Spotlight On… Sabina Kauser
At Acuity, we’ve been out and about in Birmingham, getting to know the key faces in our new neighbourhood!
Sabina Kauser is a long-standing member of the Birmingham legal community, winning Solicitor of the Year at the 2023 British Asian Professional Awards. She also heads our Immigration practice. We drop in on Sabina by for a coffee and a catch-up.
Sabina, tell me a bit about you. What was it like growing up in Birmingham?
I have enjoyed growing up in Birmingham. I have seen it develop and become a multicultural city. I have seen some of the iconic business developments, such as the Selfridges Building, the Central Library and even 103 Colmore Row, where we are based.
I was the first female graduate in my family, and I always aspired to give back to the community. That’s why, as well as my legal practice, I have worked as a chair of a local primary school and a director for two multi-academy trusts.
Did you always want to be a lawyer?
No, actually! I had a keen a keen interest in psychology and, at one point, I wanted to do a degree in criminal psychology… but, due to my interest in legal documentaries, dramas and a solution-focused approach, I decided to go into law.
How do you support the Birmingham legal market?
I have been elected to the Birmingham Law Society Council. The role of the Council is to represent the members of the Law Society in overseeing the activities of the Board. It is a diverse and representative sample of the Birmingham Law Society membership as a whole and I am excited to continue to use my voice to make a meaningful and positive contribution to the profession, and to pave the way for the next generation of lawyers to excel in their careers.
I am also the founding member and the chair and of the Birmingham Law Society‘s Immigration Committee. We meet on a monthly basis to discuss topical immigration issues, rules and regulations affecting the field. We are committed to providing training and guidance to fellow professionals to ensure that practitioners are providing high-quality services, which are compliant with SRA regulations. We also aim to represent practitioners from across the immigration field and to act as a voice for immigration lawyers.
What types of businesses do you work with?
Birmingham is home to a number of hospitals, dental practices and care homes. With the shortage of care workers in the UK, there is a high demand for workers, therefore the pace at which organisations and workers require immigration services is very fast paced.
We are also excited to continue to grow our practice servicing the corporate sectors. At Acuity, we understand the needs of our corporate clients, and tailor our offering to provide a seamless service and bespoke packages to assist our ongoing clients with their continuing immigration needs.
What do you enjoy most about working in Birmingham?
Birmingham is the UK’s second largest city. It is a multicultural business hub and is the ideal market to service corporate and private immigration work. Our office is perfectly placed in the heart of the city, in the Colmore Row Business district, enabling us to provide accessible and quality legal services nationwide.
