To remain competitive in today’s global marketplace, health systems must attract and retain top talent from around the world. While U.S. employers have the opportunity to select the best workers from a pool that extends beyond the domestic workforce, hiring a foreign worker presents many unique legal challenges. Our Immigration Law Practice Group includes immigration attorneys that work across New York state in our Buffalo, Ithaca, Long Island, New York City, Albany, Syracuse and Rochester offices. Our immigration lawyers focus on strategies – including immigrant visas for permanent U.S. resident status and temporary visas for foreign nationals – to ensure that health care organizations are able to hire, transfer, and retain the brightest and best non-U.S. talent.
Through our decades of service, Harris Beach immigration attorneys have earned the trust and respect of clients in a wide variety of disciplines. By developing and implementing global talent acquisition programs, allowing clients to plan for and support the onboarding of the best talent from anywhere in the world, our team has become trusted advisors to organizations in the health care field. Our attorneys and experienced paralegals have a record of success in representing high-volume health care organizations throughout the state with a suite of nonimmigrant and immigrant visas, as well as complex J-1 waiver issues.
We have a sophisticated understanding of the laws, regulatory bodies and the intricacies of immigration processes and compliance standards. While much of our practice involves preparation, submission and prosecution of immigration applications, we also spend a significant amount of time advising and counseling our corporate and institutional clients on general immigration issues. We apply ingenuity with an eye toward what is practical and cost-effective.

We also prepare and manage more than 1,000 immigration cases each year for large hospital systems and universities across the country.
