Providing immigration for corporations requires a unique set of skills from an attorney team. Our firm is structured with dedicated client teams that learn the company and become a seamless extension of the client’s human resource, managerial, and legal team. The corporate immigration attorneys at KILP take a personalized approach to each client and case from routine H-1Bs to complex O-1s and EB-1s, strategize with the client team, take the time to understand goals, and align with business needs and policies.
Immigration for Corporations
Corporations require a broad spectrum of immigration services that can include securing temporary work visas, programs to sponsor employees for permanent residency, visas for executives, investors, or other distinguished employees, travel planning and advice, corporate policy development, global immigration, and compliance.
Temporary Visas and Work Authorization
The corporate immigration attorney teams are adept at assisting corporations in securing visas and work authorizations for their foreign employees and ensuring they comply with all relevant regulations. Whether your corporation needs assistance with H-1B visas (subject to the cap or cap-exempt), L-1 visas, O-1 visas, or any other type of work authorization, our experienced business immigration attorneys can help.
Sponsoring Employees for Green Cards
Corporations with immigration policies to sponsor employees for green cards need assistance in navigating the complex process of employment-based immigration, including the PERM process for EB-2 and EB-3 visas, sponsoring exceptional employees for EB-1 visas, and more. Our team has extensive experience in this area, and we are committed to helping our clients find the best possible solutions for their needs.
Business and Investor Visas
We assist corporations and their employees in securing business and investor visas, including E-1 and E-2 visas, as well as EB-5 visas for foreign investors. We understand the importance of these visas for corporations looking to expand their global reach, and we are dedicated to helping our clients achieve their goals.
Travel Advice for Employees
In the growing global economy, international business travel is growing with it. While it is not as hazardous as it was during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021, foreign nationals still need careful planning when crossing U.S. borders with very few exceptions. The legal advice needs to be extremely individualized based on each employee’s specific situation.
Compliance and Audits
Corporations are at risk of fines and penalties in the event of non-compliance. It is essential to have immigration legal counsel provide guidance on compliance and audits related to immigration regulations, ensuring that they comply with all relevant laws and regulations. KILP has a dedicated compliance practice area to assist with a variety of proactive programs to ensure compliance before problems arise. We also assist with audits conducted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and the Department of Labor (DOL).
Corporate Immigration Policy Development
A critical – and often overlooked — element of corporate immigration success is to develop a corporate immigration policy. When providing immigration for corporations, KILP attorneys work with corporate clients to develop immigration policies that align with their business values, goals, and objectives. Our team has experience working with corporations of all sizes, and we are committed to helping our clients achieve their immigration-related goals.
Immigration for Small Corporations
For corporations with a small number of immigrant employees, the process of securing work authorizations and visas for foreign employees can be daunting. HR teams and hiring managers should not need to navigate the complex system on their own or lose a candidate or employee because they need sponsorship. The KILP corporate attorneys provide immigration for small corporations by assisting with every step of the process, from determining which visa is right for your employee to submitting the necessary paperwork to the appropriate government agency. We understand that small businesses have unique needs, and we are committed to providing personalized legal services that are tailored to meet those needs and within budget.
Immigration for Midsized Corporations
Midsized corporations that are expanding their operations (domestically and abroad) require legal guidance that is both comprehensive and strategic. KILP has deep experience in providing immigration for midsized corporations in times of year-over-year growth or as a result of mergers and acquisitions. Our corporate immigration attorneys will help you navigate the complex world of employment-based immigration, including PERM labor certifications, EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3 visas, and more. We work with you to develop a legal strategy that is aligned with your business goals and objectives, ensuring that you have the legal support you need to achieve your desired outcomes.
Immigration for Large Corporations
Corporations with a large number of sponsored employees in the U.S. or a global workforce face unique challenges when it comes to immigration regulations. With high-volume filings, special support for executive-level employees, and compliance, KILP’s attorneys provide exceptional immigration for corporations through specialized teams needed in each area of support. With a central support team, KILP provides additional, comprehensive resources for EB-1 immigration, investors, compliance, and even litigation.
