An experienced immigration attorney with wide-ranging in-house experience at a prominent data analytic technology company, Agnes has deep first-hand experience with the application of immigration laws in the workplace, which she uses in counseling her clients. Her real-world understanding of the immigration and compliance requirements faced by employers stems from advising on all facets of the immigration lifecycle in a business context, including managing a large foreign national population, providing H-1B cap strategic guidance that aligns with business needs, training and counseling Human Resources and recruiters on hiring and sponsorship evaluations, and speaking on immigration obligations in times of reduction in force.
Complementing her immigration portfolio, Agnes also counsels on employment-related issues, such as recruitment and hiring, compensation and benefits, accommodation requests, leaves of absence, investigations, performance reviews, disciplinary warnings, and terminations. Agnes assists with the drafting of employment, separation, non-competition, confidentiality, and consulting agreements, and she advises corporations on reorganizations, mergers, acquisitions, and layoffs.
