Business leaders are having to step up their game like never before to deal with the COVID-19 crisis.  Business operations have been impacted in ways that were not possible to predict.  The future remains uncertain.

As some of the lockdowns ease and attempts are made to return to normal, several difficult questions need to be answered.  Among them are legal issues including immigration and workforce related questions.

This free webinar will present the picture from the vantage point of business executives, including CEOs, who are clients of the firm.  Mr. Syed, an immigration attorney with the firm will lead the conversation.

He has built and scaled teams both in the US and abroad and has a track record of delivering high quality products.
