Migration Law


The Competence Centre for Migration Law at LGP is the first point of contact for asylum, visa, residence permit and employment permit applications as well as for measures to terminate residence. Our team also offers competent support in matters relating to Austrian citizenship.

The support of our clients does not stop with legal advice. We see it as our obligation to help people gain a foothold in Austria. In addition to assisting private individuals, we provide legal representation for service companies when it comes to obtaining residence and employment permits for their non-Austrian employees.

Several languages are spoken in the LGP foreign nationals’ law team, which makes the need for interpreters obsolete, and clients can communicate directly and personally with their advisors, who originate from more than 45 countries. The support does not end with a positive conclusion to the proceedings. Even after the conclusion of a case, the Competence Centre for Migration Law informs clients about relevant innovations that can impact their legal status existentially. Always on the forefront at LGP: the human aspect!
