As the global economy expands, a company’s competitiveness hinges on its ability to attract top talent from around the world. At Sidley, we help clients navigate through the complex maze of U.S. immigration laws to ensure the seamless hiring of key foreign national employees.
Our immigration practice develops a comprehensive and cost effective strategy to address the particular immigration needs of each client. The legal services we offer include assistance in obtaining temporary visas, permanent residence and U.S. citizenship. We also provide employers with immigration advice related to mergers and acquisitions, corporate law, international tax, I-9 compliance and other labor issues affecting the employment of foreign nationals. We routinely represent clients before the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Department of Labor, Department of State and U.S. Consular Posts worldwide.
Sidley has developed a special online case management system designed to give our clients web-based password access to case information. The system tracks expiration dates, receipt numbers, and other important filing details.
