The global immigration law firm, Pearl Law Group, announced today that its new High Growth Practice Team will be led by the former partners of Lipson & Pretorius, a boutique immigration firm with offices in San Francisco and San Jose. "Adding attorneys Hendrik Pretorius and Ting Ni strengthens our team and particularly deepens our relationships in the startup community," says Pearl Partner, Sameer Khedekar. "We've been regularly asked to expand our services for entrepreneurs, incubators, and high-growth businesses attracting top foreign talent in the Bay Area and beyond. Hendrik and Ting are ideal for this, given their immense talent and proven results."
The High Growth Practice will focus on helping foreign national entrepreneurs and start-up employers to obtain visas and run their operations in the U.S., navigating an immigration system designed for more traditional, established businesses and making it work for enterprise founders. The team will advise on E-2 and L-1 visas for new business operations, H-1B visa strategies for startups, and EB-5 visa opportunities for investors, as well as on the nuances of pursuing US permanent residence.
Like Pearl Law Group, Lipson & Pretorius was founded over 20 years ago by a prominent female immigration attorney, Ann Lipson. Both firms are proud of the quality of their lawyers and their work product, the integrity of their advice and counseling, and an unparalleled level of service. Importantly, and like so many of Pearl's professionals, Mr. Pretorius and Ms. Ni are both immigrants themselves, bringing personal insights and empathy to the individuals that benefit from their service.
