About Callum De Freitas
Callum is a Solicitor in our Employment and Immigration teams, having joined the firm in July 2020.
On the employment side, Callum assists businesses and individuals with a variety of contentious and non-contentious matters, including settlement agreements, disciplinaries, grievances and employment tribunals. He regularly drafts bespoke documents, including handbooks, policies, service agreements and employment contracts, and provides clients with day-to-day advice on ad hoc employment law matters.
As for immigration, Callum has experience with both business and personal immigration, advising companies and individuals alike. He regularly assists clients with Skilled Worker and Global Business Mobility visa applications for their migrant workers, while also helping organisations obtain and manage their sponsor licences.
Callum’s cross-specialisation background in both employment and immigration gives him a unique perspective from which to advise clients. His knowledge of employment law and drafting allows him to advise business immigration clients on what clauses to include in their migrant workers’ employment contracts. Similarly, his understanding of immigration law and the sponsorship process enables him to advise employers on their options for hiring from overseas, and the associated costs and timescales.
Callum is a member of the Employment Lawyers’ Association and has primary responsibility for our employment law bulletin. He is also a member of the Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association, and regularly writes articles for our website, updating clients on the ever-changing landscape of UK immigration law.
