In 2019, employers are seeing unprecedented delays, denials, and a lack of consistency in their immigration filings. Motions and administrative appeals are time-consuming and frequently futile. Often, federal court litigation is the quickest and most effective way to obtain an adjudication or reverse a denial. However, most employers are uncertain of the process and chances of success, and they worry about the possible adverse impact to the company if they file a mandamus or challenge a denial in federal court. This seminar, designed specifically for in-house counsel and lawyers who advise companies, will provide practical, cutting-edge advice regarding the costs, logistics, risks, and benefits of incorporating federal litigation into your corporate immigration strategy.
