There is a political debate in Parliament on whether the ‘super-rich should get special treatment’ via the investor visa route, Nicolas Rollason says, against the backdrop of Europe’s crisis. ‘It’s made the contrast between the very wealthy and the very vulnerable much more stark.’ Born and raised in Geneva, Rollason has first-hand experience of expatriate life. This head of immigration leads a team of specialists, focused primarily on UHNW investors, entrepreneurs and families moving to the UK, as well as much more complex cases among his clientele, who hail from all corners of the globe. When Liberal Democrat members of the House of Lords reasoned that the golden visas brought ‘laundered money into the UK’, Rollason thinks the argument ‘was just a little bit weird’: ‘We reassured the public that actually, the rules in place now provide the system with a lot of integrity — it is fairly robust.’ His knowledge, experience and ability to provide savvy and strategic advice to businesses on their global immigration needs are revered across his field, including his ability to provide savvy and strategic advice to businesses on their global immigration needs. Rollason has litigated major test cases at the European Court of Justice. Industry commentators are effusive — one calls him ‘a good trainer’ and a ‘font of all nowledge’, and says he is a man who ‘has a seat at the table for a lot of policy discussions’.
