Faegre Baker Daniels assists clients worldwide with U.S. employment-based visa petitions, I-9 compliance, international visas and work permits, and strategic planning and execution of international transfers of employees.
Temporary & Permanent U.S. Work Visa Petitions
We advise on and prepare the full range of temporary and permanent U.S. employment-based visa petitions. Using interactive web-based technology, we track visa expiration dates and provide online case status reports which help our clients better manage their immigration caseload. We also advise on the immigration impact of corporate changes, such as mergers and acquisitions and reductions in force.
I-9 Compliance Procedures & Audits
When companies need assistance in establishing I-9 compliance procedures, our immigration lawyers provide guidance on documentation and employment eligibility issues that arise in the hiring or re-verification process. Our immigration attorneys and employment law litigators also work collaboratively to defend employers who are subject to I-9 audits, worksite enforcement actions, and immigration-related discrimination claims at both the administrative agency and judicial levels.
Through our offices in the United States, the United Kingdom and China — along with our international network of local counsel — our global mobility team advises and represents multinational companies transferring their employees around the globe. As part of a full-service law firm, our global mobility team includes lawyers who focus on visas and work permits, as well as those who advise on employment compliance, employee benefits, and tax and corporate issues related to the international transfer of employees. In providing global mobility counsel, we take into account the employer's business culture and objectives to develop efficient and practical solutions to complex global employment matters.
