About the role and how to apply:

LDI is a multi-award-winning leading immigration firm, ranked in band 1 by legal directories.

Our teams in London and New York specialise in all aspects of UK and US immigration and nationality law, acting for a diverse range of clients, from multinational companies to start-ups, families, high net worth individuals and celebrities.  We have a strong human rights and appeals practice and are proud of our pro-bono and policy development work.

Known for our strategic approach, LDI’s mission is not only to offer the highest quality of service and representation to our clients but to challenge and shape immigration law and policy.  Our lawyers are active contributors to organisations such as ILPA, AILA, the Law Society Immigration Committee and LexisNexisPSL, as well as regular conference speakers and commentators on immigration topics in the media.

Solicitor / Senior Paralegal

We are seeking experienced practitioners of the highest calibre to join our team and will consider applications from both solicitors and experienced paralegals.

Candidates must demonstrate significant specialist UK immigration experience (typically we would anticipate applicants may have 3-7 years’ experience – which may comprise pre-qualification experience), acting in both business and personal immigration matters.

Applicants should have a strong academic background and must demonstrate excellent analytical skills, attention to detail and strategic thinking.  You will have a clear passion for immigration law, including a readiness to challenge and effect change where appropriate.  Exceptional communication and presentation skills are required and we encourage lawyers to engage in wider activities such as business development, networking and public speaking.  We expect the highest levels of professionalism, client service and consideration for colleagues.

We offer high quality work and exceptional training/development working with leading lawyers in a collaborative and friendly firm.   LDI’s technical awareness programme, supported by our excellent PSL team, includes internal and external training courses, frequent technical update meetings and weekly bulletins.   We believe we offer a stimulating, supportive and enjoyable environment for staff at all levels.  We offer a range of wellbeing initiatives (previously recognised in the 2019 LexisNexis Legal Awards for Wellbeing) including a comprehensive Employee Assistance Programme.

Salaries: negotiable depending on experience (plus benefits)
