Immigration & Nationality

Overview Press Room

Overview

As the economy becomes increasingly globalized and businesses integrated more closely than ever before, the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act has become a full-scale employment law affecting virtually every company doing business in the U.S., both foreign and domestic. Our Immigration & Nationality Group provides guidance on the full range of issues affecting international businesses, including corporate immigration policies, unlawful immigration practices, compliance with record keeping and immigration anti-discrimination provisions.

On the compliance side, we assist clients with internal audits and the immigration implications of merger and acquisition transactions. Much of our work involves obtaining appropriate non-immigrant or immigrant visas to enable corporations to hire or transfer executives, managers, persons with specialized knowledge or other key personnel temporarily or permanently to the U.S.

This work has led our deep bench of experienced practitioners to be commended by Chambers USA for their “understanding of the law combined with the business needs of the client” and for being “among the best in terms of sheer intelligence.”
