Home Business Immigration


The Firm’s Immigration Group serves as immigration counsel to many of the multinational companies doing business in the United States, particularly those with Chinese background, being either large state-owned Chinese enterprises, or small-to-medium private companies headquartered in China.

The Firm features lawyers with impressive credentials, dedicated exclusively to the practice of business immigration law. We counsel corporate clients from China and their foreign national employees in all phases of the hiring and transfer of foreign national executives, managers, professionals, investors, and performing artists to the United States. The Firm has extensive experience in advising multinational corporations on how to minimize exposure and liability regarding a variety of employment-related issues. The Firm offers on-site training for corporate human resource professionals to acquaint them with important immigration issues and to update them on recent legislative and agency developments that could affect their employees.

We also represent individuals, who, because of their extraordinary ability in their fields or because of their substantial investments in the United States, do not require corporate sponsorship to immigrate.

Ms. Lockhart worked on my National Interest Waiver case and then my Adjustment of Status case. She kept me up to date on my cases and was very responsive, often responding to me within 24 hours. She has a wealth of experience and it showed clearly. Overall, working with her was wonderful!

2020 for me is legendary because I met dear Ms. Dorothea Lockhart and the immigration team at DGW Kramer LLP. I never imagined I can get any long term stable visa in U.S. until I came to this law firm...What I want to say is if you are struggling with your legal long term identity in the USA, please entrust your future to lawyer Dorothea Lockhart. She is the best one to support you to realize your American dream.
