The field of immigration law has taken on increasing importance in the current and continuing globalization. We represent foreign and US corporations and individuals in all phases of business immigration law. We counsel clients about the best temporary or permanent legal strategies for hiring, transferring of foreign nationals-executives, managers, investors, professionals, scientists, professional athletes, physicians and performing artists-to the U.S. We represent individuals, who, because of their substantial investments in the United States or their extraordinary skills in their fields, may sponsor themselves and their families. We also advise on the retention of permanent residence status, and on naturalization matters.
Typical cases that we handle are: for example, a talented foreign national with successful companies oversees wants to do business in the US and permanently move to the USA. Or a foreign company that wants to transfer its manager or and executive in the USA to either open up a subsidiary company or run the US subsidiary. We also represent the investor who wants to make an investment of at least $1,000,000 ($500,000 in high unemployment or rural areas) in a business in the United States that creates employment for at least 10 U.S. workers. We advise on a wide range of immigration matters, including hiring H-1B foreign professionals, inter-company transferees, treaty-trader investors, on corporate and self-sponsorships for the retention of permanent residence status, and on acquiring US citizenship.
