Michael also holds a Masters degree in law from Sydney University specialising in Administrative and Immigration Law. Michael has previously worked in a number of prominent Sydney CBD firms, gaining experience in contract law and commercial litigation.
Michael supports both small and large businesses, across a range of industries, managing the migration of their staff into Australia. Michael prepares visa and related applications on behalf of employers. He also provides advice on ways to retain foreign workers.
A number of visa options are often available to facilitate the migration of foreign employees. Michael takes the time to understand his client’s requirements before advising on the most appropriate migration pathway.
Businesses that intend to recruit foreign workers are subject to a range of complex obligations which change regularly. Penalties can be imposed on businesses that are found to have breached these obligations. Michael assists to ensure compliance with Australia’s migration laws.
Michael also acts for successful business people, entertainers and “high-worth” clients who want to migrate in order to establish a business, work or retire in Australia. He ensures a smooth transition from temporary to permanent residence by providing comprehensive and clear advice before the initial visa application, and effective representation throughout the process in seeking permanent residence.
