In the last five years the practice has grown from 100 to over 250 staff based in London and Sheffield. As managing partner, Caron leads a partner and manager group which provides cutting-edge strategic, advisory and transactional support on all areas of immigration law. The firm’s bespoke technology system provides clients with real time access to cases, access to data, real-time reporting functionality as well as a secure repository for digital documents.
