Breaking news: the launch of the UK Department for International Trade support directory

  • Posted on

It is with great pleasure that Teni Shahiean, CEO at OTS Solicitors can announce that not only has the government launched the UK Department for International Trade support directory, but also that OTS Solicitors feature in the businesses included in the new government digital investment support directory.

At a time of both political and economic uncertainty, businesses need professional advice on how to promote and grow their businesses. Therefore, there could not be a better time for the government to launch the new directory. The digital investment support directory promotes expertise of specialist businesses to investors across the globe making it easier for investors to connect to private sector expertise.
The UK Investment Support Directory is a collection of companies that have the skills and experience to help overseas businesses establish themselves or expand in the UK. The digital tool enables global businesses find the right specialist help, for example, to find business immigration solicitors with expertise in intercompany transfers or sole representative visas or fluency in foreign languages.
An endorsement from a government department as specialist legal advisors for foreign businesses is a title to be proud of and demonstrates that OTS Solicitors enjoys a reputation as a game changing and an authoritative law firm providing seamless Immigration, business and employment law advice to UK based and global companies, ranging from start-ups to multi-nationals.
Talking about the new directory, the Minister for Investment, Graham Stuart MP said:
“The launch of the new Investment Support Directory is one of many ways in which DIT is helping to drive investment to every corner of the UK. We hope this new Directory will be an invaluable resource for investors thinking of setting up operations in the UK.
We are making it easier than ever before for foreign investors to find opportunities in the UK, supported by our network of HMTCs and global experts across more than 100 countries, to ensure the UK remains the number one destination for foreign direct investment in Europe.”

Mark Slaughter, Director General for Investment said:

“The UK Investment Support Directory is a smart, new digital tool that innovatively connects investors to private sector expertise. This interactive platform allows investors to tailor their searches to find the specific advice they are looking for or generates a range of businesses if they aren’t sure what they’re looking for yet. It is another way DIT is helping support foreign investment by streamlining connections between UK businesses and overseas investors.”

Oshin Shahiean, Managing Partner at OTS Solicitors said:

“The team at OTS Solicitors are delighted to have been included in the launch of the UK Department for International Trade support directory. Established in 2015, OTS Solicitors has rapidly been recognised as one of the UK's leading Immigration and business law firms. Few practices have achieved so much national and international recognition in such a short period including recommendation in the Legal 500 directory and being accredited Solicitors by the Law Society as trusted specialists in Immigration law, as well as receiving awards and accolades, such as the award for “The Most Innovative business immigration Law Firm 2019” from SME News."
“We advise ultra-high net worth investors, sole representatives of businesses overseas, exceptional talent visa applicants, Innovator Visa and Start-up Visa applicants , and help with global migration planning for small start-ups to international businesses requiring Sponsorship Licences. We proactively collaborate with external organisations on wider investment issues as well as business and corporate mobility services. The aim of OTS Solicitors is to provide cost-effective legal expertise, with an exceptional level of service, and a genuine service tailored to individual and business needs.
“Inclusion in the UK Department for International Trade support directory is a really exciting development for OTS Solicitors as it helps promote our expertise to global business owners and promotes what we are good at, namely delivering results driven legal solutions”.
