Matthew Lynch

Partner

Matthew Lynch has recently joined us to lead our Immigration team following increasing client demand for specialist advice and insight in this complex and high-risk area of law. 

Matthew joins us from a Legal 500 Tier 1 ranked “Big 4” Professional Services firm where over the last 10 years he led UK inbound services for high profile multinational companies across a range of sectors including Technology, Consulting and Oil & Gas.

Prior to focussing on corporate immigration, Matthew spent seven years specialising in personal immigration with a particular focus on Asylum and Human Rights and would regularly represent clients in their appeal hearings.

Matthew understands the importance of combining technical legal knowledge with a commercial and pragmatic approach to help clients navigate a complex area in a cost-effective and efficient manner whilst ensuring the mitigation of risk.

Matthew is a regular speaker at both internally and externally organised events most recently including Business Forums International, The Growth Company and Expat Academy.

Examples of the types of work and clients Matthew has experience of, include:

  • Leading day to day operations and providing strategic support for one of the UK’s largest inbound immigration programmes on behalf of a multinational technology company (3000+ applications per year).
  • Leading the UK inbound operations for a major Oil & Gas client (400 applications per year) as well as leading in their global Brexit preparations and supporting the coordination of its global programme for a further 60 countries.
  • Advising businesses ranging from start-ups to multinational companies on their immigration compliance requirements.
  • Working with employers to develop their responses to the various immigration challenges arising out of Covid-19.
  • Supporting business in applying for a Sponsor Licence and implementing the required policies and processes to maintain compliance.
