Efficiency: We work with you to streamline the immigration process; developing organizational systems to facilitate the immigration process and alleviate the burden on legal and human resource departments. We realize that each client has its own needs and preferences. We provide advice on suggested systems, but ultimately we defer to the client's rules and preferences for handling the immigration function.
Partnering: We provide practical, clear suggestions for handling immigration matters, but always discuss with the client the alternatives, possible issues and business risks involved. We view our work as a team effort with the client, and seek to ensure that the client agrees with and understands our strategy decisions.
References: The best source of information on the quality of our service is our clients. Most of our clients chose us after being represented by other firms. They are our best source of references as to how we do things differently--and better. Please ask us for client references.
