Advice and Counsel in connection with Corporate Restructuring and Mergers and Acquisitions

Every corporate restructuring has the potential to raise critical issues under the U.S. immigration laws. A thorough review and consideration of the possible impact of each proposed corporate reorganization, especially in the context of mergers and acquisitions, is imperative to obtain the most positive outcome and protect the client’s interests to the fullest extent possible. Pre-deal services include conducting due-diligence reviews, providing advice regarding the most advantageous corporate structure including the establishment of subsidiaries, and conducting reviews of employees in nonimmigrant status whose employment authorization may be affected by proposed transactions.


Immigration Compliance Audits and Investigations

We regularly work with human resources personnel to reduce employers’ potential exposure to government fines, penalties and other employer-sanctions for irregularities in record-keeping and reporting. We take a proactive approach and offer I-9, LCA and Public Access File compliance reviews, as well as assisting in the development and documentation of HR processes related to immigration matters and record-keeping.


In-House Training and Seminars

The Firm offers on-site corporate seminars and training programs designed to familiarize human resources professionals with continually evolving immigration laws and policies and to provide up-to-date information to foreign national employees regarding their obligations and options under U.S. immigration laws.
