We do everything possible to help immigrant entrepreneurs…and sometimes we do the impossible
Startups are often about breaking the old, established ways, and solving problems with unique solutions. So just because other immigration lawyers couldn’t figure out how to help you, doesn’t mean there isn’t a solution. We tend to look at startup situations differently, and often “hack” the legal code to help immigrant entrepreneurs.
With offices in Silicon Valley, Toronto, and New York we are strategically located to support startup entrepreneurs and their employees who want to live and prosper in the United States. Our experienced team has seen it all when working to keep people in the United States. We focus on making it happen for our clients so you can focus on what you came to this country to do, grow your startup.
