Few firms have put in as much of a barnstorming financial performance as immigration boutique Fragomen recently. UK revenue jumped by 60 per cent in 2022, from $44m to $62.3m, as pandemic restrictions eased and Fragomen was at last able to capitalise on Brexit-related work. UK managing partner Nadine Goldfoot is at the forefront not just of her firm’s commercial success but also of a drive to steer a culturally diverse and inclusive course that benefits clients, employees and Fragomen as a whole. This encompasses fostering professional growth for working parents and others with care responsibilities, the introduction of a mentoring and reverse mentoring scheme, and the launch of a Crisis Response Group – chaired by Goldfoot – to help Fragomen’s clients navigate through the current geopolitical crises.

In addition, Fragomen’s work with Talent Beyond Boundaries saw it campaign for a UK Displaced Talent visa, which led to the Home Secretary announcing a pilot which ultimately facilitated UK work applications from more than 600 skilled refugees and displaced people, largely into the health sector. This initiative is now global, with similar engagements with other governments around the world. Fragomen also sponsored two work visas for two paralegal candidates from Afghanistan, becoming one of the first law firms in the UK to do so.
