Because of the support of clients, colleagues, and partners like you, EIG is proud to be the trusted legal partner to some of the largest companies in the world.
In February 2019, Erickson Immigration Group hosted a panel on Immigration compliance and tech mobility with NVTC. The event highlighted recent policy positions and goals for tech industry leaders, as well as immigration compliance issues in the wake of increased enforcement. You can listen to that event here.
