Abilene Christian University trusts FordMurray as immigration counsel, primarily for H-1B, TN and E-3 visas for faculty and researchers. Additionally, FordMurray has assisted ACU in developing and writing policies and procedures in the past including working with the International Students Office on developing better compliance procedures and processes for SEVIS compliance.
Slade Sullivan, Vice President and General Counsel of ACU, said he depends on FordMurray’s specialized knowledge of immigration in higher education. “As general counsel, I need to rely on subject matter experts for complex legal matters like employment-based immigration. It’s nice to know we are in good hands and to not have to worry about whether we’re getting good advice,” he said.
