Hazar El-Chamaa

Spear’s Review

A highly regarded member of Penningtons Manches Cooper’s immigration team, Hazar El-Chamaa advises HNWs and families looking to move to Britain from a variety of countries, including the UAE, Saudi Arabia, the US and Brazil. ‘My role is varied,’ she told Spear’s. ‘I can have a call from a university dealing with a licence compliance issue, or the agent of a professional sportsperson, or an HNW looking to relocate to the UK.’ 

A fluent Arabic speaker, she reports an increase in instructions from UHNW families from the region as her practice has developed. Working closely with Penningtons’ tax and other private client departments –including family and sports law – El-Chamaa offers a route into the firm’s full legal service.

As well as private client work, El-Chamaa also meets regularly with policy chiefs at the Home Office and frequently makes representations on how proposed changes might affect investors and entrepreneurs.

Adviser Profile

Hazar heads the Private Wealth immigration offering at Penningtons Manches Cooper, working closely with highly reputable colleagues in the family, real estate and private client teams to deliver a holistic service to those relocating to the UK. Finding innovative bespoke solutions to live problems and quickly is what Hazar and the team are best known for. Hazar is also currently serving her 3rd year as chair of the Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association, the membership body for immigration practitioners in the UK. This provides an opportunity to influence immigration policy for the better and to resolve operational issues faced by clients whether they be corporates, education providers or individuals.
