We specialise in complex migration, health and character cases.

How BDO can help

Our specialist team of immigration lawyers can assist you with the following:

  • Human resource strategy and review: design and implement human resource strategy and frameworks tailored to business needs and the enterprise generally. This encompasses controls, delegated responsibility, document management systems, and processes that align with immigration and human resources and include data protection, data privacy and monitoring.
  • Managing and responding to sponsorship, monitoring, compliance, investigations and enforcement: enabling the business to meet its support and related obligations, including reviewing and providing information and documents as relevant in each case.
  • Forensic investigations: rapid response to incidences of the breach including identification of cause and implementation of remediation measures as may be required.
  • Awareness, training and education: customised education and awareness programs for boards, senior management and staff.
  • Incident response planning: develop comprehensive reporting to minimise the impact of a breach. This considers business-critical processes, and the roles and responsibilities of relevant individuals in the organisation.
