Speaker information

Chetal Patel


I help clients with their UK business related immigration matters and provide pragmatic solutions to often complex situations. At the heart of every immigration matter is an individual and I keep this at the forefront of my mind when advising. My particular interests lie in sponsor related matters, the post-Brexit landscape and the government’s ‘hostile environment’ policies. With a range of immigration routes available, my work also means that I advise business people, HNW and high-profile individuals on visiting the UK and securing status. Due to the nature of my work, I’m fortunate to work collaboratively with colleagues across other departments at Bates Wells’ and this adds to the client service that we can offer. I enjoy sharing know how and I regularly deliver training sessions on business immigration related topics to fellow practitioners and organisations both nationally and internationally. I also contribute commentary to journalists.
