Biography

Jennifer Wadhwa leads 3i Law’s immigration practice, which focuses on representing individuals, serial entrepreneurs, start-ups, small businesses, and early-stage growth companies in securing U.S. visas, green cards, and citizenship applications for employees and family members.

In addition to her direct representation in immigration matters, Jennifer practices in employment and labor law. She provides I-9 audits and employment law training to ensure that business clients understand the legal, regulatory, and compliance requirements for employing workers in the United States. She has also represented plaintiffs in employment discrimination cases.

Jennifer is also a seasoned HR professional with more than 10 years of experience working with pre-IPO start-ups and Fortune Global 500 companies in computer software and information technology services.
