Constangy, Brooks, Smith and Prophete, LLP is pleased to announce the opening of a new office in Raleigh, N.C. The new office extends the national labor and employment law firm’s network to 24 offices across 15 states, including long-standing offices in Asheville and Winston-Salem.

The first partner to join the Raleigh office is Justin Coffey, who comes to Constangy from Ogletree Deakins. Bringing more than 14 years of experience in immigration law, Mr. Coffey advises large multinational companies on all aspects of employment-based immigration as well as I-9 compliance and E-Verify. He has served on the Board of Directors of the International and Immigration Law Section of the Atlanta Bar Association, including serving as Chair of the Board.

“Immigration is one of the most complex and rapidly-changing areas of employment law, and is hugely important to companies working to compete when the market for global talent is hot,” said Neil H. Wasser, chair of Constangy’s executive committee. “Justin’s extensive experience is a great complement to the strong team we have already established to serve clients across the U.S. and around the world. And we’re particularly excited to be able to develop a presence in a vibrant and growing market like the Research Triangle.”

“Constangy has an outstanding immigration practice and is known for its collaborative environment and commitment to diversity,” noted Coffey. “I’m excited to join the team and help grow the practice in Raleigh and around the country.”
