Labor and Immigration
The firm has a group of experienced lawyers who service various clients in all matters related to labor relations, employment, employee benefits and immigration. In particular, the firm’s expertise consists of counseling services, resolving personnel problems, undertaking a labor audit of company policies and employment-based contracts, and the handling of all kinds of labor disputes. The latter include union grievances, strikes, collective bargaining negotiations, certification elections, unfair labor practice cases, money claims, wage distortion and welfare benefits issues, whether before arbitration bodies or before the courts. The firm’s labor and employment lawyers have been particularly adept at addressing contentious, union-related and job security issues arising from mergers, consolidations, integration of operations in multi -union and multi-bargaining unit enterprises. The firm has been cited in the 1998 Euromoney “Guide To The World’s Leading Labour and Employment Lawyers.”
The firm offers a wide and varied range of immigration services, immigration being in part related to labor practice as it pertains to aliens. Our services include the obtaining at the shortest possible time of work permits and all kinds of visas (e.g. temporary visitor, treaty trader, pre-arranged employee, retiree, E.O. 226, SIRV, Section 13 quota/non quota immigrant, student, BOI/EPZA), and the handling of deportation and citizenship cases.
