Mr. Groban counsels multinational corporations, as well as small and medium-sized businesses, on all aspects of U.S. immigration matters across a broad spectrum of industries, including technology, engineering, finance, e-commerce, logistics, advertising, consulting and healthcare. He assists employers with developing global migration programs, including the policies, procedures and protocols so essential for their success. For organizations interested in tapping global talent more efficiently and cost-effectively, he helps them to assess their most favorable U.S. immigration options and then to secure the employment-based nonimmigrant and immigrant visas the employees need to work and remain in this country. In this regard, Mr. Groban has counseled employers to enhance the attractiveness of their growing global mobility programs by developing novel large-scale PERM labor certification programs, which act as important recruiting incentives by offering new employees a faster track to permanent residence and simultaneously help employers obtain substantial reductions in case cycle times, and significantly reduced costs. Finally, Mr. Groban advises employers on the significant compliance issues that are inherent in the U.S. immigration process, including Form I-9 completion and worksite enforcement.

Mr. Groban received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Syracuse University and earned his Juris Doctorate degree from Villanova University’s Charles Widger School of Law, where he served as a managing editor of the Villanova Environmental Law Journal.
