Within: Immigration

Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP is a full-service firm dealing with the full spectrum of issues surrounding global mobility. The global immigration practice is embedded in the firm’s global labor and employment department.  As a result, it can draw on the expertise of the firm’s wider network when there is a need to advise on immigration-related matters such as non-US visas and work permits, foreign employment law and taxation. Washington DC-based Eleanor Pelta and San Francisco-based James Vázquez-Azpiri jointly chair the practice. In a recent work highlight, Vázquez-Azpiri and his team helped new client Proofpoint to develop a new immigration policy, and provided training on how to deal with USCIS site visits and other governmental investigations. Other clients include Cameron Mackintosh, Extreme Networks, Fujitsu America and Hitachi America. Nicholas Hobson was made partner and Christina Gonzaga cf counsel in May 2018. The team was further strengthened by the arrival of Shannon Donnelly to the DC office, and of counsel Laura Garvin to the firm’s Miami office, as well as a team of associates. They all joined from Baker McKenzie LLP. Donnelly has particular expertise in cross-border movement of key executives, managers and workers with specialized knowledge, particularly on behalf of employers in the US and Canada.
