CORPORATE IMMIGRATION

As an immigration and business law firm, one of our core specialties is to assist our business clients in managing their global HR mobility needs entering Canada, the United States, Mexico and other international destinations. Many of our clients, some publicly traded corporations, have hundreds of employees that are needed in multiple jurisdictions, and their business success relies on their ability to seamlessly move their talent globally and often on a moment’s notice. This includes business visitor temporary visits, project based short term assignments, temporary work assignments for multiple years, and also permanent employee relocation.

In some instances, our clients move over 70 employees at a time for major projects, which requires significant attention to detail and organization. We specialize in meeting our corporate clients’ broad global mobility needs, and do so by providing a responsive turn-a-round and at the same time, cost certainty with our fixed fee pricing model. Our clients know the cost of their mobility activities at the beginning of every engagement, which allows them to budget projects with confidence. Our goal is to provide services that meet clients’ unique global mobility requirements, and while many engagements move large numbers of employees, the success of each individual application, is our focus. We understand the importance of tracking projects, travel dates, document expiry dates and all of the factors that go into effectively managing the ongoing global mobility demands of our business clients.

We have a team that includes lawyers that are licensed in both the United States and Canada, as well as a global network of partners to service our clients’ international mobility needs outside of North America, including the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, South America, Africa and the Middle East.

CANADA/USA IMMIGRATION

CANADA/USA IMMIGRATION

Canada:

It is trite to say that we live in a global economy as we continue to see increases in international investment and labour mobility throughout the world.  At Pier Law, we help facilitate the mobilization of individuals internationally, whether their move is based on family or individual considerations, or in connection with their employer or investment activities.  We prepare a broad range of both personal and business Canadian immigration visa applications.

USA:

The United States has long been the number one choice for immigrants worldwide. Toted as the “land of opportunity” and home of the American Dream the United States is home to nearly 20% of the world’s immigrant population.  At Pier Law, we help facilitate our clients’ realization of their “American Dream” either temporarily in the form of non-immigrant visas or permanently by way of immigrant visas (green cards) and naturalization.  We prepare a broad range of both personal and business U.S. immigration visa applications including, but not limited to:

* B1/B2

* H1-B

* TN

* L-1

* E-2
