Business Immigration Solicitor Hans Sok Appadu Nominated for Rising Star Award 2022

  • Posted on

The Society of Asian Lawyers is presenting the 27th annual Asian Legal Awards 2022 in London on 15 October 2022. The head of the business immigration team at OTS Solicitors, Hans Sok Appadu, has been nominated for the Rising Star Award 2022.

Hans Sok Appadu will be attending the awards ceremony together with his fellow partner, Teni Shahiean, and immigration barristers from the renowned 36 Group Chambers.

Although Hans Sok Appadu and OTS Solicitors have been recognised in the two leading law directories, The Legal 500 and Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession, nomination for the Rising Star Award in the Asian Legal Awards is on a ‘different level’ for Hans. Why? Probably because it feels personal.

Hans is being modest with the immigration solicitors at OTS Solicitors by saying that it is the nomination that is the important bit, not the winning. However, everyone at OTS Solicitors, and the specialist immigration barristers at The 36 Group Chambers whom Hans and Teni Shahiean and the business immigration team regularly instruct, are all rooting for Hans.

Teni Shahiean, CEO and senior partner at OTS Solicitors, says:

‘ It doesn’t seem all that long ago that Hans Sok Appadu arrived at OTS Solicitors as an intern, fresh-faced and eager with boundless energy and ambition. The partners knew Hans would not stay as an intern for long. He rose through the ranks from paralegal to trainee solicitor to solicitor to partner and currently heads the business immigration team at OTS Solicitors.

Despite his rapid career progression, Hans has never lost his sparkle and dedication to serving his immigration law clients. When he isn’t sorting out sponsor licence applications for UK business owners or challenging Home Office immigration decisions or advising entrepreneurs on global mobility options, he is looking at our own office procedures and finding ways to make us that bit more efficient so we offer an unparalleled service to our business immigration and individual immigration clients.

‘Managing partner, Oshin Shahiean, and I are immensely proud of Hans, having seen him grow and develop his legal talent over the last 7 years at OTS Solicitors and we like to think that we were one of the first to recognise our rising star. Win or lose the Asian Legal Awards on Saturday, Hans Sok Appadu will be at his desk on Monday dedicated to his business immigration clients and his family of lawyers at OTS Solicitors. Good luck, Hans.’
