Sterling Lexicon and Graham Adair join forces

Mar 17 | 2022

Sterling Lexicon announced on 11 March, 2022 that it has entered into a collaborative partnership with US-based immigration law firm, Graham Adair.

The move formalises an existing relationship to help clients save time and money while making them more efficient when hiring new or moving current global talent to live and work in the United States. At the same time, it allows for a more seamless and consistent experience for transferring personnel – many of whom can move with the same employer multiple times over the course of their careers.

Known as Sterling Immigration – a collaboration with Graham Adair, the partnership further enhances the combined strengths and expertise of both organisations to help employers find the best and most efficient way to fill short- and long-term workforce opportunities, build leadership pipelines or offer career development and training within the US for their global talent.

“The Graham Adair team shares our commitment to researching and recommending the best solutions for clients, employees and families, based on their unique priorities and circumstances,” said Leanne Cottrell, Head of Immigration at Sterling Lexicon. “Even as pandemic conditions created challenges, we could consistently rely on their team to work with ours, ensuring employees settled into their roles quickly, compliantly and with the highest levels of care. Now, we’re delighted to build on the success of that relationship to help companies rethink their global strategies and be ready for what’s next.”

With nearly 7 in 10 companies reporting difficulty hiring in ManpowerGroup’s Employment Outlook Survey Q3 2021, multinationals across all industry sectors are finding increasingly creative ways to foster, attract and retain top talent. The ability to recruit and relocate global talent quickly and efficiently is a competitive advantage. By integrating corporate mobility policy consulting and design expertise, a track record of success navigating the complexities of US immigration entry and visa processing and the power of an extensive network of global supply chain partners to complete the move, the collaboration between Sterling Lexicon and Graham Adair helps companies realise that advantage.

“Through our teamwork with Sterling Lexicon, clients now have all the benefits of integrated and top-tier global mobility solutions with the advantages and conveniences of a single operational and service delivery model,” said Sam Adair, founding Partner at Graham Adair. “That directly translates into time and cost efficiencies for the company, but just as importantly, it creates positive experiences for their mobile personnel as they interact with the company at critical points in their career journeys.”
