Immigration Consequences Of Mergers, Acquisitions and Corporate Restructuring (and immigration counsel's role in these processes)
Counseling on Immigration Law Concerns in Corporate and Business Transactions
Success in the global marketplace may require a significant transition in business operations. However, any decisions involving mergers, acquisitions or other business transactions or restructurings must necessarily include considerations of any potential immigration law issues.
The Immigration Law Group of Meyner and Landis LLP is highly experienced in proactively advising new business entities and corporate restructures to consider the potential immigration consequences of various company structures at the outset. That way, our business immigration lawyers manage client expectations and ensure that the corporate client is in the best position to achieve its desired employment and immigration-related goals.
