Seyfarth Shaw LLP’s ‘excellent’ business immigration group is ‘extremely responsive, competent and efficient’, and conveys ‘a feeling of true partnership’. James King and Russell Swapp co-chair the practice, which prides itself on being tech-savvy: partners invest significant time and resources developing systems and databases that deliver immigration management programs to clients.
