Partner, Global Government Strategies and Compliance, Fragomen, UK
"As a practicing lawyer advising on immigration for many years now, I’ve witnessed first hand the emotional trauma that harsh immigration rules have on a family when it’s impossible for a partner to work. Indeed, such is the negative impact that I’ve seen many cases which lead to the family splitting up. That’s why I’m passionate about supporting work for partners – it’s not just important for companies, it’s also of real benefit for families."
