Dario Dzananovic concentrates his practice on immigration matters. Prior to joining the firm, Dario obtained his Ph.D. in comparative migration law from Radboud University Nijmegen in the Netherlands. In his Ph.D. dissertation, he examined the role of faith-based organizations in the governance of migration law and policy in the United States and in the Netherlands. While he worked on his Ph.D., he also worked for a law firm in the Chicago area handling class action litigation and personal injury matters. Prior to that, Dario worked for a boutique law firm in the Chicago loop concentrating on consumer fraud and civil rights class action work. Before getting into litigation, he worked as in-house counsel for a venture capital firm handling primarily transactional matters – from simple contract drafting and negotiation to complex, multi-round investment documentation.
