Our story

Paragon Law was established in 2003 after co-founder, Thal Vasishta, recognised that there were few UK law firms which solely specialised in UK immigration law. By becoming a niche immigration law firm, Paragon Law has been able to develop into a law firm which offers a wide range of services to a diverse client base.

At Paragon Law, we believe that access to legal advice should not be determined by revenue or case size. Our client base is varied and includes large public companies, local authorities, charities, start-ups, universities, owner-managed businesses, and individuals. Our journey has led us to become a market-leading immigration law firm which is home to some of the UK’s most highly regarded immigration lawyers.

Our Approach

A people-first approach, meaning that we work with the knowledge that no two clients are the same. We get to know you -  your desired outcomes, resources and timelines. With this, we then provide you, our client, with a tailored legal solution. 

Ingenuity

Law firms need to be innovative in their operations. Our knowledgeable immigration lawyers create tailor-made solutions for their clients and as a business we are always looking for innovative and efficient systems to deliver our services.

Ingenuity

Committed

Matters of immigration shouldn’t keep you up at night which is why we are committed to delivering a seamless and outstanding service to our clients.
