Intelligent Chip Design Meets Intelligent Growth Strategies
As chip design has gotten smarter, the market for Synopsys products, including electronic chip design and security testing, has exploded. During the 16 years TSM has handled US immigration for Synopsys its foreign national workforce has grown 300%. Driven by M&A transactions around the world, Synopsys relies on TSM for an analysis of the strategic impact on immigration, due diligence related to immigration, and a seamless integration of the target company’s workforce as they become Synopsis employees. It’s a role TSM has played on at least 17 different M&A transactions with companies that number in the hundreds of foreign national employees.

Good Communication Guides Smarter Hiring
When TSM took on immigration matters for Guidewire, a software maker for the insurance industry, we immediately set about fixing long-standing communication issues and addressing a lack of transparency between foreign nationals and counsel. To open lines of communication, ensure good representation, and keep foreign national employees up-to-date on their immigration process, TSM held forums, town halls and one-on-ones with all employees. The programs we put in place were so effective we continue them to this day, on a regular basis. At TSM, we keep the lines of communication open and are always available.
