L-1 Case Summary 10.08.2018

Last week, Associate Attorney Catherine Dines had a successful L-1A application approved by Customs and Border Protection at the Peace Bridge, located in Buffalo, New York. The L-1A visa requires that the applicant hold a managerial or executive role. This application was a bit unique in that our client didn’t manage people but rather a function. As a functional manager, our client manages a large revenue stream of sales which is vital to the business in the U.S. After assessing our client’s role and job duties, Catherine determined that the L-1 application was the best fit. She drafted the application in full and stressed the importance of the functional manager role in the letter of support. Our NAFTA Paralegal, Sam Tiranno, then met our client in Fort Erie, Canada in order to prepare her for presenting her application to Customs and Border Protection. We are happy to report that our client was approved for the full three-year period requested.
