U.S. Companies are increasingly bringing talented foreign national executives, managers, and professionals to the United States while foreign companies have an increasing need to expand their business into U.S. markets.
SAPG represents corporate clients in all phases of the hiring and transfer of foreign nationals – executives, managers, professionals, investors, and performing artists – to the U.S. 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.
We counsel our clients about the best short- and long-term visa strategies for their specific needs. We advise them on a wide range of business immigration matters, including H-1B specialty occupation matters, treaty investor visas, intra-company transferee status, and other types of non-immigrant and permanent residence strategies. We also advise on the retention of permanent residence status and on naturalization matters. We provide advice related to the immigration-related aspects of corporate restructurings, such as mergers and acquisitions, due diligence reviews, divestitures, and other related matters.
