London-born Anthony Michael is a director at Deloitte’s immigration team, led by award-winning lawyer Jurga McCluskey. The talented adviser swiftly moved up the ranks, from senior manager to director, since he joined the Big Four firm in 2015. Formerly at PwC’s legal practice, he started his career as a paralegal at Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy. In this landscape, the status of EU workers remains a key issue for private clients and businesses alike. Michael helps clients structure clear plans to mitigate workforce pressures that might arise from the current post-Brexit sentiment. The ‘known knowns’ are what Michael and his team are currently working on. This includes upcoming changes to the Tier 2 visa category, from the immigration ‘skills charge’ and increasing salary thresholds, to the closure of the short term visa. All of these present challenges to the future of the recruitment of skilled workers, even though the demand for skilled workforce is still increasing. Deloitte’s immigration team covers all aspects of business and private client related mobility issues, on a global scale. Michael’s practice is comprehensive and includes residency and citizenship assistance for global HNWs. ‘HNWs are increasingly turning to Economic Citizenship programmes to secure a “Plan B” for themselves and their families,’ he says. ‘These decisions are often driven by their long succession planning for their business ventures, but more importantly securing stability and security for their family’s future.’
