For IP + M&A Lawyers

IP Attorneys:  Do you have a foreign national client whose invention could qualify him or her  for immigration as a Person of ExtraOrdinary or Excpetional Ability?  Or for a nonimmigrant (temporary visa – often preceding the green card)?   Feel free to contact me at mcmakar@aol.com for a list of the requirements.

M&A Attorneys:  Your client’s target company in a merger or acquisition may have key employees who are foreign nationals.  The ability to retain them should be considered in due diligence.  Also the liablity risk in a target’s I-9 compliance should be factored into purchase price.  I can provide an assessment of work-authorization status and potential I-9 fines.   mcmakar@aol.com
