Memphis, Tenn. – The law firm of Siskind Susser Bland, P.C. announces today the formation of Visalaw International, the first worldwide alliance of immigration lawyers.

“Competing in the global marketplace is difficult, and immigration laws are a trade barrier that can only add additional challenges,” said Greg Siskind, Siskind Susser Bland, P.C. partner. “Visalaw International's member lawyers are committed to helping clients develop strategies to ensure success.”

Visalaw International members are found in each of the world's regions and through the alliance, member firms can assist clients locating anywhere in the world.

Accomplishments include playing leadership roles in national and international bar associations; authoring best selling immigration law books in their countries; being regularly interviewed by journalists from national and international media organizations; pioneering the use of technology in the practice of immigration law; and drafting immigration legislation and regulations in their home countries.
