Foreign nationals as students, instructors and researchers—are often vital to an institution’s operations.
Like any other organization, educational institutions need to follow particular steps to ensure compliance and protection of technology and information. And the immigration and tax issues that arise with foreign nationals are as important for recruiting and retention as they are for compliance.
We are at the forefront of counseling colleges and universities on all the issues that arise concerning foreign nationals, including drafting compliance programs, counseling on export controls and advising on how to obtain immigration benefits for faculty, staff and students.
Higher education clients benefit from our broad international business experience, coupled with our presence in key international markets.
We regularly assist in establishing foreign campuses and programs—helping universities in China to coordinate and develop foundation programs with U.S. counterparts. We also help for-profit and nonprofit foreign organizations to establish and register entities in China, dealing with all the appropriate government authorities.
