seeking an immigration lawyer for non-EU work permit application (Baselstadt/Land)

Hi Everyone!

I'm new to this forum and it seems to contain a plethora of information so bummer I didn't discover it sooner!

If people aren't wanting to read further, my most pressing question is does anyone know a good, can-think-outside-the-box immigration lawyer who has experience with non-EU work permits??? Since these permits are cantonal, someone in Baselland/Stadt would be preferable, altough things obviously don't change 180 from canton to canton.

Anyway, not wanting to duplicate my question or situation, I've done a search of previous posts but only found one from a couple years ago that seemed similar.

My situation is this: I'm a non-EU citizen and currently doing an internship in Baselland on an L visa which expires end of may. Both my employer and myself want to stay on board. The problem is when I got the internship it wasn't as a result of my applying to some advertised position, they basically just created something for me, and now they clearly have an invested interest for me to continue. I need a good lawyer to see if there is a loophole to circumventing this whole EURES job-posting proccess given other points of argumentation I could provide.

Thank you so much in advance for any information you can provide!!

Try here:

They even have a "hotline" for questions.

Regards,

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the reply....I'd actually heard about them a few weeks ago and did contact them. Because I managed to get through without the hotline (at 4.50CHF/min) the lady was pretty snotty on the phone. But they do have a first-time 3-hour consultation package at 450CHF that you can sign up for. I'm just hesitant to drop that without getting a good vibe from the lawyer first (continuing that approach from lawyer to lawyer you'll be out a couple K without even getting past square). I mean I know lawyers are all about money and they don't care about you but i got put off that she went straight to talking about her fee system and I even had to argue with her about the 3-h rate for 450chf she said they don't offer, which is posted straight on their website.

vs. another lawyer i talked to on the phone provided me 10min of his time, for him to listen to me without money even coming in question. Although I don't know how experienced this lawyer is so that's why i'm still looking....

I am however still going to keep sgierpartner on the backburner.

Thanks again!
Beate

well if there's no loophole for that, then at least there's got to be strategic ways for writing a job advert so you're not sifting through 1000 crap euro resumes and having to justify to the authorities why each one is no good so they can hire moi....
