Recruiting and retaining foreign talent.

Husch Blackwell counsels clients on the long-range effects of today’s immigration-related decisions. We plan and implement practical employment-related sponsorship strategies that enable U.S. employers to hire and retain foreign talent on a short- and long-term basis. Our team has successfully represented clients in sponsorship cases in industries including healthcare, information technology, manufacturing, education, food and agriculture, energy, telecommunications and research. 

Today’s enforcement environment places a premium on effective, comprehensive compliance and calls for a clear understanding of the regulations and enforcement priorities of key federal agencies. We help clients plan and draft processes and procedures, maintain compliance through internal review, and defend against agency actions when they occur. The paralegals on our team work closely with attorneys in developing immigration solutions for clients and have extensive experience dealing with local, state, federal and immigration officials.
