Karl Waheed's Story
Karl Waheed, member of the New York (1987) and Paris (1993) bars, founded Karl Waheed Avocats, a fifteen person law firm dedicated exclusively to corporate immigration. Karl Waheed Avocats was retained in 2006 by the French Ministry of Labour to present a white paper on corporate immigration in France. This report presented a series of recommendations which were incorporated in the currently applicable French regulations on business immigration.

He obtained his Juris Doctorate at Stetson Law School, Gulfport, Florida (1985) and DiplÃ´me des Etudes Approfondies in European Law at the Sorbonne (1986). He has been practicing corporate immigration law in Paris since then.
He is a frequent speaker on subjects of interest to international mobility experts at conferences organized by the American Immigration Lawyers Association, the American Bar Association, the International Bar Association and the Union Internationale des Avocats.
His articles have been published by the French government's Bulletin de Migration, the French National Association of HR Managers journal La Revue Personnel, and the IBA's newletter on Immigration and Nationality Law.
