LOS ANGELES, CA (January 3, 2017) Jackson Lewis P.C., one of the country’s preeminent workplace law firms, is pleased to announce esteemed immigration attorney Brian Schield has joined the firm’s Los Angeles office as a Principal. 

“Given the complexities of the current political landscape, the intersection between immigration and employment is becoming increasingly important, and it is imperative that we continue to address clients’ needs quickly and effectively in both the compliance and immigration benefits areas,” said Michael Neifach and Amy Peck, Co-Leaders of Jackson Lewis’ Immigration Practice Group. “We are thrilled to add Brian’s 25+ years of experience in business-related immigration matters to our group, where he will be a valuable addition for our clients on the West Coast as well as contribute significantly to our national immigration footprint.”

“We are pleased to continue to attract high-profile laterals such as Brian, who follows our recent addition of Elizabeth Murphy in Los Angeles,” said Mia Farber, Los Angeles Office Managing Principal.  “Brian’s considerable knowledge and experience make him an excellent addition for our office, the firm and most importantly for our clients.”

Mr. Schield has more than 25 years of experience in business-related immigration matters. His clients include large international companies and organizations, with a particular focus on Europe and the Pacific Rim. 

Mr. Schield regularly advises clients on all types of business, professional and family-related immigration and visa matters including labor certification processing through the Department of Labor, non-immigrant and immigrant petitions filed with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and visa applications filed with US consulates abroad.

He also represents US businesses in connection with I-9 audits and in defending fines proceedings and prosecutions under the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. He has lectured extensively on US immigration policies and procedures over the course of his career.
