Founding Attorney Matt Streff has experience working with Fortune 500 international supply chain operations to small-lab biomedical research startups reaching out to scientific communities across the globe.
International and domestic business needs the best talent, and U.S. immigration can be incredibly difficult to manage. Streff Legal can help new business owners with a variety of immigration options geared towards start up businesses and those looking to increase their international capabilities, including...
- L-1A/B Intracompany Transferees for Managers or Specialists
- E-2 Treaty Investors / EB-5 Investors
- H-2B Peak/Intermittent/Seasonal Need Foreign Workers
- National Interest Waivers - Permanent Residence for Entrepreneurs
- O-1, EB-1 Extraordinary Ability
- PERM, Exceptional Ability, Schedule A-II
Investors and Entrepreneurs may be eligible for self-sponsorship. If you will be maintaining international business connections and will have employees in the U.S. and abroad, the L-1 visa for international managers and specialists is a very flexible option.
Those seeking to start business activities in the U.S. may have the option of serving as an E-2 treaty investor, and there is no set limit on the amount of investment needed. There are some other requirements, such as the need to be involved in the operation of a U.S. enterprise capable of sustaining legitimate business operations.
O-1 and EB-1/2 extraordinary ability options can be available for business-persons who have significant career achievement. These categories can be also made for others, such as artists, scientists, or many professionals essential to business efforts.
Otherwise, Streff Legal can help navigate the restrictions on traditional types of professional immigration options, such as H-1B or PERM Labor Certification. These require close attorney attention in instances where a foreign worker is implicated in ownership of a business, but it is not impossible.
EB-5 Investor-Based Permanent Residence is available for individuals
