Global Employment & Immigration

The business environment for companies with global operations is changing—quickly, substantively, and permanently. Our global team of labor, employment, immigration, and benefits lawyers counsels companies on the issues affecting the global workforce. We advise clients on cross-border projects involving employees and workplace laws in North America, Asia, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East. Our full-service team helps multinational employers manage their global workforces in line with their global business objectives.

We work with employers to manage immigration and global mobility needs as part of a broad spectrum of corporate operational and legal issues. We recognize the close connections between a multinational corporation’s immigration program and its other essential operations, including employment policies, corporate compliance and governance, and plans for expansion and corporate development. To support company operations, we counsel clients on US visas and permanent residence, provide global immigration services for movement of employees to and between countries worldwide, and advise on immigration compliance.

Morgan Lewis works with a trusted network of labor, employment, and immigration counsel around the world. When necessary, we draw on our well-established local counsel relationships throughout Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East on behalf of our clients. This international counsel network allows us to coordinate and manage cross-border projects, while providing practical, commercial, and cost-effective advice.
