Case Study

L1 and EB1C Approved Cases

L1 Visas

L-1 Visas are often used by multinational companies to transfer senior employees from overseas parent companies (Parent Company), subsidiary companies (Subsidiary), or affiliate companies (Affiliate Company) to US branches. There are two main types of L-1 visas:

L-1A visa is used to transfer senior managers (Managerial Capacity) or senior executives (Executive Capacity);

The L-1B visa is used to send employees with specialized knowledge and skills that ordinary American workers do not have (Specialized Knowledge Worker)

EB-1C Visa

The EB-1C visa is one of the third types of employment visas in the first priority type of visa. It is mainly suitable for executives and senior managers who work for multinational companies with business establishments in the United States and China to immigrate to the United States and become a permanent residents.

EB1C application procedures are tedious, and applicants are advised to cooperate with immigration attorneys who have sufficient EB1C experience.

Springdale Law Group undertook this case and applied for a three-year L-1A multinational company manager work visa (2017~2020) for Client A. In 2018, we were entrusted to apply for EB1C immigration for client A. Our team prepared a detailed list of documents according to the current policy and possible RFE requirements and discussed with client A how to prepare these data. In addition to the necessary documents such as the application letter and business plan, which are prepared by us, the company’s Employer explanation letter, helpful recommendation letter, and other applicants can be drafted by us with confidence.

After the approval of the L-1 extension, although there are shortcomings such as the short establishment of the company, the small size of the company, the lack of funds, the lack of financial status, and personnel changes, after discussing with customer B, for To gain time, it is recommended to mail the EB-1C application as soon as possible.

Company Industry: Interior Design
Chinese company: established in 2019, with 10 employees
American company: established in 2020, with 2 employees
Beneficiary Position: CEO
Brief Facts: The life of being an American interior design entrepreneur was a dream Client D was determined to realize, and for some reason, his B-2 visa application was denied more than 5 times. In 2018, Client D hired a former attorney to file the L-1A petition for him. Client D spent millions of dollars preparing and establishing a business in one of the major business locations in the United States. He was confident that his 2018 L-1A petition would be approved; however, USCIS quickly denied his application.

Springdale Law Group took on the case and believed that the reasons for the denial of his original filings were that they had not been explained in detail as they should have been. We explained every piece of evidence and built a solid network of references to substantiate every eligibility requirement. The attorney support letter alone ran to 70 pages, and after countless hours of constant revisions, strategy meetings, and refinements, we custom-crafted an RFE, Presenting Client D’s qualifications as clearly and directly as possible makes it very easy for the magistrate to read and refer to the corresponding evidence. After a long wait, client D’s case was successfully passed.

Brief Facts: Client C had a rare opportunity to come to the United States to work for a large consumer products company. As a qualified candidate, Client C was well-suited for this highly specialized position. Provide evidence that can prove his ability, coupled with his poor interview performance, his L1B visa application was rejected, and he was frustrated.

Springdale Law Group Spring undertook this case and provided Client C with a detailed questionnaire to fully understand his job responsibilities and professional knowledge beyond the usual working hours. A checklist is also provided with suggestions for other documents he should provide to demonstrate his expertise. Due to the cooperation of our team and Client C, Client C has a large number of documents to demonstrate his expertise, which provides his Action and builds confidence. Our attorneys discussed the entire process with Client C and edited and rewritten the attorney brief to help him achieve his goals, and Client C’s case went through without an RFE. We thank Client C for his trust.
