Multinational Managers and Executives

columbus multinational managers and executives attorney

Immigration into the United States is always a difficult procedure. Our immigration attorneys at Sam Shihab & Associates possess the necessary experience to help qualified foreign nationals who are managers and executives for multinational companies to obtain EB-1 and L-1A work visas. Several foreign nationals and their U.S.-based employers have already taken advantage of our exhaustive range of  legal assistance services (we help with business and employment immigration issues, and also help clients to obtain trader, investor and work visas). Reach out to our experienced lawyers so we can guide you and answer all your questions 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. We offer a comprehensive set of immigration-related legal services to all our clients, and we obviously take our job very seriously. That’s why some of the critical steps that we take at Sam Shihab & Associates is to carefully review all visa petitions, because we want to make sure that your petitions are 100% accurate and complete. Partnering with the immigration attorneys at Sam Shihab & Associates is the perfect solution for those companies that may lack an in-house legal expert that is knowledgeable about 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 three locations – Dublin and Columbus (Ohio) and in Troy (Michigan). However, you can always contact us even if you’re in a distant location, because we can work with clients from all corners of the World. Try us out – call us or send a quick email, and one of our attorneys will happily discuss your immigration issue with you.
