Summary

Brendan focuses his practice on developing and managing global talent acquisition programs for large and small employers seeking to fill highly skilled positions in the United States. He counsels employers located throughout New York, the United States and internationally and assists with obtaining immigration status and employment authorization for employees in both nonimmigrant and immigrant (permanent resident/“green card”) visa categories. His practice includes an emphasis on assisting college/university faculty members and medical professionals with complex immigration issues such as J-1 waivers, O-1 visas, and permanent residency through the National Interest Waiver, Outstanding Professor/Researcher, and Alien of Extraordinary Ability categories. Brendan also works extensively with investors, entrepreneurs, and start-ups in securing investment-based nonimmigrant visas.

As part of his practice, Brendan also counsels individual clients in family-based and humanitarian immigration processes, including marriage-based visa petitions, adjustment of status, consular processing and asylum applications.
