The Immigration practice group of Murtha Cullina provides comprehensive immigration services, handling a full range of immigration matters.

Our lawyers represent corporate clients, small businesses and individual clients nationwide and internationally. We advise clients as to their best options and assist them in preparing all petitions and applications for temporary visas or for permanent residence, including accompanying them to their scheduled immigration interview.

Our clients are universities, academic medical centers, hospitals, multinational corporations, small businesses, and research institutions, as well as individuals filing as investors, entrepreneurs, professionals, managers, extraordinary aliens, outstanding researchers or professors, and health care professionals.

Our experience includes counseling foreign investors and entrepreneurs on setting up businesses in the U.S. or investing in existing U.S. ventures and obtaining a visa or green card based on such investment or entrepreneurship pursuant to the E-2, L-1 “new office”, H-1B “entrepreneur” and EB-5 visa options.
