Saratoga Springs, NY – Lemery Greisler LLC, a leading Capital Region business law firm, has announced the promotion of Lynn E. Schwartz to Principal.

Lynn E. Schwartz concentrates her practice in the area of U.S. immigration law, representing corporate clients seeking to acquire temporary work permits or permanent resident status for foreign nationals, as well as individuals seeking family-based permanent resident status.  She has secured temporary work visas for foreign citizens of extraordinary ability (including those in the fashion and entertainment industry, physicians and others), as well as investors, multinational managers/executives, workers with specialized knowledge, and those in specialty occupations. Ms. Schwartz also handles applications for naturalization and family-based immigration petitions, including same-sex marriage green cards.

"The firm is pleased to recognize Lynn in this way and looks forward to continuing to serve the immigration law needs of the business community, both locally and globally, as well as their family members, and other individuals in need of legal counsel, and providing ongoing advice to businesses," says James Carminucci, a Managing Partner of the Firm.

Prior to relocating to Upstate New York, Ms. Schwartz lived and practiced law in Manhattan, first in the commercial litigation department of Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, and thereafter in the Corporate Legal Department of a Fortune 500 company.  She is admitted to practice in the State of New York and the State of New Jersey, and she is a member of the New York State Bar Association.
