“I love working at Mdivani, where we analyze and drive cases as a team. I find our practice area always interesting – not only do we need to learn the industry we are serving, but it’s important for a successful business immigration attorney to understand a client's business goals, high level strategy, current immigration policy/practices, and apply that to the employer's business need regarding international personnel and compliance."
