Hans Sok Appadu promoted to partner at OTS Solicitors

  • Posted on

OTS Solicitors are delighted and very proud to announce that Hans Sok Appadu has been promoted to a junior partner after five years of working at OTS Solicitors in London.

Hans joins Oshin Shahiean, Managing Partner, and Teni Shahiean, CEO, as partners at OTS Solicitors.

Teni Shahiean says:

"Hans Sok Appadu’s promotion to partner is in recognition of his hard work and dedication over the past five years. Hans joined OTS Solicitors five years ago as an intern. He was soon promoted to the position of paralegal and from there rapidly progressed to become a case worker. Hans was then appointed as a trainee solicitor at OTS Solicitors. We were all proud when Hans qualified as a solicitor but we knew that his ambition would not stop there.

"Since qualifying as a solicitor, Hans has gone from strength to strength building a flourishing foundation of loyal clients, attracting new and repeat business, receiving outstanding client feedback and showing great leadership skills and an interest in management matters, such as legal compliance and to the firm’s commitment to excellence in client care.

"Hans initially worked in the personal Immigration law department and his time there honed his ability to understand not only the legal complexity of Immigration applications but the personal consequences of success or failure for our clients. That grounding in some of the most demanding Human Rights and judicial review claims has made him the dedicated and tenacious lawyer that he is today.

"Hans now heads our business immigration team where he and the team act for global companies securing sponsor licences, resolving Sponsor Licence management and compliance issues, advising on and securing work visas and providing associated employment law and Immigration advice to HR departments. The team also act for entrepreneurs and investors in securing start-up, Innovator, global talent and investor visas. Whatever the size of your company, or the nature of your business immigration law query, Hans and the business immigration team are dedicated to finding the right business immigration law solution for you.

"The business immigration law team is recommended in the two leading law directories, Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession and Legal 500. The business immigration department has substantial experience in advising clients from the Middle East, Dubai, Hong Kong, the USA, India and Australia as well as having ties with Armenia and tendering for government work in Armenia".

Oshin Shahiean says:

"Over the last five years we have watched Hans Sok Appadu progress from intern to head of our business immigration department and whilst he is ambitious and driven he has been appointed as a junior partner because he shares our vision for OTS Solicitors and its commitment to excellent client care. That means that whatever the nature of the Immigration law issue or the size of your company, Hans is totally dedicated to getting the best commercial business immigration solution for you".

Hans Sok Appadu says:

"I feel incredibly lucky to have found an intern post at OTS Solicitors. I wasn’t sure what it would lead to but I knew it was my opportunity. I never thought it would lead to partnership but it goes to show you what you can achieve with determination, hard work and good fortune.

"Arriving in the UK at age eighteen with little more than my visa has made me appreciate the importance of both personal and business immigration law matters to our clients. To me, whether you are a global company, an entrepreneur with your first start-up, or planning to come to the UK on a work visa, Immigration law is about people who deserve excellent client service and complete dedication from their lawyer.

"The appointment as a partner has made me all the more determined that at OTS Solicitors we will continue to innovate and achieve our client’s Immigration goals whilst helping to mentor the next generation of Immigration lawyers".
