Why is immigration law important for a start-up company?

Black’s Law Dictionary defines immigration as “the coming into a country of foreigners for purposes of permanent residence”. Immigration law is a the set of federal laws that govern immigration. How immigration law affects you depends on your role at the start-up company. 

If you are the owner of the start-up company and you are a U.S. citizen, then you might need to know what visas are required for possible employees.  If you are the owner or partner of the start-up company and you are NOT a US citizen, you will need to know your visa options to work at your Start-Up Company.  If you are an employee, you need to know what visa options are available so that the start-up company can sponsor you.

One must always have a valid visa to work in the United States. So, whatever your status is in the U.S. and whatever your role is at the start-up company, immigration law should be one of the top considerations.
