Helping People Move at the Speed of Business

Smith, Gambrell & Russell’s Global Immigration & Mobility Practice Group works with businesses to provide strategic guidance and solutions on domestic immigration and global migration needs for their workers, executives and critical employees. Having the best and brightest people on board - no matter where they're from - is critical to our clients' success.

With non-U.S. based companies more frequently establishing operations here, and more U.S. companies expanding globally, we've tailored our practice to offer expertise in all manner of inbound, outbound and transnational immigration – the movement of a company’s personnel and talent across the globe efficiently, legally and cost-effectively.

We are a small team led by dedicated attorneys and support staff, and we provide a high level of service, responsiveness and attention to detail for cases where time is always critical. Further, we all have personal experiences with U.S. immigration. Allow us to show you our commitment and serve your immigration law needs.
