Solicitor Julia Picco joins KPMG’s Legal Services this month to run its immigration practice in the UK as the Legal Director for Immigration. Julia joins from Deloitte, and previously PwC, with 25 years’ experience in immigration and business transformation.
Julia will work closely with the firm’s Head of Immigration, Minaho Shiraishi, and global mobility colleagues internationally to support clients to navigate the legal minefield of moving people and services around the world and across jurisdictions. She joins with a varied career in UK and global immigration strategy, compliance, coaching and business improvement. She also brings with her experience working with tech experts to develop global technology solutions for clients in the mobility space.
Nick Roome, Head of Legal Services for KPMG in the UK, comments: “It’s fantastic to welcome Julia to our growing team. Her fascinating experience is a unique asset for us and I’m looking forward to working with her.”
Julia adds: “I’m really excited to be joining KPMG at a time when immigration and globalisation are major business agenda items. I lived and worked in the US for 10 years, and this gives me insight and empathy for the concerns and challenges facing those living and working abroad.
“KPMG’s focus on technology and the integration between the Legal team and Global Mobility Services was a big draw for me. I’m looking forward to working with colleagues around the world to deliver technology-enabled solutions for clients across the immigration lifecycle.”
