Hogan Lovells US LLP’s ‘very strong’ group gives advice that is ‘detail-oriented and always backed by in-depth knowledge’. The Washington DC-based practice is led by Beth Peters and Aleksandar Dukic. Peters regularly provides legal and policy advice on legislative initiatives affecting international trade and immigration matters. Dukic assists clients in various industries in sponsoring individuals for immigrant and non-immigrant visa status, as well as on export certifications, I-9 verifications, E-Verify, audits and other compliance matters under immigration regulations. Dean & Company and its affiliated entity DC Energy Management retained Dukic to obtain authorization of its foreign national employees to work in the US, both for temporary non-immigrant visas and permanent residency cards.
