Rosemary represents foreign nationals and Fortune 500 clients in employment-related immigration issues, including visas, PERM applications, relocation, and compliance issues. She represents clients to secure temporary and permanent work authorizations for foreign national workers in various industries, including financial services, biotechnology and other scientific fields, universities, construction and government contracting. She has counseled clients on relocating athletes and other uniquely skilled workers to the U.S.

Rosemary also advises her clients on workforce compliance issues, including I-9 compliance, and is experienced at counseling companies through government audits. Her knowledge of employment law is an added asset in drafting and reviewing corporate immigration policies.

She wrote a chapter for Matthew Bender & Company and the LexisNexis Group on the impact of 9/11 on U.S. immigration law and how the U.S. CIS has been encompassed by the Department of Homeland Security.
