A business immigration lawyer provides legal services to businesses seeking to hire foreign nationals, establish a business presence in the United States, or otherwise navigate the U.S. immigration system. They work with a variety of clients, including startups, multinational corporations, universities, and research institutions. Some of the specific tasks that a business immigration lawyer may handle include:

  1. Advising businesses on visa options for foreign workers, including H-1B visas for skilled workers, L-1 visas for intracompany transferees, and O-1 visas for individuals with extraordinary abilities.
  2. Preparing and filing visa applications and petitions with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), as well as responding to Requests for Evidence (RFEs) and other inquiries from USCIS.
  3. Conducting compliance audits to ensure that businesses are in compliance with immigration regulations, including I-9 requirements and labor condition application (LCA) obligations.
  4. Representing businesses in immigration-related litigation, such as challenges to visa denials or revocations.
  5. Providing guidance on immigration strategies and best practices to ensure that businesses can attract and retain the talent they need to grow and succeed.

Overall, a business immigration lawyer is focused on helping businesses navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of U.S. immigration law in order to achieve their goals and drive economic growth.
