Business Immigration

Kramer Levin’s internationally recognized Business Immigration Group is among the largest and most respected immigration practices in the United States. Our team, which consistently receives top-tier rankings from Chambers USA and Chambers Global, includes three of the top 20 business immigration lawyers in the country, as designated by Human Resource Executive.

With decades of experience, our immigration lawyers advise global brands and pre-eminent corporations across a wide range of industries, including media and advertising, financial services, technology, and performing and fine arts. We anticipate, identify and resolve issues before they become problems. Our lawyers help companies develop global workforce plans and mobility strategies, navigate complex immigration laws and policies, and ensure that their mergers, acquisitions, spinoffs and other corporate restructuring transactions both meet their global workforce management needs and comply with U.S. immigration law.

We enable clients to 

  • Recruit, hire and move innovators, professionals and employees with essential education, skills or backgrounds from around the world.
  • Transfer existing employees to fill new roles that require deep company knowledge and an understanding of company culture.
  • Bring talent with extraordinary abilities — whether in creative fields, arts and entertainment, athletics, or business, science or education — to the United States.

We advise our business clients on the best long- and short-term approaches based on their specific needs, including the use of H-1B specialty occupation visas and the L-1 visas for intracompany transfer of executives, managers and employees with specialized knowledge, as well as all other types of nonimmigrant and permanent residence classifications. We also represent individuals who, because of their extraordinary ability or substantial investments in the United States, do not require corporate sponsorship to immigrate.

Our lawyers have cultivated strong working relationships with key members of Congress and decision-makers in the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of State and the Department of Labor, which have enhanced our ability to advocate for clients and help shape immigration policy, regulations and legislation.
