US Immigration Services

Our national team of US Immigration lawyers and dedicated professionals provide a range of immigration services – from short-term business traveler assessments to initial nonimmigrant visa applications, to extensions and renewals, to employer- and family-sponsored permanent residence processes and beyond.

We work with organizations to shape mobility, immigration and HR policies that are compliant with immigration laws and regulations and are geared toward achieving short- and long-term talent strategy in the US.

As a truly global practice, we connect with EY resources across North America and around the globe to assist in providing high-quality, client-focused service, regardless of geography. We employ leading-edge technologies and operational models to achieve efficiency and agility in the delivery of quality US business immigration services.

We focus exclusively on business immigration and stay current with the latest US immigration trends, policies and leading practices through regular submissions to US authorities, with active involvement via professional associations such as the American Immigration Lawyers Association, as well as ongoing government liaison activity. We move quickly to update you on changes to laws and practices that impact your US talent agenda and the employee experience.

Understanding the nature of our clients’ businesses and industry practices is of vital importance to us. We work with organizations in a wide range of industries and can offer advisory services that are specific to your business needs, from talent acquisition and retention to compliance audits, to a comprehensive review of your organization’s US immigration program. We can also support your human resource programs to support compliance on such matters as I-9 employment eligibility and E-Verify regulations.
