Zoe is an associate in the Immigration Team at Farrer & Co. She advises on every aspect of the UK Immigration system, representing individuals in all categories of visa and leave to remain applications, as well advising institutions on their immigration strategy.
Zoe specialises in complex immigration work, advising both individuals and businesses in relation to applications under the Immigration Rules and the EEA Regulations. High net worth individuals come to her for her specialist knowledge of applications under Tier 1 of the Immigration Rules, and for her track record of success for clients in unusual circumstances.
