Immigration and Citizenship Issues for Non-U.S. Entrepreneurs

When: Wed January 16, 2013 9:30 am

Organization: McCarter & English, LLP

Location: Cambridge Innovation Center One Broadway 5th Floor - Havana Training Room Cambridge, MA 02142


Some of the most successful “American” companies were founded by immigrants, but U.S. immigration laws make it  difficult for foreign nationals in the United States to work for the companies they founded.  In this program, Amy Haberman of McCarter & English will discuss current visa options for foreign-national entrepreneurs and the prospects for comprehensive immigration reform.

Amy represents domestic and multi-national corporate clients across a variety of industries on a full range of employment-based immigration matters, including the recruitment and transfer of foreign national executives, managers, and professionals, the immigration consequences of mergers and acquisitions, the I-9 process, and compliance with Department of Labor statutory and regulatory recordkeeping requirements. Amy also has significant experience counseling individual clients on family based immigration matters including the acquisition of permanent resident status and citizenship. Amy has been published in the International Contracts Advisor and has been a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association since 1999.

Doors will open for networking at 9:30am.

This program is part of McCarter & English’s ongoing series at CIC on legal and business topics for entrepreneurs and emerging companies.  Programs are held once or twice each month and are open to members of the CIC and their guests, as well as to the greater Boston entrepreneurial community.  Contact: Rick Lucash, 617-449-6568,, @ricklucash  Benjamin Hron, 617-449-6584,, @HronEsq
