L-1 and TN Management Consultant Case Summary
On October 18, 2017, Rosanna Berardi, Managing Partner of Berardi Immigration Law, met two of our clients at Fort Erie to help them each prepare to present their L-1 and TN Management Consultant applications to Customs and Border Protection at the Peace Bridge in Buffalo. The first case was an L-1A Intracompany Transferee in which we were seeking to extend his status for an additional three years. Rosanna brought his prepared materials, made sure he understood the corporate affiliation and corporate documentation, could effectively explain his managerial role with the company and helped prep him for some of the possible questions that CBP may ask. Our client was successfully approved for the requested three-year period. In the second case, our client was looking to extend his TN Management Consultant status. This case was a bit more challenging, as you have to prove to the government that the nature of the position is, in fact, consulting work and not actual direct employment. After speaking with Rosanna, our client was able to effectively communicate this to the government and his application was also approved.
