Erickson Immigration Group is excited to announce that Hiba Mona Anver, EIG partner, will join The George Washington University College of Law’s Adjunct Faculty as Professorial Lecturer in Law. GWU College of Law is a highly ranked, top-tier law school, and Hiba will teach immigration law in the upcoming spring semester.
Named by Business Insider as one of the top immigration attorneys for start-ups, Hiba’s practice focus, as a partner and business immigration lawyer, is primarily on the employment-based nonimmigrant visa and green card process. She is a trusted advisor to corporate clients on complex immigration matters that result from corporate restructuring, including mergers, acquisitions, and reductions-in-force. Hiba leads a team with members across the US, Europe, Mexico, and Singapore, supporting clients in various industries, including tech, social media, e-sports, hospitality, fintech, e-commerce, retail, medicine/oncology, investment, and education.
Within EIG, Hiba is the first woman, person of color, and first-generation American to lead an internal legal team. She brings to her work as an immigration attorney a personal understanding of the immigrant experience and achieving the “American Dream.” Hiba is the daughter of immigrants and the first lawyer in her family’s history.
As a leader in the immigration law and global mobility industry, Hiba is a frequent speaker on immigration issues and has presented at various conferences and events, including for American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), Bay Area Mobility Management, Worldwide ERC, Public Leadership Education Network (PLEN), and SHRM. She has briefed congressional staffers on Capitol Hill and has provided commentary to television/publication media outlets such as CNBC, Business Insider, PBS Nightly Business Report, The SF Chronicle, Bloomberg Law, and Politico Pro, and is a frequent contributor to the EIG Immigration Nerds podcast, which she co-founded.
