Which one has a better outlook 10 years from now? I think that’s your answer

Would personally go UK for stronger ties to Europe and US, and bigger markets. Downsides will be taxes and healthcare. Cheaper cost of living if you don't stay in the center of London, I'd imagine.

For future opportunities, probably UK - would try to negotiate also

Recently started my own firm and interested in others thoughts. Are there resources out there for practical advice or is it only something that comes with experience? For example, I can take let's say a 601A client and use the resources available to me to learn how to do it. But if a client asks me is it better to marry my fiance in her home country, bring her here on a K-1 or have her visit on a B-2, that's not learned from a book or webinar. How does one learn how to evaluate new cases?
