Elizabeth Chatham, a partner at Osborn Maledon, heads the Firm's Immigration Law practice. With more than a decade of complex immigration experience advising Fortune 500 and 100 companies, fast-growth organizations, entrepreneurs, educational institutions, non-profits and individuals, Ms. Chatham understands that companies operate under different models and specializes in providing highly-tailored legal guidance to clients. This includes filing and advising clients on temporary (including H-1B, L-1, O, P, TN, E-1, E-2, and R visas) and permanent U.S. immigration options (EB-1 Outstanding Researcher, Extraordinary Ability, Multi-National Manager, National Interest waivers, and PERM Labor Certifications), consular processing, naturalization, and immigration compliance including I-9 audits and trainings for corporate HR personnel. Over the course of her career, Ms. Chatham has worked at national and global law firms, the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, and a non-profit legal organization.
In addition to her broad range of professional experience, Ms. Chatham also understands the immigration process from a personal perspective, as she was born in India and became a naturalized U.S. Citizen.
She enjoys spending time with her husband and two young sons, making good use of her passport, hiking and learning snowboarding.
