Lindquist helps employers address the gamut of immigration-related issues they face when recruiting and retaining a skilled, compliant workforce. Known for our proactive, consultative approach, we work with companies to navigate the complex immigration process to obtain immigrant (permanent residence) and nonimmigrant (temporary) status for their executives and managers, individuals of exceptional ability, business visitors, workers in specialty occupations, trainees and entrepreneurs, among others.
Our immigration practice covers all areas of immigration law for the investor or entrepreneur including E-2 small business visas, EB-5 investor visas and the full spectrum of temporary work visa options (e.g. B, E3, F-1 (CPT & OPT/EAD) H-1B, H4/EAD H3, J, L-1A and B, TN, O-1, J-1) and permanent visa options. We also have an efficient and reliable process for conducting I-9 audits that has been tested and trusted by leading businesses in key sectors, including manufacturing, food and agriculture, temporary staffing and publishing.
When preventative measures are not an option, we devote significant attention to businesses targeted in inspections and raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). We have repeated experience guiding employers through I-9 inspections, asserting their rights during worksite raids and mitigating risk during investigations.
