[Excerpt] On behalf of Baker & McKenzie’s Global Immigration and Mobility practice group, I am thrilled to share with you the newest edition of The Global Employer: Focus on Global Immigration and Mobility. This handbook is a product of the efforts of numerous lawyers throughout Baker & McKenzie and selected local professionals at other firms. With more than 150 immigration professionals in over 40 countries, Baker & McKenzie’s Global Immigration & Mobility practice group is uniquely positioned to provide a full suite of legal services to clients. This handbook, which provides an overview of the business and legal considerations associated with global mobility assignments, is one of the many valuable resources made available to multinational companies which move employees around the world. The product of over 60 years of experience, the information found on the following pages is tailored to the feedback we have received from our clients who move employees globally. We are thankful for this input and invite you to let us know what we can do to make this tool more useful to you and your colleagues.
