their Service Philosophy

Turnkey immigration solutions for growing companies, informed by decades of in-the-trenches experience.

Our legal experts leverage decades of attorney experience to case process at an expert level using modern technology. When the need arises, we also do a deep dive with our clients to strategically develop and leverage corporate immigration policies to attract and retain the top foreign talent.

Situated in the San Francisco Bay Area, we have worked with hundreds of scaling technology companies throughout the country and have represented clients from all of the world. From our vantage point in the top technology hub in the world, we are keenly attuned to the tremendous battle for top notch foreign employees that modern companies are faced with and guide our clients to avoid the associated pitfalls.

When working with a company as in-house counsel, we fully assess the company’s existing matters as well as internal processes. We then go through a series of steps to develop and implement internal immigration policies while training stakeholders to ensure that candidates and employees experience a cohesive, transparent, and efficient immigration service from the company to maximize employee satisfaction with this key area.

Our joint value proposition is simple. We save entrepreneurs and companies time and money by simplifying the U.S. immigration process. By separating the important work that require legal expertise from the busy work that can be processed efficiently with technology, we pass the savings in time and resources directly to our clients.
