Years of experience


About their firm

We believe that immigration and immigrants bring huge benefits to the social, cultural and economic life of the United Kingdom. 
 We also believe that immigration processes for individuals and businesses are stressful, difficult to understand, and unnecessarily expensive.
 And we believe that everyone, from the largest corporate to the individual applicant, has the right to a well-qualified lawyer at affordable rates.​
 It is for these reasons that Edgewater Legal was founded and, accordingly, it is our mission to provide clients with exceptional levels of service, and to give advice and assistance about a complex and ever-shifting area of law in a straightforward way. 
 Edgewater Legal is based at offices in Victoria and led by experienced immigration practitioner, Nick Nason, a specialist immigration lawyer since 2009.

Nick is very responsive and incredibly well-informed. He quickly understood my immigration position, which was slightly unusual, and immediately offered practical advice and a series of clear options along with the impact of each. I would recommend Nick without reservation.

We asked Nick to help us with the Tier 1 Entrepreneurs Visa, switching from the Graduate one. Even our case is a bit complicated, Nick was very patient and help us went through everything step by step. And we finally got our Tier 1 visa thank you to Nick! Would definitely recommend him to anyone who need immigration advice!

If you see Nick's name on the list of lawyers on your post here, just click hire without a second thought. In short, my Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa application was successful thanks to him. Having contacted several lawyers on here and on other websites, Nick came off as the most genuine and professional. He is very easy to work with, funny, confident and calm despite the complexity of the case. He made the whole process looks so easy, I highly recommend him!

Nick has been very helpful in navigating the Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa application process. He brought peace of mind to a potentially hectic process. I appreciate the services he offered to our business and family of 6. He has been more than accommodating to our needs.

Nick was very helpful throughout our application as an Entrepreneur team (which is under UKBA consideration at the moment). We found him knowledgeable and thorough in his approach. Beyond that he also provided us with valuable links for websites and reports for our business plan preparation as well as solutions for some critical problems we faced. He was always available via phone or email for extended or quick discussions which helped us to decide about issues related to our application.

I turned to Nick Nason for help with my entrepreneur visa extension a year before the due date, as I was extremely apprehensive given the different approaches taken to the "investment" criteria. I was looking for a thorough professional who would take initiative and help me with the nuances of my individual case minimising the risk of refusal. Nick is calm and confident, writes clear & concise follow up emails and liaises with the home office, as required. I would highly recommend Nick Nason

Nick is the best immigration lawyer. If you are in immigration trouble and then please go visit Edgewater Legal now! All the credit for my successful application for UK Tier 1 Entrepreneur goes to Nick. Nick is very committed, genuine and that clearly reflects on how well he treats his clients. He is an expert, very organized,and made detailed efforts to guide me through every step of the process. I won't agree that there is a better immigration lawyer than him.

I would definitely recommend Nick to others. I was skeptical to use Lexoo to find a solicitor, but it proved wrong.

I engaged Edgewater Legal to help me transition from a Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa to Indefinite Leave to Remain. Nick has been extremely diligent and hands-on throughout the process, clearly laying out the requirements, explaining the intricacies and driving the collation/review and application process to a very tight deadline. He spent considerable time and effort ensuring my application was clear and comprehensive and delivered in time. I would not hesitate in recommending.

Nick was helpful and stayed on top of the situation. He willingly provided some initial advice and legwork before signing a formal contract, which was much appreciated. Although my intended immigration situation has been postponed, that was on my end, not his, and I am looking forward to picking the matter back up with him in the future.

In my experience, there're 2 types of lawyers: decent ones & those who are only looking for your money. Nick is kind & decent which is very hard to find. He spent his weekend looking through all my applications to find a way to help me. He is very prompt in his emails & excels in his immigration knowledge. He'd rather give his honest opinion and advice rather than lie to get more services from me. I truly appreciate it. I have no hesitation in recommending Nick. Many thanks again. ML

Nick helped me with every step of applying for British citizenship and obtaining a passport. He was prompt in replying to my emails and phone calls. Nick personally delivered documents to my home. He is both friendly and professional. I only hope that Meghan Markle has someone as competent and efficient as Nick Nason to help her through the citizenship application process.

Nick is great -- still in the process for my Tier 1 (exceptional promise) application, but he has been hugely helpful thus far!

I was looking for advice regarding Entrepreneurship Visa and other immigration matters for some of my team members based abroad. I found Nick very knowledgeable on these subjects and he was able to articulate and structure his advice in a very user friendly manner which was extremely useful in helping me make the decision. Nick was diligent in carrying out the research required to answer complex queries and was very responsive and professional in his approach. I would highly recommend Nick.

Nick Nason is a very thorough and competent professional with a great work ethic, but also easy to work with and consistently willing to take the time to discuss my concerns. During the time we worked, I was very impressed by the dedicated manner in which Nick carried out his work, he is very organized and methodical. He had the ability to keep it simple and made all our interactions positive. The outcome was successful and this wouldn’t have been possible without his hard work and commitment.
