Kirin Abbas is a Director at Paragon Law and is also a leading immigration solicitor in our Business Immigration department. Kirin has a particular expertise in the technology, sports, engineering, higher education, and energy sectors. Kirin also works closely with universities and colleges to provide assistance with student visas, sponsor licence applications, and in-house immigration training and seminars.
Kirin’s area of focus is acting for clients on all applications under Tier 2 of the points based system. As part of this focus, Kirin manages the Sponsor Management System (SMS) for a number of Paragon Law’s corporate clients. However, not only does Kirin assist with the management of the SMS, but she can assist throughout all stages of the process, from advising businesses whether they need to join the SMS through to advising on the impact of changes to a role and the impact on sponsorship. For organisations who manage their SMS in-house, Kirin can support HR teams to ensure they remain compliant with their sponsorship duties.
Aside from her business immigration focus, Kirin also leads the relationships that Paragon Law has with a number of education institutions. This role sees Kirin advising education institutions and international students on Tier 4 (student visa) applications.
Kirin also represents individuals who are looking to stay in the UK for work, study or investment purposes.
