L-1A Case Summaries 10.15.2018

Last week, Associate Attorney Catherine Dines Kettner had two successful L-1A applications presented to Customs and Border Protection by our clients at the Peace Bridge in Buffalo, New York. Both clients worked for the same company.  These applications were a bit different in terms of their corporate taxes. Often times, as a form of viable operations of both the foreign and U.S. entity, we will include tax returns. However, for tax purposes in this particular case, it appeared that neither entity had ongoing operations. Because of this, we instead included invoices and other documents as evidence of ongoing viable operations for both entities. Both clients had straightforward managerial roles and Catherine was able to detail this in the applications. Our clients met with our NAFTA Paralegal Sam Tiranno in Fort Erie, Canada immediately before presenting their applications. Sam went through the applications with them and answered all of their last minute questions. Both applications were successfully approved for the full length of time requested!
