Emre Vurgun


I joined Buckles as a consultant in August 2021. For more than five years, I have represented and advised many entrepreneurs, high net worth individuals, companies, senior managers, individuals, and families in relation to corporate and private immigration matters.

Prior to joining Buckles, I assisted a boutique city firm in London in their immigration team, where I also acted as the head of the corporate immigration department. I have an LLB from Reading University and an LLM from King’s College London in International Tax Law.

I specialise in Immigration and Nationality Law. As an experienced immigration solicitor, I assist my clients in relation to Tier 1 Investor Visa, Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa (now Start–up and Innovator Visas), Sponsor Licence Audits and Applications, Tier 2 General (now Skilled Worker Visa) and Intra Company Transfer Visas, Exceptional Talent Visa (now Global Talent Visa), Representative of an Overseas Business Visa and Turkish Businessperson/Worker Visas.

I also advise on settlement, European applications, family applications and applications for British citizenship, as well as applications for the management of sponsor licences and compliance with sponsor duties.

I understand that moving to a new country is often a very challenging process where various emotions coexist. I support all my clients throughout the entire process, both professionally and emotionally, to ensure the journey to their new life is comfortable and their experience is pleasant.

I am fluent in Turkish and English. I have an extensive network in London’s Turkish community, and I am a member of Immigration Law Practitioners Association (ILPA).

Outside of work, I like to read, exercise, and spend time with my family and friends.
