Corporate Reorganizations: Avoiding Disruptive Immigration Consequences
May 21, 2020
2:00 PM (ET)
Corporate reorganizations, including mergers, acquisitions, spin-offs, foreign office closures, etc., carry with them both due diligence issues, as well as both nonimmigrant and immigrant visa assessments. How immigration counsel responds—and whether negative immigration consequences will result—may depend on when immigration counsel is informed of a reorganization. Our panel of experts will discuss due diligence obligations both before and after closing, and they will address whether potentially negative immigration consequences may be avoided or corrected.
- How Does the Transaction Format (e.g., Merger/Spin-Off/Reverse Merger/Asset Sale, etc.) Affect the Qualifying Bases of the Existing Nonimmigrant Visa Statuses?
- Nonimmigrant and Immigrant Visa Issues When the Transaction Is Known Ahead of Time vs. After the Fact
- Compliance Due Diligence Issues
- What Is the New Standard to Determine If an Applicant for Admission Is Inadmissible as a “Public Charge?” To Whom Does It Apply, and Who Is Exempt?
- Are the Nonimmigrant Foreign Nationals in Compliance with Terms and Conditions of Visas and Petitions?
- H Dependency Concerns
