Solicitors in Slough
B P Collins has consistently been working alongside Slough-based businesses and private individuals throughout our 50+ year history. From our offices in nearby Gerrards Cross, we regularly act for clients in Slough, network and attend events in the town and have strong connections with many complementary professional service businesses with Slough headquarters or branches.

We provide many of these businesses with employment, commercial property, dispute resolution and corporate and commercial advice to help them minimise risk, acting as long-term advisors to guide them with growth strategies.
Slough is extremely accessible with excellent transport links to assist local businesses. The M4 provides fast routes to London, Heathrow Airport and Reading, meaning the town attracts many businesses from several sectors and inward investment from Europe and other parts of the world.

The UK is currently working on a Brexit agreement to leave the EU bringing much uncertainty to businesses and individuals. One change which has been clarified is the new settled status immigration process for EU nationals. Our immigration team are here to help EU nationals living in Berkshire with this new application process.
Slough employers should be advising their EU employees to keep up-to-date with the progress of implementation of settled status. Ultimately, this is the only route that will secure the status of EU citizens in the UK post 31 October 2019 and if EU citizens do not take these steps, there may come a point that they’re regarded as illegal workers, attracting the significant penalties and sanctions that go with it.
