Firm Details

Corporate Immigration Partners (“CIP”) is well-known as one of the largest U.S. firms practicing exclusively in employment-based/business immigration law.  The firm, which is majority-owned by women and ethnic minorities, has existed for more than 25 years with headquarters in San Francisco, California, and other offices around the world.

CIP serves clients of different sizes and industries, with the top 5 industries including IT Software & Services, Manufacturing, Healthcare, Professional Services and Consumer Goods. CIP offers services in all areas of corporate immigration law, including business and employment visas, permanent residency, compliance management, and strategic talent mobility planning.  

CIP’s global footprint allows the delivery of immigration services in 150+ countries.  The firm’s dedicated global immigration team operates from regional offices in the US, UK, and Singapore, as well as in Canada, France, Austria, Malaysia, and Australia.  In addition to its own employees, CIP utilizes local resources as needed to provide in-country support and advice under the local applicable law.    

CIP is particularly renowned for using the most sophisticated technology platform to maximize efficiency for its attorneys and paralegals, provide full transparency for the human resources professionals overseeing their company’s immigration program, and for the employees faced with navigating complex immigration processes. The firm’s technology ensures that all stakeholders have appropriate visibility into case activity and that all transactions are processed with the utmost security and privacy compliance.  Further, the technology’s automation of administrative tasks and tracking of all essential deadlines means that CIP attorneys and paralegals can focus their attention on what matters most – legal strategy and proactive monitoring and client communication.

CIP invests significant resources into the continuous advancement of technology innovations for our clients. We demand that our attorneys and paralegals devote considerable effort in working with our technology developers to stay ahead of the curve and provide creative, inventive solutions for best possible client experience. In 2021, these efforts resulted in the “Trailblazer” award for legal technology from the National Law Journal.
