A Nottingham law firm says it is set to take on more staff and extra office space to cope with the growing demand for its services.

OTB Legal is recruiting four new team members and has acquired additional space in its current office on Chase Park.

This follows a busy few months for the team as it supports business bosses dealing with post-Brexit Britain and new immigration rules which came into force in December 2020.

The new visa route for British National (Overseas) citizens in Hong Kong was also introduced in January and has generated “significant” interest with clients requiring assistance to prepare their applications.

OTB Legal was set up two years ago by founding directors Mark Lilley-Tams, Sally McEwen and Aldijana Hoad. The team of six now acts across both business and personal immigration law.

Hoad said: “With so many changes in immigration law over the last few months, it’s not surprising that we have seen a surge in calls.

“As lockdown begins to ease, we expect things to get even busier as international borders start to reopen and we see the movement of people again.

“With all this in mind, we are looking to expand our team across of a variety of positions from personal immigration lawyer to trainee operations manager to help us meet the growing demand for our services.”

OTB Legal has just been voted as one of the top immigration law firms in the UK by its customers, taking second spot nationally on Review Solicitor* ranking above over 600 other businesses.

Hoad added: “We are very proud of our ranking as we have always ensured that client care is one of our top priorities. We aim to be approachable and honest about case prospects and our team really do enjoy what they do. To receive such great feedback from our clients is testament to the hard work of the team and we look forward to adding to that team over the coming months.”
