New York City L-1 Visa Lawyers

Serving Worldwide Clients With Business Operations in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and the U.S.

L-1 visas are available for foreign workers whose company transferred them to the United States to work at a U.S. operations. L-1 visas are non-immigrant (temporary) visas. In many cases, international companies expanding to the U.S. will apply for L-1 visas for workers with specialized knowledge, who will be responsible start-up operations, generally for a period of one year. Extensions are available thereafter, if the company can show it is doing business.

If your business is considering expanding to the New York City area or anywhere in the eastern United States, schedule a consultation with an immigration attorney at Weisberg, Friedman & Klapisch, LLP. We will help you develop the job descriptions that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) expects to see, before approving an L-1 visa. We can also give legal advice regarding the records and documentation your business will require in the event an extension application becomes necessary at the end of the L-1 time period.
