Macpherson Kelley Lawyers has a dedicated migration law practice within our workplace relations team which specialises in corporate and business related migration. Our team is up-to-date with the latest changes in Australian migration law, so we can provide you with the most practical advice and assistance on Australian migration matters which affect your business. Our advice is timely, and adaptable to your particular circumstances.

Because each situation has its own particular set of facts, we will consider and assess your business requirements, and discuss with you the options available for you and/or your employee. As part of this discussion, we will advise you of any obligations required to be met as well the prospects of success depending on the strategy being considered. Our advice incorporates your rights and obligations under Australian workplace laws with the ultimate goal being the most appropriate application being lodged with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

Our services are offered as a complete package, from instructions until a decision is received from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. Where appropriate, an hourly consultancy rate can be offered.
