Immigration

Many businesses require immigration advice in an increasingly challenging global economy. The typical human resource professional or in-house lawyer now has more responsibilities than ever — and limited time to spend on immigration matters.

Multinational companies need to relocate workers from abroad to the United States, and U.S. companies look abroad to find the most qualified workers. Moving people across borders raises highly technical issues involving visas, work authorization and taxation. Complying with immigration requirements can be challenging and time-consuming. In the post September 11 world, additional complexity and new governmental requirements mean both large and small organizations need skilled immigration counsel more than ever.

We help U.S. and foreign employers obtain visas for foreign nationals to work in the United States as managers, professionals and other specialized employees. We advise businesses regarding compliance with I-9 employment verification rules and counsel employers involved in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or Department of Labor audits and investigations. And because immigration is based on federal law, our attorneys can assist clients located anywhere in the United States and abroad.
