Curtis Builds Immigration Practice with Addition of Colin Munro as Counsel

New York, March 17, 2016 - Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP is expanding its immigration capabilities with the move of Colin Munro to the international law firm as counsel.

Mr. Munro focuses on U.S. immigration law, counseling corporate, nonprofit and individual clients step-by-step throughout the often complex process of immigration for high level personnel assuming key technical and managerial positions outside their native countries.

“We are excited to formalize our Immigration practice with the addition of Colin Munro to Curtis,” said Curtis managing partner Matias A. Vega. “Immigration-related matters have become increasingly important as companies widen their search for high-level talent. Mr. Munro’s many years of experience managing complex immigration and related tax issues will provide our firm with a significant asset.”

Mr. Munro was formerly a partner at McCarter & English where he handled immigration matters for both public and closely-held U.S. and foreign-based multinational corporate clients.

Through his own immigration practice, The Munro Law Group, LLC, Mr. Munro advised clients in a wide variety of industries, including manufacturing, financial services, information technology, transportation, energy and the performing arts, as well as U.S. and multinational non-profits. He served as Counsel to GE International, Inc. and International Tax Counsel for Bristol Myers Squibb (then Bristol Myers).

He was responsible at GE for executive compensation, expatriate and corporate tax, as well as regulatory business issues arising from the company’s extensive foreign network of branch offices and affiliates. At Bristol Myers, he was given responsibility for the pharmaceutical company’s extensive affiliates’ network and its foreign tax exposures worldwide.

“Curtis’ strong international platform provides an ideal opportunity to serve a diverse client base,” said Mr. Munro. “It will enable me to maximize my experience helping major companies import foreign nationals into technical, professional and managerial positions in the U.S.”

Mr. Munro earned his LL.M. from New York University School of Law, his J.D. from the University of Detroit and his B.A. from DePauw University. He is admitted to practice in New York, Connecticut, and Michigan along with U.S. Tax Court and U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Michigan. He is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
