Immigration

Recruiting and retaining foreign talent with corporate immigration sponsorship.

Husch Blackwell’s dedicated team of corporate immigration attorneys counsel clients on a wide-range of immigration matters. We plan and implement practical employment-related immigration sponsorship strategies that enable U.S. employers to hire and retain foreign talent on a short- and long-term basis. Our immigration law team has successfully represented clients in immigration-related cases in industries including healthcare, information technology, manufacturing, education, food and agriculture, energy, telecommunications and research.

Today’s immigration enforcement environment places a premium on effective, comprehensive compliance and calls for a clear understanding of the regulations and enforcement priorities of key federal agencies. We help clients plan and draft processes and procedures, maintain compliance through internal review, and defend against agency actions when they occur. Our paralegals work closely with attorneys in developing immigration solutions for clients and have extensive experience dealing with immigration agencies.

Our corporate immigration team's capabilities include:

  • Short- and long-term work authorization sponsorship, including nonimmigrant visas and permanent residence
  • Immigration planning and policy drafting
  • I-9 and e-verify compliance
  • U.S. Consular representation immigration due diligence for corporate transactions
  • Representation in immigration-related audits and investigations
  • Immigration advising for foreign national investors and startups
  • Immigration and compliance training

Our attorneys are members of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, established to promote justice and advocate for fair and reasonable immigration law and policy.

"Had it not been for the immigration expertise of Husch Blackwell LLP, our top candidate might not have been secured. Kelli Meilink and Christine Fabin are experienced in the intricate details of the visa application process and have an extensive network to ensure positive results. They respond timely to inquiries and created a thorough visa application. They studied our institution, gaining an in-depth knowledge of our mission; then successfully presented our foreign candidate as an unequalled applicant for the position."
