If you don’t see your industry, please contact us to learn more about how we can help you today.

Academic & Related Non-Profit

 In our progressively globalized world, the leading academic and related nonprofit professionals have vast, worldwide options when it comes to the institutions where they want to teach, research, or provide specialized skills.

These institutions and organizations—including private and public sector higher education institutions, teaching hospitals, research facilities and national laboratories—must compete for top talent to forward their educational goals, research projects and reputations for excellence.

Automotive

As both developed and developing countries examine ways to improve transportation and consider the impact of carbon emissions, the automotive industry sees increased opportunity for global expansion.

Energy & Resources

To remain competitive in the worldwide energy marketplace, companies must have the ability to seamlessly move their employees where they need them, when they need them—and do so in compliance with local immigration processes and requirements.

We work with many of the world’s leading energy companies and we understand the nature and scope of energy projects and the critical need to keep workforces mobile.

Financial Services

As business between borders increases, a vital global financial network is a key underpinning of the world’s economy.  As financial services organizations become increasingly multinational, their professionals need to build cross-border relationships and remain accessible to clients well beyond domestic borders.

Health Care

The World Health Organization cautions that by 2035, the world will be short 12.9 million health-care workers. Institutions and facilities are competing for talent within their own countries and across borders, creating imbalances of skilled workers in different regions.

Hospitality & Leisure

The business sector that houses leisure, hospitality, travel and tourism brings together one of the largest groups of employers in the world. These employers place a high priority on recruiting, training and retaining talented executives, managers, administrators and staff who understand how to meet the diverse needs of their multicultural clientele.

Manufacturing

The health and welfare of companies in the manufacturing industry are essential to an effective global economy. Widespread competition for skilled talent and a growing shortage of candidates in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math is affecting manufacturing companies around the world, making the need for a strategic and effective immigration program more important than ever.

Media & Communications

As leaders in their field, our media and communications clients rely on the steady movement of a multi-faceted, multi-skilled workforce.

Pharmaceuticals & Biotechnology

Edward Rodriguez works closely with many of world’s leading companies on pharmaceutical and biotechnology immigration needs and we have a full appreciation of the types of immigration issues faced by the industry.

Professional Services, Law & Consulting

Edward Rodríguez represents many of the world’s leading professional services firms, including accounting, consulting and law firms. We understand that the global scope of their client projects requires constant movement of employees to support programs around the world, and that the timely movement of key employees plays an important role in the success of their projects.

Sports & Entertainment

Serving as immigration counsel in the area of professional sports requires specific knowledge regarding the immigration benefits available for professional major and minor league athletes and essential support personnel including coaches, among others.

Technology

Advances in technology evolve at lightning speed, leading to continuous and exponential growth for technology companies. In an industry where creating and owning the “next big idea” could be fundamental to the success of your business, competition is fierce.

Every company wants to hire the next technology wunderkind, while professionals in the industry want to expand their skills and horizons by taking advantage of employment opportunities around the world.

To attract the best talent from around the world, companies need to know their immigration options for recruits and their existing workforce, and offer mobility packages to attract and retain innovators.

Transportation, Warehousing & Logistics

Though there have been many improvements in automation technology and multimodal services, our clients in the transportation, warehousing and logistics industries still manage extremely labor-intensive enterprises. In addition, companies within these closely interactive and related industries are extremely competitive.
