Growing a successful and competitive business often means reaching around the globe for the right talent. The stakes couldn’t be higher, yet this dynamic area of law is fraught with both complications and risk.
The immigration attorneys at Kane Russell Coleman Logan know the ropes and how to untangle them for you. Global health concerns and other challenges have made it more difficult than ever for businesses to manage their global talent needs. Our attorneys’ practical experience and knowledge help clients bring workers and sometimes their families to the U.S. and keep them here. We shepherd our business clients and their employees from other countries through the complex visa and permitting processes.
If there are two key facts about our immigration practice our clients know well, they are these:
First, our practice exists to help people. We are passionate and care deeply as we work to help achieve the ultimate goal - citizenship. Our clients are people, not files.
Second, our integrated approach takes a holistic view of immigration. It’s a labyrinth, with immigration considerations clients may not even be aware of such as terms of employment, tax, family issues, and more. So, our approach is to draw on the talents and experience of attorneys throughout the firm who can move the mission forward.
Our immigration attorneys help start-ups, small to medium-size enterprises, and public companies address U.S. immigration challenges, carefully weighing all the legal and business factors at play.
