The American Dream is very much alive. Foreign business, small and large, foreign individuals and other entities all find the US an attractive market to enter. Many domestic businesses across the nation hire foreign workers because they are in desperate need of the skills and training these professionals have. There is a huge shortage of available talent in the science, technology and engineering fields (commonly referred to as STEM) not just at home, but around the world.
The bottom line is that America needs the best talent to succeed, and entrepreneurs and startups often look abroad to fill key positions. Immigration laws, business law and practice and taxation are amongst the key areas that such entities and individuals must navigate with their counsel. This CLE presentation on visa options available to entrepreneurs and startup companies will focus on adjudication trends, practical tips & guidance for applications and points to consider when deciding what visa options work best. Along these areas, tax and business law, business planning considerations will also be discussed.
The following visas will mainly be discussed: H-1B Specialty Occupation Visa, O-1A Extraordinary Ability Visa, L-1 Intracompany Transferee Visa, E-2 Treaty Investor/E-1 Treaty Trader Visa, Parole for Startup Entrepreneurs, EB-1A Extraordinary Ability Petition, EB-1C Multinational Manager or Executive and EB-2 National Interest Waiver.
