Windrush Inspired Immigration Expert, Tamara Rundle, Joins Battens Solicitors

Posted on: 24/04/2018

Immigration specialist, Tamara Rundle, is joining Battens Solicitors as a consultant to help with a growing demand for advice on visa, ancestry and EEA applications.

Ms Rundle, who has set up immigration departments in several law firms and has a 100 per cent success rate in entrepreneur and partner visas, was inspired to specialise in immigration law after meeting Bristol-based anti-racism campaigner, Hilary Brown.

“I was working as a teacher on the adolescent unit of Bristol Priory when I met Hilary Brown,” explains Tamara. “I had already done my CPE to change my communications degree to law, but was so inspired by her work with Bristol’s Jamaican community – the Windrush Generation – that I decided to focus on criminal and immigration law.”

Tamara completed her legal studies at Bristol UWE and Cardiff before qualifying, and then worked across a number of fields including litigation and employment, before specialising solely on immigration.

“Immigration is a tremendously positive area of law. It is all about growth, new ventures, opportunity, excellence and people starting new chapters in their lives.”

Tamara, who is based in Battens’ Bath office and will travel or connect with clients wherever they are based, will advise on a range of issues including work visas, visit visas, and EEA and ancestry applications. She will also work with graduate entrepreneurs in Bristol, Bath, Exeter and Bournemouth, and with large service-based sectors such as Telecoms, Equine, and HM Forces.

Keith Fullman, CEO of Battens, said:  “There are few immigration specialists, particularly in this part of the country, so we are very pleased to be able to offer this as a service to our clients.  We look forward to working with her.
