Our US immigration practice has extensive experience in all areas of US immigration and nationality law.
We represent a wide range of clients across a variety of industries from large multinational corporations to start-ups, investors, and other individuals. We help companies expand into the US, transfer personnel to the US, and employ workers in the US in non-immigrant status or as permanent residents (aka “green card holders”). We act for investors seeking green cards under the EB-5 scheme, as well as individuals seeking green cards through other routes or wishing to obtain US visas for themselves or their relatives.
We also assist clients with all kinds of US nationality matters, including clients wishing to acquire US citizenship for themselves or their children, clients who believe they have lost their US citizenship and wish to acquire formal proof of their loss of nationality, and dual-citizens who have found the obligations involved in maintaining dual citizenship too burdensome and wish to give up their US citizenship.
