About SW Law Group, P.C

Established in March 1994, SW Law Group, P.C. is headquartered in Midtown Manhattan in the heart of New York City, with additional offices in Silicon Valley, Tokyo, and Thailand.

Over the last 23 years, with well over 15,000 clients served, we have primarily assisted corporations and individuals with business immigration benefits and corporate compliance.

We handle consular processing issues and provide assistance with consular processing matters specifically through our Tokyo office.

We specialize in providing a wide array of non-immigrant work and training visas, and we also provide family-based immigration services and assist with citizenship and nationality issues.

Additionally, in the current era of investigations and compliance issues, we offer I-9 training, employer compliance handbooks, and representation of clients during investigations by the Department of Labor (DOL), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

We handle a broad range of immigration visa matters, including: nonimmigrant visas such as H-1B (specialty occupation workers), O-1 (aliens of extraordinary abilities), TN (NAFTA professionals), J-1 (exchange visitors), B-1/B-2 (business visitors/tourists), L-1 (intracompany transferees), E (treaty country traders/investors); permanent immigrant visas through labor certification (PERM), multinational executives/ managers, foreign nationals with extraordinary abilities, outstanding researchers, and national interest waivers; and adjustment of status applications and consular processing.

We focus on the expert execution of difficult matters and are proud to be able to assist foreign nationals and their employers in navigating the intricacies of our complicated U.S. immigration laws.

In addition to handling U.S. immigration issues, through our global reach, we handle directly, and through co-counsel relationships, global immigration issues for various countries including the U.K., Japan, France, Thailand, and India. In particular, we pride ourselves in our Japanese practice.

Based on our presence in Tokyo, Japan, we believe that we are the largest firm in the U.S. servicing Japanese companies, investors, and individuals. Through our office in Tokyo, which is located ten minutes from the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo, we are privy to the most up-to-date information on consular processing issues in that area. Specifically, we work closely with Japanese corporate clients on U.S. immigration related legal matters.

We have assisted numerous multinational Japanese companies in opening representative offices and incorporating subsidiaries in the U.S. Of particular note, founding partner David Sindell is one of a few foreign lawyers specializing in U.S. immigration in Tokyo admitted to the Tokyo Bar Association.

As such, we are particularly able to advise on visa application processes for our Japan based clients.

Our legal team consists of professionals who have extensive experience providing immigration services to large corporations, start-ups, and individuals. Members of our staff speak English, Japanese, French, Thai, Korean, Mandarin, and Cantonese fluently.

Together, and as we expand our firm with offices both in the U.S. and abroad, we have assisted foreign national clients from over 25 different countries. Specifically, the partners at SW Law Group bring over 50 years of combined experience to our firm:
