Department profile by Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP

With the globalization of the United States economy, companies have an increasing need to bring talented foreign national executives, managers and professionals to the United States. But these needs are often challenged by restrictive immigration laws and policies. As a result, the field of business immigration law has taken on increasing importance. Our internationally recognized Business Immigration Group meets the requirements of leading companies and other organizations operating in the United States, particularly multinational companies with locations throughout the world.

We represent corporate clients in all phases of the hiring and transfer of foreign nationals -- executives, managers, professionals, investors and performing artists--to the United States. We also represent individuals who, because of their extraordinary ability in their fields or because of their substantial investments in the United States, do not require corporate sponsorship to immigrate.
