We are seeking an associate attorney with a minimum of 1 year of experience with business immigration, including a strong understanding of the PERM labor certification process and how it is applied to corporate clientele. You will be working with a talented group of immigration attorneys in the New York office of our close-knit, bi-coastal and full-service commercial law firm.

Experience with H-1B, L-1, and PERM applications required
O-1/EB-1 experience a plus
