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 plan recruitment and mobility strategies that work around immigration roadblocks to ensure the right talent is accessible to our clients. We advise businesses regarding compliance with I-9 employment verification rules and counsel employers involved in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Department of Labor audits and investigations, and Department of Justice immigration-related unfair hiring practices investigations. Because immigration is based on federal law, our attorneys can assist clients located anywhere in the United States and abroad.
Experienced Immigration Counsel
Our immigration attorneys craft strategies and solutions to meet unique immigration needs. We anticipate the areas where the U.S. government may challenge a case and reverse engineer it to lower the risk of denial. As counselors, we help clients adapt their immigration sponsorship policies and compliance programs to keep pace with ever-evolving standards.
We have a track record of success in cases that present significant hurdles and require “out of the box thinking.” For example, when a U.S. based global electronics company had an aggressive plan to recruit more than 100 elite graduate and post-graduate students from universities around the world, we developed strategies to use alternative immigration categories such as O-1, L-1, and TN as well as expediting permanent resident sponsorship to ensure the company’s desired foreign student talent was authorized to work in the U.S.
Our attorneys help companies that must account to CFOs for immigration legal expenses, as well as individuals struggling through the immigration process on a minimal budget. We want our clients to be satisfied and more productive, and we work to develop services and agreements to fit client budgets and achieve cost predictability.
Additionally, our attorneys add value by offering the following services:
- On-site Training;
- Town Hall Meetings;
- Status and Strategy Conferences;
- Newsletter for HR Professionals;
- Newsletter for Foreign National Employees; and
- Client Alerts.
Our immigration attorneys use leading secure, web-based technology for case management, so immigration coordinators, managers and employees can access appropriate case information on a 24/7 basis. We maintain a progressive immigration website (http://immigration.dinsmore.com), which includes useful tools, helpful summaries and alerts relating to the latest developments that may impact potential strategies.
