Most businesses today face unprecedented competition. The need for flexible global operations and the demand for technical skills has created new challenges in creating and maintaining a workforce that will help your company stay competitive. With increased security challenges, tightened quotas and a maze of fast-changing laws, getting and keeping the foreign workers you need is increasingly difficult.
What Sets Us Apart
Constangy is nationally recognized for its proficiency in business immigration law. We have experienced and dedicated immigration lawyers who work with domestic and international corporations and businesses in developing strategies to facilitate the international transfer of key workers.
Constangy’s immigration practice group understands that immigration issues are of the utmost importance to your foreign nationals and their family members, and we strive to interact with these persons both professionally and compassionately.
Our goal in serving our clients’ immigration needs is to provide a straightforward and cost-effective approach to work visas and green cards.
- We provide summaries of information and documentation needed for visa preparation to our contact persons in the company and interface directly as requested with foreign nationals. We are committed to continuous innovation that drives efficiency and adds value.
- We make use of an electronic immigration case management system which not only permits us to generate the various immigration-related forms but also to receive and send information and forms electronically. The system allows us to track all case information and documents, and set up automatic reminders of important dates for visa and work authorization applicants.
- Our services are provided at a reasonable cost and on an expedited basis. Our “flat fee” billing system assists our clients in controlling costs. Although we use highly skilled paralegals for preparation of certain forms and related documentation, each case is overseen from start to finish by one of our experienced immigration attorneys.
