eligible Skilled Workers for hiring.
  • Carrying out mock compliance visits to ensure your systems and processes align with immigration and employment law.

Navigating the world of business immigration law can be daunting, but with the right guidance, it becomes a manageable part of your business strategy. Our goal is to ensure that your approach to immigration not only complies with the law but also enhances your ability to attract and retain the global talent necessary for your business’s growth and success.


We’ve produced a series of helpful videos to help employers navigate the complexities of employing workers from outside of the UK.

The Square One Law team are excellent. They always provide us not only with rapid, detailed and most of all, cost effective guidance but also advice that is very commercial.

It is important to have a strong and trusted team of professional advisors. That is why I use Square One Law.

Peter StephensonExecutive Chairman, Able UK

The reason that our partnership has worked is that when you’re building a business you need to work with organisations that will take the time to understand your business, that have all the resource base that you need and that you trust. I think that when you build up a start-up you need to pull on a lot of resources and having an organisation that you can just lift up the phone – you can talk to somebody – and they’ll give you some interim advice on the spot, then that’s great; then you can go through more detail in the process.

The Square One Law team played a pivotal role in the launch and growth of North East Times. Their input extended beyond legal matters, offering crucial business advice that spurred our early initiatives. Recently, their support proved invaluable once more. Their guidance was key in securing a new investment, enabling our expansion into digital publishing and bespoke high-level events. Their pragmatic and efficient approach was refreshing and has made a big contribution to the growth of our business.

I would not have taken the business anywhere other than with Square One from my previous experiences but you all - without compromise - delivered over and above my expectations. My whole Team commented on a regular basis as to the professional and supportive interaction throughout the project. I cannot thank you all enough and would without question recommend Square One to anyone as my first choice for any legal advice. Great to work alongside and do business with good, kind, committed and professional people with great values.
