Corporate Immigration

Businesses across the globe and of all sizes and in all industries and sectors have come to rely on foreign nationals whose education, talents and skills can make them highly valuable or even essential to their employers.

We represent corporations, employees (temporary and permanent), athletes, entertainers, intercompany transfers, new hires, foreign recruits and religious workers, small-businesses, non-profits, hospitals, universities, colleges, religious organizations, trusts, employers and individuals with respect to all aspects of business and commercial related immigration law.

If an employer seeks permanent legal residence for a foreign employee, there are many options.  If an employer wants to simply transfer a foreign employee or manager to an American subsidiary company or an American office, there are many options available.  If an employer requires temporary employment, again, the options are numerous.  Moreover, today’s federal immigration authorities have increasingly placed the cost–civil and criminal–of employing undocumented or incorrectly documented employees. Every day, small and large businesses across the Pennsylvania are faced with I-9 compliance audits, substantial civil fines, and even criminal penalties for inaccurate employee immigration document review and verification and Form I-9 errors and/or omissions.

Norris McLaughlin & Marcus Corporate Immigration Attorneys will work with employers and employees at all levels to ensure that all documents are properly filed and all qualifications are met for the migration of employees and with human resource and corporate legal departments when faced with Form I-9 compliance issues and audits.  Whether the stay is short term or permanent, we can assist in all business immigration needs – from I-9 compliance, I-9 audits, human resource departments, to labor certifications, I-140s, EB-1, EB-2, EB-3, EB-4, EB-5 documents to B1 (short term business travelers) or H-1b (temporary professional employees) and H-2 visas for nonprofessional employees.
