The complexity of the U.S. immigration system stems from a basic conflict between businesses seeking “the best person for the job” and U.S. immigration laws aiming to protect U.S. workers while preventing lower cost foreign labor from depressing the U.S. labor market.

However, the government also recognizes the significant contributions foreign businesses, entrepreneurs and workers have made to the U.S. economy, and the importance of a relatively free flow of goods and services around the world. In order to reconcile these two conflicting realities, the government developed specific policies and procedures to allow foreign workers, entrepreneurs and business people to invest, work and immigrate to the U.S.

Phillips Lytle understands the need for immigration solutions for corporations, entrepreneurs, professionals, investors, business owners, non-profit organizations and individuals. Our depth of experience and knowledge with this broad base of clients allows us to address the intricacies and variations of each immigration case, and to develop and execute strategies to meet business and personal goals.
