Immigration specialist Marian Dixon has joined Leamington-based solicitors Ollerenshaw from leading London law firm Lovells.
"Marian's appointment is a real coup for us. She is one of the first business immigration specialists to operate in the region," said senior partner Tim Ollerenshaw.
Ms Dixon is a member of the Immigration Law Practitioners' Association and has for the past four years been their representative on the Work Permits (UK) user panel.
With over 23 years' experience, she started out as an immigration officer at Heathrow airport and went on to work for Norton Rose where she qualified in 1990.
