Lauren Sigg practices primarily in the area of U.S. immigration law, focusing on business immigration.
Ms. Sigg's practice involves helping multinational companies, health care organizations, and schools in staffing their U.S. offices by successfully obtaining appropriate immigration status for their employees. She enables hospitals; academic institutions; and manufacturing, chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology companies, including some Fortune 100 companies, to retain valuable key business people, scientists, researchers, and other professionals by obtaining both temporary and permanent immigration status. While her practice encompasses all business-related nonimmigrant and immigrant petitions, Ms. Sigg focuses on multinational intracompany transfers, petitions for outstanding researchers and individuals with extraordinary ability, and naturalization matters.
Ms. Sigg also works with various health care organizations with respect to obtaining waivers of foreign residency requirements for physicians, enabling our clients to attract and retain valuable professionals. She counsels employers on the Immigration Reform and Control Act and related issues, including employment verification, I-9 matters, and E-Verify, as well as provides guidance on compliance with export control regulations.
Ms. Sigg also provides advice and guidance regarding import/export control issues, including compliance and enforcement issues.
Prior to joining the firm, Ms. Sigg interned with United States District Court Judge Alfred V. Covello at the U.S. District Court in Hartford, Connecticut.
