Foster LLP, a global immigration law firm providing responsive, customized service on behalf of large employers worldwide, top emerging and midmarket companies, investors, individuals and families, was recently featured by the prominent rating service, Who’s Who Legal. The ratings were based on interviews with canvassed clients, in-house legal counsel, human resource professionals, and experienced immigration lawyers. Reporting on the 2017 Corporate Immigration legal field, the service listed more Foster attorneys than attorneys from any other immigration law firm in Texas and the second most in the United States.
The full list of recognized elite Corporate Immigration attorneys included Partners Charles C. Foster, Judy J. Lee, Robert F. Loughran, John W. Meyer, Jose R. Perez, Nestor A. Rosin, Delisa J.F. Bressler, Ryan C. Chargois, Helene N. Dang, and Avalyn Castillo Langemeier, as well as Senior Attorney Todd Fowler.
Two Foster attorneys were specifically highlighted by Who’s Who Legal, Chairman Charles Foster and Managing Partner Robert F. Loughran.
Charles Foster continues to be “highly rated by sources for his boundless expertise and superb experience in the gamut of corporate immigration matters.” In a recent similar publication, Chambers Global referred to him as a “Senior Statesman” and an “icon” of the immigration Bar, going on to state that Charles Foster’s “extensive knowledge of immigration law has seen him assist with government immigration policy issues.” This may be attributed to his senior advisory role to the U.S. Congress and Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama and his position as the Honorary Consul General of the Kingdom of Thailand in Houston.
Robert Loughran was independently regarded by his peers as an “excellent and well-rounded practitioner who is at the top of his profession.” For 25 years, Robert Loughran has represented multinational companies and advised investors and Ultra High Net Worth individuals on U.S. and global immigration law. He founded Foster’s Global Immigration Section in 1993, founded the firm’s Workforce Compliance Practice Group in 1995, and opened the firm’s Austin Office in 2000. Foster now boasts one of the leading Global Immigration practices in the world, as well as a multi-faceted and complex I-9 compliance practice, in addition to industry leading U.S. immigration expertise.
