Dallas, May 11, 2022 – Innovative immigration firm BAL took home the Texas Consilium’s Business Excellence Award for the best mid-sized company in all of Texas, the most prestigious award for business excellence in the state. The mid-sized category comprises Texas companies with $100 million to $1 billion in revenue.

BAL was honored Monday night with the trophy at an awards gala that recognized the foremost Texas organizations and business leaders who are excelling in their efforts and expanding the vision of what is possible.

“This award recognizing excellence is a huge honor, and reflects the accomplishments of our amazing BAL family,” said Jeremy Fudge, Managing Partner of BAL. “Our secret sauce is our culture and our common spirit of pursuing the exceptional in everything we do, and it’s our incredible people who make BAL such a successful organization and a truly unique and special place to work.”

An award-winning immigration firm, BAL exemplifies the Texas Consilium’s model of a “continuous improvement journey.” BAL is not only the world’s leading immigration law firm – the trailblazing firm continues to expand and challenge traditional boundaries, by leveraging its expertise in areas like technology, customer service, corporate training, and operational excellence.

With its headquarters in Richardson, Texas, BAL has rapidly expanded its nationwide footprint, recently opening offices in Austin, Chicago, and Denver. “We have an innovative spirit that is constantly pushing onward,” said Fudge. “And the strength of our firm is the unique talent of each team member.  We all bring different strengths, backgrounds, education, and skills. I tell employees, ‘That unique combination you have—only you can contribute that in the whole world.’”
