Jason Gerrol

Jason Gerrol is an attorney in Nixon Peabody’s Global Immigration practice. He represents a wide range of corporate clients on all aspects of U.S. business immigration law.

What do you focus on?

My practice focuses on helping employers navigate the complex world of employment-based immigration, and ensuring those employers obtain the skilled workers their operations need, while also remaining in full compliance with their immigration-related obligations. I have acquired over 10 years of experience developing and implementing employment-based immigration compliance programs for numerous Fortune 100 companies, distinguished universities and businesses of all sizes. My publications in this field include “Immigration Employer Sanctions and Antidiscrimination Provisions,” published in the Arizona Employment Law Handbook, Vol. 2, 2nd Ed. (2007).

In addition to employers, my practice also focuses on individuals, including foreign national entrepreneurs and investors, individuals of extraordinary ability, and family-based immigration. Many of our nation’s top employers were founded by foreign nationals, and I have worked with such individuals to obtain the U.S. immigration status they need to make their U.S. operations a reality.

What do you see on the horizon?

Our nation’s immigration system has always been complex, and at times contentious, and will remain so in coming years. Our nation’s immigration system has always been complex, and at times contentious, and will likely remain so in coming years. As employers continue to seek the skilled workers their operations need, our immigration system will continue to be a vehicle by which employers can hire top foreign talent. In addition, as companies continue to expand across international borders, the need to transfer key employees across those international boundaries will always be a key component of our immigration needs. As immigration laws change and policies shift, the services of an experienced employment-based immigration attorney will be crucial to ensuring an employer remains in full compliance with their immigration-related obligations.
