As business opportunities extend across the globe, managing a multinational workforce creates unique challenges for legal and HR professionals planning for corporate expansion. Our international panel of business immigration lawyers will take you on a virtual, world-wide tour to help you navigate the placement of talent wherever you do business. Advising a hypothetical company through its expansion plans, our panel will give you a bird’s eye view from Asia to Africa, from Europe to North America, and places in between, so borders do not become barriers for entry. If your business operates internationally, or plans to do so, please attend this webinar to learn more about the dynamics of deploying global talent, including key topics such as:

  • What can and cannot be done on a visitor’s visa
  • The options and processes for obtaining working visas
  • The legal pitfalls for failing to comply with local laws and regulations
  • Suggested best practices for business immigration
