Franczek Radelet Broadens the Breadth of its Practice with New Immigration CounselFebruary 9, 2015
Franczek Radelet is
pleased to welcome Tejas Shah to the Firm as immigration counsel. Tejas, who
will lead the Firm’s immigration practice, provides employers with
comprehensive advice and counsel with respect to virtually all immigration
issues affecting employers. Tejas assists employers in hiring and retaining
talented foreign-national employees, sponsoring employees for permanent
residency or temporary visas (H-1B, O-1, E-2, R-1, E-3, L-1), assisting with
I-9 audits, and offering guidance to ensure compliance with the complex and
evolving immigration rules, executive actions, and legislation.
“Tejas’ experience and practice are a perfect complement to our extensive labor, employment, employee benefits, and education practices,” commented David P. Radelet, co-chair of the Firm’s Labor & Employment Practice. “With the arrival of Tejas, we can offer employers an even more robust and comprehensive scope of services, advice and counsel on the wide range of issues they are facing each and every day,” add James C. Franczek, Jr., president of the Firm.
Tejas’ experience has led to several leadership appointments, including current co-chair of the South Asian Bar Association of North America’s immigration committee, 2014 president of the Indian American Bar Association of Chicago, and, starting in mid-2015, chair of the Illinois State Bar Association’s International and Immigration Law Section Council. Tejas earned his J.D. from George Washington National Law School in 2006 and his B.S. in economics from Duke University in 2002.
"Franczek Radelet’s practice and its highly regarded reputation provides me with a comprehensive platform to offer clients,” commented Tejas. “This opportunity to join the Firm makes complete sense for my clients and for the continued development of my practice—I could not pass it up.”
