We make the complex area of immigration law simple by providing a complete range of advice - including immigration or visa applications, obtaining accredited employer status and compliance issues.
I recently engaged the team to help me gain New Zealand Residency for one of my top employees who is from Ireland. They were fantastic, they just took all the stress out of the process for us which allowed us to get on with our jobs plastering and painting rather than filling out forms for INZ and all the bureaucracy that goes with it. I have no hesitation in recommending Cavell Leitch for all your legal requirements.
Some of our recent projects have included:
Assisting a Christchurch business to achieve accredited employer status.
Assisting an employer in supporting an employee and his partner to obtain residence, through the Skilled Migrant Category.
Obtaining new visas for a seconded employee and his family, so that the employee can stay in New Zealand to complete an important project.
