Gary McIndoe is founder and managing partner at Latitude Law, specialist immigration solicitors with offices in Manchester, London & Brussels.
Since 2007, Latitude Law has grown steadily to become one of the largest regional players in this niche, often complex field of law. That growth has been organic – a reflection of the firm’s focus on identifying, nurturing and developing talented new lawyers.
Beginning his career with the Home Office, Gary now has more than 30 years of experience in UK-inbound immigration, nationality and refugee law. Throughout his career, Gary has been involved in some protracted fights for status on behalf of individuals, as well as assisting a growing roster of corporate clients to realise their recruitment goals.
As a leading voice in the field, Gary is well placed to provide commentary on a wide range of issues surrounding personal and corporate immigration.
Some particular areas of interest, include:
- Changing public attitudes towards international relocation in post-Brexit Britain
- The UK’s sponsored skilled worker regime, which continues to sit uneasily in a Home Office that is focused on enforcement and strong borders rather than encouraging international talent
- The evolution of the UK’s business migration routes, and how they might better attract the “brightest and best”
In addition to managing a 13-strong legal team, Gary is a regular trainer, conference panellist and media commentator. He is chair of trustees of the electronic immigration network, and a visiting lecturer in international and domestic human rights at the University of Law.
