At Dearson, Levi and Pantz, we assist domestic and foreign U.S.-based employers with the transfer of skilled and talented foreign employees and professionals to the United States.

Our practice encompasses all aspects of employment-based immigrant and nonimmigrant visas. We provide comprehensive and personalized advice and counsel strengthened by practical legal experience, thorough knowledge of the law, strong case management, and cultural awareness. Through extensive planning, we tailor our services to the specifics of each case, devising innovative strategies to support the needs of our clients whether they are multinational enterprises, start-ups, or individual investors. We recognize that today’s immigration laws and policies of the United States often require intricate, strategic approaches that are unique to each client, demanding a deep understanding of our clients’ business, operations, structures, and goals.

We provide representation on a wide range of employment-based immigration matters, including:

  • Intra-company Transferee Status;
  • H-1B specialty occupation Visas;
  • Treaty Trader or Treaty Investor Visas;
  • Permanent Residence Status;
  • PERM strategies; and
  • Compliance Issues.

We represent companies in virtually all industries, with locations throughout the world.

Our counsel includes both long-term and short-term visa strategies. We also represent individuals who have considerable investments in U.S. business or extraordinary ability in their professional field and, thus, may not necessarily require corporate sponsorship to gain entry into the United States.
