Welcome, Legalpad, to Deel! As work becomes more distributed and global, together we can solve the immigration challenges employers face when building a global workforce. 

Deel’s mission is to give millions of people the chance to work for the best companies in the world, no matter where they’re located. A big part of achieving this goal is making sure people can get the right visas to work in a certain country smoothly and quickly. Most recently, our mobility team forged a partnership with the UAE government to fast-track their tech visas to more people.

Our acquisition of Legalpad will do even more to connect employers with talent around the world. Since its founding in 2018, Legalpad has helped thousands of global workers work for US companies. Its leading technology streamlines the cumbersome and difficult-to-navigate work visa processes, making it, for instance, 66% faster for US businesses to hire people from other countries. Legalpad’s goal of giving anyone the chance to pursue opportunities, regardless of where they were born, helps Deel achieve its mission even faster.

Our plan is to integrate Legalpad’s team of mobility experts and software with our current immigration organization and improve our capabilities in product. We’ll add their US visa processing services to our existing ones so we can help process more visas in more countries like France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Singapore. Customers will get expanded mobility support, as well as Deel’s all-in-one platform for all of their onboarding, compliance, and payroll needs. To learn more, visit here.
