BAL, the Richardson-based, award-winning, innovative corporate immigration law firm, announced that John Hamill, leader of its New York office, has been promoted to partner.
Hamill oversees corporate immigration programs for clients in the pharmaceutical, banking, finance and consumer goods industries, the firm said. He joined BAL in 2018 as an associate in the New York office.
“John is an effective leader who brings strategic solutions and enthusiasm to everything he does,” Jeremy Fudge, CEO at BAL, said in a statement. “His commitment to delivering exceptional service and positive outcomes to help foreign nationals and their families has earned him this well-deserved recognition. I am confident in his ability to lead and grow at BAL and elevate our client’s immigration programs to new heights.”
The ‘oneBAL culture’
Hamill has played an integral role in establishing the office and adopting the firm’s “oneBAL culture,” BAL’s holistic approach to one team, one brand, one P&L, one standard of excellence, and one unifying technology, BAL said. He was promoted to senior associate in 2019 and the firm said he possesses a deep understanding of complex immigration compliance matters and provides clients with strategic solutions, particularly during times of corporate restructuring.
“I’m humbled to continue leading and learning alongside my colleagues as we guide the immigration process for our clients, their employees and families,” Hamill said in a statement. “Our extraordinary teams, coupled with BAL’s industry-leading technology, are truly distinguished in our field and I’m excited to positively change lives.”
Hamill is an active member of BAL’s Pro Bono Committee and volunteers with Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), a non-governmental organization that offers legal and other protections to refugee and migrant children.
Last year, BAL said its attorneys dedicated more than 1,700 hours of pro bono legal support to various nonprofit organizations.
Established in 1980, BAL says it powers human achievement through immigration expertise, people-centered client services, and innovative technology.
BAL has 12 offices across the nation and global coverage in more than 185 countries.
