Lisa Galvan

Lead Immigration Attorney

For well over two decades, Lisa Galvan has been representing companies and high-net worth individuals who have been investing in U.S. enterprises. She understands the unique challenges that foreign businesses, investors and entrepreneurs face when setting up a U.S. subsidiary, affiliate, or joint venture. Her portfolio of clients includes U.S. start-up companies, foreign companies that acquire U.S. businesses, and foreign entrepreneurs that form, purchase or invest in an existing or expanded business.

Lisa Galvan

Lisa knows the pressure such investors, entrepreneurs and employees endure when balancing the risk associated with the work visa or permanent residence application process with their business needs and often challenging timelines.  Having over 20 years of experience on such cases has endowed her with a vision that allows her to guide her clients in a fashion where they can make the wisest decisions that allow them to navigate the immigration process with her guidance, and also account for the personal aspects of the immigration process like timing the application in a manner that the investor’s children can attend school or the spouse can obtain work authorization.

While Lisa has handled all visitor visa, employment-based work visas and employment-based permanent (green card) category cases that investors and entrepreneurs, and their key staff need, her particular core experience focuses on  B-1, E-2, E-1, L-1A, and L-1B work visa cases, and I-140 Multinational Manager/Executive Immigrant Petitions, PERM-based I-140 Immigrant Petitions, and I-485 and consular processing permanent residence cases.  She also possesses a very extensive background in counseling clients on immigration compliance such as I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification, E-Verify, I-9 audits, and U.S. Department of Homeland Security investigation counseling.  This helps our corporate and investor clientele to complete the process in a fashion that anticipates the ever-present reality that an audit including an onsite investigation may occur and can reduce liability – and worry. Lisa’s representation of companies and individual clients in the investor and entrepreneur area runs the full gamut: she represents major name recognizable public traded companies as a lead attorney on E-2, L-1 and H-1B work visas, but also represents large and mid-size privately held companies. However, a sizeable part of Lisa’s investor and entrepreneur immigration clientele includes solo investor and entrepreneurs where their case is “super personal” – it is about starting their dream enterprise in the U.S. – whether it is a small equipment distributorship, niche manufacturer, restaurant, gas station, export business, software or IT service business, or business in any other industry.
