Business Immigration

Overview

For our many multinational clients, nothing can be more important than having their greatest asset – human capital – authorized to work in the U.S. when needed. Business immigration law is not, however, commodity-level work. It is, in fact, highly technical and requires sophisticated counsel. Honigman’s Business Immigration practice group is a premier provider of business immigration services. We have a highly sophisticated and effective business immigration practice that provides far greater value than low-cost service providers. Through a dedicated team of highly experienced Business Immigration lawyers and paralegals, each of whom practices exclusively in the area of business immigration law, Honigman provides unparalleled counsel to businesses operating on a global stage.

Honigman’s Business Immigration attorneys utilize the services of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) to keep abreast of the rapidly changing area of immigration law, changes which often have a significant impact on how our clients operate their businesses. Our Business Immigration practice group members work as a team to ensure that client questions are addressed and work is completed in a timely and efficient manner. We are committed to providing world-class, timely, cost-effective, value-added services to our clients and being responsive to their needs.

Our attorneys understand that clients require answers to their questions as soon as possible and make themselves available to answer those questions, whenever they might arise. Specifically, they answer their own telephones and respond to emails and voicemails as quickly as possible, including during evenings, weekends and holidays.

Honigman also utilizes the latest technology options available to provide world-class immigration legal services. Honigman’s Business Immigration attorneys utilize AILA InfoNet and other media publications, webinars, and conferences to remain informed about changes in business immigration law practices and procedures. The firm subscribes to AILALink, which allows our immigration practice group members to perform research on multiple reference publications through one convenient source. Our attorneys and paralegals use the immigration case management system INSZoom to draft and store all immigration forms.
