BAL is a very diverse place by any standard, but people who thrive here share a few characteristics: We are smart, intellectually agile, and quick to pick up new skills. We think strategically. We thrive in a fast-paced environment. And we love the work we do and are passionate about the level of service we deliver in performing our work.
BAL is also a very different kind of firm. It’s a demanding environment because the work we do is so critically important, but our culture is relaxed, helpful, and team-oriented. We take our work seriously, but we also place an emphasis on collegiality and fun. BAL is not a stuffy firm. We are a community and the people who work here feel that from day one. We ask a lot of people, but we give a lot in return: competitive salaries (including periodic bonuses) and great benefits as well as the opportunity to work on a critical business need for some of the world’s most prominent companies. We offer ample opportunities to build a career at BAL.

Our needs are diverse, but typically we hire in the following areas:
Attorneys, Immigration Managers: Our immigration attorneys and immigration managers work closely with our immigration professionals to handle clients’ casework. They gain a deeper understanding of immigration laws and processes, develop their managerial skills, and build lasting relationships with clients. We are particularly looking for those with direct experience in global immigration.

Paralegals, Immigration Advisors, Consular Services Advisors: We hire three types of professionals to assist with client work: paralegals, immigration advisors, and consular services advisors. These professionals are integral members of our collaborative teams. They assist with every phase of case preparation: gathering, analyzing, researching, organizing information, and preparing legal documents.
