An eminent lawyer James Boswell once wrote in the late 1700’s, “He who has provoked the lash of wit, cannot complain that he smarts from it.” Pro-Link GLOBAL provides immigration services and support for relocation companies and US immigration lawyers, has heeded that advice, “got smarts” and brings a pre-eminent author herself, Sophy King, on board.

Sophy has an international background herself and has lived in many of the countries she offers guidance on. After graduating with a Masters Degree in Oriental Studies (Chinese) from Cambridge University in 2000, Sophy then spent two years on assignment in Japan. She has lived in Moscow, Russia; Vienna, Austria and Qingdao, China. A multi talented linguist, Sophy speaks Mandarin, Japanese, German, Spanish, French and Russian she is uniquely gifted to help Pro-Link GLOBAL’s mission to provide support for relocation companies and US immigration lawyers who do not offer global immigration services themselves.

Sophy joins Pro-Link GLOBAL from a major global immigration services company and has worked in the global immigration field for the last seven years. Sophy specializes in the EMEA region, though her extensive experience also covers the Asia Pacific and Americas regions.

As noted by Andrea Elliott, Senior Global Immigration Lawyer with Pro-Link GLOBAL, “It is a rare event, that an accomplished linguist and immigration services expert, like Sophy King, comes along. Pro-Link GLOBAL, is honored to have her country expertise and wealth of client implementation knowledge on our team.”

Sophy has distinguished herself within the industry; she has published several articles on global immigration issues and is a frequent speaker on immigration trends and hot topics. Sophy will continue authoring and publishing articles and publishing industry updates via the electronic news media delivered to our clients titled “Global BRIEF” and the Blog established as a “go to” resource for those in the know at

At Pro-Link GLOBAL, which is the only visa and immigration services firm, where all employees are Six Sigma Certified, Sophy will use her wealth of immigration expertise for the benefit of our staff and clients to help provide support for US immigration lawyers. Her role is also to provide customized consultations to our clients on complex topics all the while ensuring that our firms’ broad global immigration services knowledge is refined and clearly documented in line with ISO Standards. Pro-Link GLOBAL is proud to be a leading niche provider of high touch concierge visa services.
