L-1 Case Summary 08.14.2018

Associate Attorney Catherine Dines Kettner recently met one of our clients in Fort Erie, Canada in order to assist him in presenting his L-1A application to Customs and Border Protection at the Peace Bridge in Buffalo, New York. This was our client’s first L-1A application to CBP. After assessing the client’s eligibility for a U.S. work visa and determining that the L-1A was the best fit, Catherine fully prepared the L-1 application. When meeting with the client in Fort Erie, Catherine answered all of his last minute questions and reviewed the application in full with him. She also reviewed some of the questions that CBP may ask him. This application was unique in that we had to get creative with proving the company’s financials, as the financial structure was a bit different and straightforward financial statements were unavailable. We were instead able to successfully use invoice and contracts for work. We are happy to report that our client was approved for the full L-1 period requested. If you are interested in applying for an L-1, be sure to contact our office to set up a consultation with one of our attorneys today!
