L-1A EXECUTIVE INTRACOMPANY TRANSFEREE APPROVED IN ONE HOUR
Our client is a Canadian citizen. He is co-owner of a Subway franchise in Canada and co-owner of another franchise in the United States. The U.S. company required our client’s hands-on presence at this time, to oversee and expand its business operations.
As a result of his employment as President of the Canadian company, and his proposed employment as President of the U.S. company, we determined our client was eligible for L-1A status as an Intracompany Transferee as an Executive. We advised the company what documentation would be necessary to have a petition approved on his behalf. We prepared a compelling package for submission at the border under NAFTA. We prepared our client for his inspection at the border and appeared with him in the event any problems arose.
His L-1A status was approved in approximately one hour.
