Our client, a large mid-market full-service firm, is seeking an Associate in its Immigration team in Minneapolis. This firm gives BigLaw quality work without the BigLaw hours targets. Strong candidates will have at least three years of experience from a strong immigration team at another law firm.
This is a huge team spread across the US, Asia and the UK, which advises well-known companies and organizations with the full range of business and work-related U.S. work visa petitions, I-9 employer compliance, international visas and work permits, and international employee transfers. This team has fantastic resource support, with a large team of immigration Paralegals and administrative/operations professionals.
Successful candidates will have experience as a business immigration Attorney, and a strong commitment to client service and teamwork. Additionally, demonstrated expertise with permanent residence cases, including PERM, is required, as well as the full range of NIV and IV petitions.
This law firm is particularly known for its excellent training and support from Partners, and you are issued with a Partner mentor to help you transition up into Partnership, if that’s your preferred career path. Associates describe the place as having a ‘midwestern, friendly feel’ and the firm actively encourages a healthy work/life balance.
Big work doesn’t necessarily mean big hours. Up to 100 hours of pro bono and 50 hours of DE&I activity can be credited toward the firm’s 1,900 billable hours. We found that Associates work about ten hours a day on average, which some felt would allow them to avoid weekend work.
We will require a cover letter and a deal sheet, as well as your resume and transcripts for this position.
Candidates must be qualified in Minnesota.
