Who's Who Legal Corporate Immigration

Kristi is a partner in the firm’s Dallas office. Kristi focuses her practice on corporate immigration, worksite immigration compliance, and the development and implementation of global mobility immigration programmes. She advises Fortune 500 clients on a wide variety of complex immigrant and nonimmigrant matters, including defending employer sanctions cases, helping develop strategies for addressing workforce reductions, and assisting with due diligence and other immigration issues during mergers and acquisitions. She also advises clients on the maintenance of public access files and I-9 programme improvement and compliance. Her practice focuses on a diverse client industry, including telecommunications, engineering, architecture, healthcare, technology, oil and gas, and financial services.

Kristi assisted a large corporation with a nationwide internal I-9 audit, developed I-9 best practices, conducted training for their management staff, advised on enrollment in E-Verify, and assisted with the development of an electronic I-9 programme. Additionally, she assisted an engineering corporation with the development of a centralised internal immigration programme for their nonimmigrant and immigrant needs, and developed immigration procedures and policies to support this endeavour.
