Mayer Brown has been recognized as this year’s “Immigration Provider of the Year” at The Americas: Expatriate Management & Mobility Awards by the Forum for Expatriate Management (FEM). The award recognizes organizations or companies that have demonstrated best-in-class immigration support and compliance for their clients and their internal assignee population during the past year.

Mayer Brown’s Global Mobility & Migration team manages a wide range of global mobility issues confronting clients and provides oversight in various areas, including visa and work permit bureaucracies, complex tax regimes, and a host of other legal and compliance challenges. In announcing the award, FEM noted, “Mayer Brown LLP brings the total package to the field of Global Mobility.” It also highlighted the firm’s ability to advise companies and businesses of all sizes.
