Worldwide immigration

BAL’s government affairs team is managed by a partner who served as counsel to the US Senate’s immigration subcommittee and as chief counsel of US Citizenship and Immigration Services. The team’s senior counsel was the recent chief of the legal advisory opinion section in the US Department of State.

Global compliance

BAL helps corporations to comply with the laws of all countries and manage a dispersed workforce. BAL offers comprehensive I-9 and E-Verify services in the US to promote compliance with legal requirements for verifying the employment eligibility.

Consultative services

BAL assists clients in developing the right immigration programmes and the right policies that underpin them. Through dedicated consultants and cross-functional project management, BAL helps manage the shifts and complexities of global immigration due to changes in immigration law, M&As, restructuring or layoffs.

Advanced technology

BAL provides clients proprietary state-of-the-art technology to process, track and manage global programmes. An integrated system that presents all worldwide cases within one database – Cobalt – enables the best opportunities for configurable case control and management.
