Fox Williams LLP

Work Department



Sacha joined Fox Williams in April 2016 as Head of the Immigration Practice.

Having worked in the field since the early 1990s, Sacha has expertise in all aspects of UK business and employment-related immigration, and advises both corporations and individuals at all levels of management, including potential liability for illegal employment, sponsor licensing, the transfer and recruitment of individuals and related matters, and applications and appeals under UK and European Law.  She handles complex and difficult matters for both companies and individuals which require experience, judgment, and an understanding of the multifaceted workings of immigration law and practice. 

She is currently advising clients following the EU referendum vote, ensuring they are ready to take advantage of the opportunities, mitigate risks, and have the processes and people in place to manage a period of uncertainty.


She trained at Withers and has focussed exclusively on immigration and employment work since that time, and worked at top firms in Paris, Romania and here in the UK. She founded and ran her own practice focussing exclusively on immigration and nationality work and ran the firm from 2001 to 2016.  She brings a wealth of knowledge and practical experience of UK and European immigration law to the firm.
