Camerons hires KPMG’s business immigration team as accountancy giant pulls
out of advisory area

CMS Cameron McKenna is set to take over KPMG’s specialist business
immigration team in the City, reports Accountancy Age’s sister
publication
Legal
Week
.

The firm has opted to pull out of the advisory area, with the team transfer
agreed by both companies.

The agreement will see four immigration specialists join Camerons, with the
move expected to be completed by mid-October.

Two of the team joining CMS are senior managers within KPMG, though none are
qualified solicitors. A fifth member of the team is set to join accounting rival
PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) next month.

A KPMG spokesperson said: “We are exiting from this area because it is no
longer core to our services. The transfer of the team has all been worked out
very amicably with CMS Cameron McKenna and we wish them the very best there.”

KPMG’s decision to exit the business immigration market has surprised some in
the market, given that the recent changes in UK immigration rules have generated
increased workflow.

One business immigration partner with a rival professional services firm
commented: “Everyone in this field is hiring at the moment because the
immigration area is one that is growing hugely.”
