What we do

THAXTED LEGAL is a dedicated UK immigration services provider for businesses and individuals. We are experts in a wide range of immigration and nationality matters, including sponsor licences, sponsor compliance, work and other business visas, spouse/family visas and ILR/Settlement and British Citizenship applications.

Our motto

Henry Ford famously said ‘Quality means doing it right when no one is looking’ and ‘Before everything else, getting ready is the secret of success’. We couldn’t agree more with Mr Ford and we implement these two quotes as our motto.

Our regulator

Thaxted Legal is regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) to provide immigration advice at Level 2, OISC regulation number F202100336.

Our fees

We are transparent about our fees from the start. Our fees are competitive and vast majority of our work is done on fixed fee basis. However, we are a commercial firm, not a charitable organisation, and we do not offer free advice.

Ms Kasia Janucik is the founder of Thaxted Legal. Kasia is a Senior Immigration Lawyer and she obtained her legal qualifications and gained diverse immigration law experience in London, UK.

Success stories

With focus and dedication we achieve best results for our clients. Our success stories illustrate the type of cases we deal with regularly.

Focus on quality

At Thaxted Legal we are deeply focused on the quality of our work and service delivery, but we also ensure that we do not lose sight of human qualities in our contacts with clients and business partners. Our core values are important to us and we explain them in more detail on our main page. In essence, due to constant changes in the immigration rules and Home Office policies and lack of clarity in the immigration law and Home Office guidance, a great deal of hard work and commitment is required from immigration lawyers in order to achieve best results for clients. In our success stories page you can see examples of cases that we handle.

Commitment and dedication

We are dedicated and committed to deliver high quality work with focus on the immigration laws but also with practical and common sense approach and integrity. We combine immigration knowledge with experience and professional intuition developed during many years in immigration practice. We are proud to receive good feedback from our clients.

For those who wish to come to the UK the poem ‘IF’ can help to understand the culture and core values

Rudyard Kipling 1865-1936 (English poet)


If you can keep your head when all about you
   Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
   But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
   Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don’t give way to hating,
   And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
   If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
   And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
   Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
   And stoop and build ’em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
   And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
   And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
   To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
   Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on”;

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
   Or walk with kings—nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
   If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run—
   Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!
