Nigel has particular expertise in sponsorship of overseas workers, business visas, visa cancellation and general skilled migration. He also litigates in the federal courts on visa related matters.

One stand out example is Nigel’s advice on the cancellation of student visas by the Australian Government in 2005. With appeal action, Nigel was successful in asking the Federal Magistrates Court to reverse the automatic cancellation of some 8,000 student visas in Australia.
