The increasingly global nature of business has contributed to a growing movement of people and investment from country to country; careful planning and professional assistance are needed to ensure that these international moves take place smoothly. Our Immigration Law Group offers legal representation to a wide range of clients, including corporate human resource departments, foreign investors, and other high net-worth individuals.
As legal advisors to both corporate and individual clients, the Immigration Law Group provides legal advice covering all aspects of inbound Canadian and United States immigration law; its members are licensed to practice law in both Canada and the United States. Further, as immigration law is under federal jurisdiction in both countries, we are capable of representing clients regardless of their intended destination.
The Immigration Law Group provides assistance to foreign nationals seeking temporary or permanent admission to Canada and the United States, whether individually or as part of a corporate move. We can also draw upon the expertise of other practice groups within the firm to provide expert advice on employment law, tax planning, corporate/commercial law (including regulatory, technology, and intellectual property issues), and commercial real estate law, all of which are necessary when foreign companies or individuals bring their business and investment activities to Canada.
Our lawyers are considered leaders in their field of immigration law. They are actively involved in organizations such as the Ontario Bar Association, the American Immigration Lawyers Association, the American Bar Association Section of International Law, the International Bar Association, the Human Resources Professionals Association, and the Society for Human Resource Management. They also lecture and write extensively on the subject of immigration law in the United States and Canada.
The Immigration Law Group represents clients throughout the world. Our immigration lawyers travel on a regular basis to meet with current and new clients and we have an extensive network of worldwide contacts.
