Cross Border

Our presence and expertise on both sides of the U.S./Canadian border make us a truly unique firm. For over 25 years, we have served as industry leaders with unparalleled experience in the ever-changing and unique procedures of U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the U.S. consulates operating in Canada. Due to the volume and diversity of our U.S. border practice, we are repeatedly recognized by fellow immigration practices and clients as the ultimate resource in matters concerning cross-border entries and applications.

Our strategic location of offices in the Northeast United States and Toronto (Canada’s major business center) has provided a valuable synthesis and increases our capacity to deal with critical cross-border immigration issues. We provide full services to Canadian nationals and Canadian residents interested in working, investing, traveling to, or residing in the U.S. as well as to third-country nationals that need to cross the U.S.-Canada border.

The value of our expertise grows exponentially as security measures and regulations continue to increases at U.S. ports of entry. This trend has been accompanied by growing trade and investment from Canada into the United States. Travelers are likely to encounter increased processing times or be asked to produce more information than in years past. We are here to help you make this ever-changing process as painless and productive as possible.

Whatever the purpose of your travel – business, U.S. work opportunities, family relocation to the U.S. or for personal travel – we can provide a direct and specific strategy that fits your needs. We are keenly aware of the growing number and particular dynamics of in-person applications and petitions at the border. We can help you by:
