Multinational Managers and Executives

Immigration into the United States is always a difficult procedure. The experienced immigration attorneys at Sam Shihab & Associates help qualified foreign nationals who are managers and executives for multinational companies to obtain EB-1 and L-1A work visas. Foreign nationals and their U.S.-based employers rely on us for comprehensive legal assistance with business and employment emigration and with trader, investor, and work visas. Our experienced immigration lawyers offer guidance in all matters relating to immigration and naturalization, visas, business, and employment.


To obtain an EB-1 visa, a multinational manager or executive must be employed (in a managerial or executive capacity) outside the United States for three years prior to the petition and for at least one year by the firm or corporation sponsoring the visa petition, or by an affiliate or subsidiary of the sponsoring firm or corporation. The L-1A is a nonimmigrant visa designed for multinational managers and executives who need to enter the U.S. for an intra-company transfer. Requirements for the L-1A visa are similar to requirements for the EB-1 visa; a good immigration lawyer can determine if you satisfy the criteria and help you complete and file a visa petition.


Advice from a good immigration lawyer is absolutely essential for companies sponsoring EB-1 and L-1A visa holders. The experienced immigration attorneys at Sam Shihab & Associates review visa petitions for thoroughness and accuracy, and we provide workers and employers with complete immigration-related legal services. Partnering with the immigration attorneys at Sam Shihab & Associates is the perfect answer for companies that may not have in-house legal counsel experienced with U.S. visa applications. Businesses with their own in-house counsel work in conjunction with us on virtually every matter pertaining to U.S. emigration law. We have offices in Dublin and Columbus, Ohio and in Troy, Michigan, but we work for clients around the world.
