Mandy said: “It’s amazing to again be admitted to the Who’s Who Legal experts list on Corporate Immigration as a Leader under the age of 45 and the pre-eminent name of the next generation! Age does not matter when it comes to expertise, it is the passion for the business that counts. I am proud and want to give a big thanks to all of the Newland Chase clients and colleagues, as well as friends in the corporate immigration world, for making this happen. Looking forward to remain working with all of you!”
