Andrei is a qualified solicitor being admitted into the Romanian Bar Association Roll back in 2003. He holds a First-Class Bachelor’s (Honours) Degree in Law and a Master’s degree In EU Law with Merit from the University of Law Bucharest.
Since moving to the UK, Andrei spent his last 10 years in a variety of roles (spanning from recruitment, training, compliance). His passion for Immigration started back in 2012, and since then he has been a member of Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (JWCI) as well as, Immigration Law Practitioners Association (ILPA).
Andrei supports our clients on a range of employment law and business immigration matters. He has developed close relationships with clients – particularly in the hospitality, retail and construction sectors. He consistently delivers training sessions, covering topics such as: the impact of Brexit on businesses; the UK’s current and future points-based immigration system; and conducting right to work checks.
He supports clients on their applications to become registered sponsor licence holders and the subsequent process they are required to follow to engage overseas workers. He also assists clients with managing their sponsor licence obligations on an ongoing basis and has particular expertise in conducting and auditing right to work checks.
His role in the London office also involves networking and maintaining boots on the ground, with a core focus on business development, customer experience and client engagement, while expanding the UK business into the corporate sphere.
