H-1B Workers in Specialty Occupations
H-1B is the most common “work visa” which is available to most companies in the United States seeking to hire professional level employees from abroad who are working in “specialty occupations” (e.g., actuaries, accountants, engineers, financial analysts, etc.). Our services in this area go well beyond simply preparing and filing H-1B petitions. We help client companies ensure compliance with the myriad of regulatory requirements associated with the H-1B program, including the complex Labor Condition Application (LCA) requirements. We also counsel on strategic issues involving international travel, green card sponsorship, changes in employment relationship, the annual H-1B cap, etc.
We have expertise preparing H-1Bs for a broad range of occupations in numerous industries. Our clients range from small Silicon Valley startups, to established multinational high-tech and financial services corporations.
