Practice Area


The attorneys in our Immigration Practice provide comprehensive business immigration services to companies and individuals around the world, involving a wide range of immigration matters and visa needs, including nonimmigrant visa petitions, permanent residency (green card) applications, counseling on I-9 compliance, and immigration related litigation

Our clients include Fortune 500 companies and major multinational corporations across a wide range of industries, universities, and cultural institutions, as well as leading healthcare providers, energy companies, and not-for-profit institutions. Our immigration attorneys also successfully represent individuals who wish to start businesses and work in the U.S., such as foreign investors and entrepreneurs.

We provide guidance on complex immigration issues resulting from mergers, acquisitions, and other corporate changes. Our firm has highly reputed and experienced immigration attorneys who assist corporate clients in obtaining temporary and permanent immigration status for their executive, managerial, and professional employees in virtually every visa category. We also represent individuals, who – because of their extraordinary ability in their fields or their substantial investments in the United States – do not require corporate sponsorship to immigrate.

Our firm will provide advice as to the most feasible and/or practical nonimmigrant visa classification that should be pursued for a particular individual. We can also assist in formulating a plan of employment (short or long-term) to accommodate the needs of the employer and/or the employee, as the case may be.

The nature of immigration and naturalization law demands extensive personal contacts, strong liaisons, and individual-centered representation. Credibility and reputation are key ingredients for success at an administrative level. The firm believes that its expertise, reputation, and solid clientele are the foundation for the ongoing success of our practice.

Our immigration attorneys also handle National Interest Waiver cases, representing foreign nationals whose work is potentially in the national interest of the U.S. We secure visas for outstanding researchers and foreign nationals with extraordinary abilities, such as artists, scientists, professional athletes, and entertainers. We also secure visas for domestic workers, such as nannies, and family immigration visas for fiancés of American citizens as well as family members of citizens or permanent residents. We also assist with naturalization applications for permanent residents as well.

We offer a full suite of services to meet the evolving needs of companies and their employees. For most clients, we begin from a strategic perspective. We help you understand compliance requirements; we then create a process that will support your needs and explore the use of technology to increase efficiency. Our goal is to create a more efficient and less onerous visa sponsorship program than traditional models.

Our goal is not to simply get the task done – it is to deliver positive results, in the shortest possible time, and with the least amount of burden on the sponsored employee, while ensuring your company remains in compliance at every step of the business visa process. We streamline that process for the employee and your company, while providing a supportive experience for your employees.

Compliance Services

In recent years, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents have turned their focus on U.S. employers. Now, more than ever, U.S. companies must ensure that they are fully compliant with employment authorization requirements. Even relatively minor violations can result in business interruptions, fines, criminal proceedings, or even revocation of business licenses.

We represent companies in ICE I-9 audits and agency worksite enforcement actions. We also train management on and help draft I-9 employment eligibility verification policies, with an eye to avoiding liabilities under the Immigration Reform and Control Act’s (IRCA) national origin and citizenship discrimination and document abuse provisions. We routinely conduct independent, external I-9 audits to correct any deficiencies before an agency audit.

Our attorneys work to constantly improve companies’ I-9 systems and employment authorization practices so those companies can quickly respond to an audit. We ensure that the proper I-9 reverification process is conducted, and that verification is properly conducted on all employees. We also help employers properly respond to Social Security no-match letters and counsel employers on the legal use of E-Verify.
