McLane Middleton attorneys assist companies and individuals on a wide array of immigration law issues in the employment context. The firm’s Immigration Law Practice Group manages a large roster of foreign national employees for some of New England’s most important companies, including Lonza Biologics, Velcro Industries, and Hitchiner Manufacturing. Our experience allows us to creatively guide clients through the immigration implications related to employment and business decisions.
We routinely assist employers to ensure I-9 compliance through internal audits and comprehensive training of human resources personnel. As part of a proactive compliance strategy, we help to create and implement effective company policies. The Immigration Law Practice Group also regularly helps employers to comply with the E-Verify requirements. We advise clients on E-Verify compliance, conduct training on how to administer the system, and help them to avoid common pitfalls. We also help companies to work through the complicated steps for obtaining work visas, Green Cards or naturalized citizen status for their foreign worker hires.
McLane Middleton also counsels individuals who are seeking employment opportunities abroad or in the U.S., or who have family connections in the U.S. Depending on individual circumstances, we help clients to obtain temporary work visas, permanent resident status, or naturalized citizen status.
The H-1B visa is one of the most popular work visas in the United States, but is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain due to a shortage. Applications for H-1B visas are accepted on April 1 of each year. McLane Middleton’s immigration attorneys can help your company complete the applications correctly and on time to prevent the application from being rejected from the lottery.
