Kathryn advises high net worth individuals, often working alongside family offices, and wealth management organisations in applications under the Tier 1 (Investor), and Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) categories of the UK immigration rules. Her experience in personal immigration includes applications under the rules relating to partners, and children, including adoption and surrogacy.

Kathryn also acts for clients in a broad range of appeals to the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) and to the Upper Tribunal often challenging the complexity and rigidity of the current UK immigration rules.
