Greenberg Traurig Honored as National Law Review ‘Go-To Thought Leader’ on Business Immigration

NEW YORK – Jan. 3, 2019 – Based on an analysis of more than 100,000 pieces of thought leadership, legal publisher The National Law Review (NLR) recognized global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP as a 2018 “Go-To Thought Leader” for its coverage of business immigration changes and immigration law in general.
