WASHINGTON, Aug. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- HAYMAN-WOODWARD PLLC, the leading Immigration and Business Advisory law firm based in Washington D.C., recently held a series of informative lectures and personalized sessions on immigration and foreign investment for prospective clients in Brazil.

Leonardo Freitas clarified the benefits of legal immigration to the US to prospective clients in Brazil.

The events were held in two cities, Brasília (Aug 21) and Goiânia (Aug 22), where the firm provided its expertise on different visa programs that provide a pathway to legally emigrate to the US, including the EB-1A and EB-2 (National Interest Waiver) visas.  Those are visa categories which result in Green Cards and permanent residency in the US, and are becoming better known and more financially accessible by qualified people who wish to start a new life in the US.

Throughout its history, HAYMAN-WOODWARD has been playing a key role in clarifying the existence and benefits of the EB-1A and EB-2 NIW visas categories, which have both grown in popularity, especially among individuals with unique skills in their areas of expertise or training, and whose presence in the US will contribute to a job market where many key professionals are lacking, despite the excess of vacancies available in the areas of Healthcare, Science, Engineering, Technology, Law, Education, etc.

"The US offers diverse opportunities to professionals with a solid education, proven experience and differentiated skills in their professional fields. However, many people believe that even with an excellent professional and academic background, they do not qualify for expatriation. Most people are simply unaware of the 187 different types of American visas, many of which allow for the acquisition of a Green Card, and consequently emigrate to the US," said Leonardo Freitas, Managing Business Partner of HAYMAN-WOODWARD.

"During the events, we also had the opportunity to speak about the importance of foreign investment. Especially in this particular moment of political and economic uncertainty in Brazil, reallocate businesses to countries with an ever-expanding economy like the United States may be crucial to a successful business planning," added Freitas.    

Through a series of personalized one-on-one sessions in Brazil for prospective individuals and businesses looking to expatriate to the States, the firm continues to solidify its presence abroad and strengthen its position as one of the most prestigious international law firms in the United States, as it supports companies and individuals in their challenges to build value across borders.
