Carter Thomas founder, Nichola Carter, advised the Board of London Metropolitan University on its legal strategy following the decision by UKBA to revoke its sponsor licence.
Ensuring that LMU received pro-active legal advice on the various issues arising from the revocation, Nichola liaised with senior officials at the then UKBA (now UKVI) and implemented the strategy that led to the University regaining its status as a sponsor licence holder.
The press covered the situation in detail and you can read The Lawyer’s article here.
Nichola has been described by The Legal 500 as having ‘an exceptionally strong reputation amongst the education sector’ and is widely regarded as the UK’s leading adviser on complex sponsor licence and enforcement issues. She has since advised numerous other universities that have had their licences suspended by UKVI or have faced other forms of enforcement action.
