L-1 and TN Case Summary 02.01.2019

Senior Associate Attorney Gabriella Agostinelli recently had two successful applications presented to Customs and Border Protection at the Peace Bridge Port of Entry, located in Buffalo, New York. The first case was an L-1 renewal application. This client was applying for the last three years of eligible L-1 status remaining out of seven. Because this was a renewal application, we provided evidence that the U.S. entity is still in business including client contracts, invoices, and financial statements. The client met our NAFTA Paralegal, Sam Tiranno, in Fort Erie, Canada to review the application immediately before presenting. The client was successfully approved for L-1 status for the full three years requested. The second application was for a TN for a Mechanical Engineer. In this application, we proved that the applicant had all of the required credentials in order to qualify for this category including the necessary license, as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering. This application was also successfully approved for the full time period requested.
