A Busy and Successful Week at the Peace Bridge

Our attorneys presented a total of 5 L-1 applications and 1 TN application and all were approved!
On Tuesday, Rosanna Berardi, managing partner, accompanied three business professionals applying for L-1A status as managers/executives.  Ms. Berardi was requested to meet the clients at the Peace Bridge and assist them in presenting the applications to the Customs & Border Protection.  All three gentlemen were approved L-1 status for a 3-year period.
On Wednesday, attorney Jennifer Early met with a Computer Systems Analyst to renew his TN status on behalf of our client, a large IT firm with operations in Toronto and NYC.  The applicant was quickly granted status for 3 years.  Ms. Early also met with a second client, a Canadian business entrepreneur who wanted to open a new office in the U.S.  We determined his eligibility for L-1A status and prepared a comprehensive application package detailing the company’s operations in Canada, the company’s business plan for expansion in the U.S., and the client’s role as a company executive.  He was approved for a 1-year period.
On Thursday, Ms. Early met with a client to present another application for L-1A status.  Here, the applicant’s Canadian employer recently purchased a company in Buffalo and needed him to be able to periodically enter the U.S. and work as the Director of Finances.  The applicant was approved for 3-years without any issue.
