Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) June 12, 2005
Andrea Elliott qualified as an advocate in South Africa and was the youngest woman admitted to the Supreme Court. She has been practicing law since 1986, and spent the last five years in the U.S. developing global resources and operations for two large U.S. immigration law firms.
Speaking seven languages, Andrea has a wealth of substantive knowledge as well as a network of counsel known as ÂkeiretsuÂ who work with her as a team globally.
ÂI first heard of the term keiretsu when researching Asian business practices many years agoÂ says Elliott, ÂIt is a Japanese term referring to a grouping or family of affiliated companies that form a tight-knit alliance to work toward each other's mutual success.Â
ÂWith the growth of the Internet and the ability to leverage technology to deliver ÂvirtualÂ global presence, itÂs important that we collectively empower each other using these Âkeiretsu-basedÂ systemsÂ says Elliott. ÂThe need for Âbricks and mortarÂ operations is a thing of the past, as technology allows us to reach a whole new area of human capital that was previously unavailableÂ.
ÂPro-Link GLOBAL is intended to change the way U.S. Immigration lawyers practice law by providing them a more efficient and cost-effective way to access global immigration services, particularly in-house corporate counsel and smaller law firms that lack the resources and varied experience of a large law firm," says Catherine Mayou, Senior U.S. Counsel.
The firm offers one centralized stop on the Internet with access to a vast and carefully vetted Âtried and testedÂ network of global practitioners.
Pro-Link GLOBAL offer a free subscription to their bi-weekly e-bulletin called "Global BRIEF" which is filled with the latest breaking news in global immigration law.
Offering all aspects of global migration services from petitioning the foreign governments for work authorization, residence permits, obtaining legalizations for documents to providing on-site training for HR personnel in their global compliance requirements, Pro-Link GLOBAL ensures that the needs of the global immigration consumer can be taken care of with one phone call.
