Rakhmad Sobirov (Co-Founder, Managing Lawyer)

It’s a great privilege to work with a team of professionals who are genuinely interested in helping our clients from different countries. On a very personal level, each of us is interested to bring the best and the brightest from those countries to Canada!

My teammates have experienced the challenges of being immigrants and bringing their families to Canada. They understand different cultures, speak foreign languages, and connect with clients on a totally different level. These features of our team make us very unique and give us opportunities to be more client-centred and empathetic. I don’t hesitate to take on the most challenging immigration cases when I have such a focused and dedicated team! We always welcome those who are ready to join us and help future Canadians!

What future employees should know before joining our team?

You should realize that potential immigrants come to us seeking honesty, transparency, and genuine help in their immigration matters. Honesty requires that we explain all strengths and weaknesses of their case. Transparency requires that we use our best judgement in pursuing the client’s best interests. Genuine help requires that we constantly improve ourselves as professionals so that we can provide the best legal representation for our clients.
