Rachel Barry is an associate at Arthur Cox, Ireland's leading law firm. She regularly advises Irish and international clients on corporate immigration issues, as well as all matters relating to the employment relationship.
The year 2020 will of course go down in history as one of the most unusual and difficult years the world has faced in modern times. As we prepared this 10th edition of The Corporate Immigration Review, most of the world’s immigration systems had ceased functioning with any semblance of normality. All over the world, government policies and national strategies have been upended by the threat of covid-19. As we celebrate the 10th edition, we hope the 11th will be produced in the context of a greatly revitalised world.
