“The United States’ ability to attract global talent is not something to be taken for granted. The employment of highly skilled immigrants is an essential part of our business clients’ ability to innovate and maintain a competitive advantage in the marketplace. My experience in this area enables me to see firsthand how restrictive trends within the U.S. immigration system impact our clients’ businesses and the lives of their sponsored employees and their families. It is our privilege to navigate the U.S. immigration process for our business clients and their sponsored employees, wherein we provide both short and long-term strategies and support at every step of the way.” – Scott R. Malyk, Esq.
