Melany Savitt Gives PERM Deep Dive Presentation at Conference for Immigration Lawyers

Tonkon Torp business immigration attorney Melany Savitt was a featured speaker at the American Immigration Lawyer Association’s (AILA) annual national conference in Orlando, Florida on June 24, 2023.

Melany and her co-presenters guided an audience of immigration professionals through the new PERM Labor Certification application form. Their discussion also covered key considerations for the application process, including defining what is normal in a job’s requirements and using after-acquired experience with the employer. Among further topics, the workshop also covered how to manage immigration needs and follow up on PERM efforts in the wake of layoffs, corporate mergers, and acquisitions.

Melany represents clients of all sizes from a variety of industries, guiding employers and foreign nationals through the maze of immigration laws. She handles a wide range of nonimmigrant work visas and has extensive experience with PERM labor certifications, and immigrant visa petitions for multinational executives and managers.

Founded in 1946, AILA is a national association of immigration lawyers established to promote justice, advocate for fair and reasonable immigration law and policy, advance the quality of immigration and nationality law and practice, and enhance the professional development of its members. Their annual conference is billed as the immigration law event of the year.
