Courtney New leads Nixon Peabody’s Global Immigration practice. She represents a wide range of corporate clients from startups to large multi-national corporations on all aspects of U.S. business immigration law.
Today my practice is focused on helping employers hire and retain the foreign national talent they need to drive their businesses forward. I make sure that clients successfully navigate the complexities and challenges involved in securing non-immigrant visas, permanent residence, labor certification and naturalization. I enjoy working with clients and their employees through the full immigration life-cycle, as their businesses and lives develop.
There are still some U.S. employers who can say that they have never had to navigate our complex immigration system in order to hire the talent they need. But in the coming years those employers will become increasingly rare and those that want to compete and retain top talent will need to become well-versed in immigration processes. Employers who rely on science, technology, engineering and math expertise will be the most impacted, as over a third of the graduates of U.S. advanced degree programs in these fields are now foreign nationals. Employers who can work with employees to manage their immigration processes over the long-term will have a competitive advantage.
