The National Law Journal named Chicago partner Marketa Lindt to its 2019 “Immigration Law Trailblazers,” an annual special supplement which spotlights a handful of individuals that are “truly agents of change” in the practice area.
Marketa was recognized for leading Sidley’s I-9 compliance practice and working with multinational companies. The supplement also commended her recent election as the incoming class president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. Her role as an officer of the bar includes a number of important initiatives to protect the immigration system from attack through regulations and subregulatory activity. The supplement quoted Marketa saying she is “‘still passionate about immigration law,’” and that she “‘feels fortunate to work with talented people from all over the world who make our country a more competitive and vibrant place.’”
