What client’s say about Nighat:

When we decided to recruit two new account handlers at the turn of the year, I immediately contacted Nighat for her advice on procedure and the drafting of necessary documents including terms of employment. Her response was fast, efficient and personable and our hires went smoothly. Unfortunately, it became apparent that one of those new hires was no longer suitable as a result of multiple issues with poor performance. As before, I immediately called Nighat to request her input. Just as before, she came back to me almost immediately, despite being extremely busy and told me precisely what I was entitled to do. What has struck me most about the way Nighat works is that, unlike the majority of lawyers, she actually advises on what her clients can do in a clear-cut fashion; far too many lawyers simply present a number of broad options with no real advice at all. Moreover, she does it in her own inimitable way and, as a lawyer myself, I find her approach refreshing. Thank you to Nighat for her assistance; I would absolutely recommend her to anyone requiring advice on employment and business immigration issues.
