What Practice Areas in Immigration Law Do Business Immigration Lawyers Represent?
Employment-based green cards are not simple to obtain. Even those who apply with all necessary information take special care to ensure that American immigration agencies are adequately impressed so that they may approve a visa.
San Jose immigration attorneys may provide helpful legal representation in the following areas:
- Investors who are looking to invest a certain qualifying amount in American business may be eligible for visas specifically dedicated to investors who are launching companies in the U.S. that provide employment to U.S. citizens and authorized foreign nationals. There are visas available to investors on a temporary or permanent basis.
- Multinational executive visas for managers whose company operates in multiple countries and will now be operating for the foreseeable future in the United States.
- PERM labor certifications from the U.S. Department of Labor are one of the initial steps to obtaining employment-based green cards.
- Permanent work visas for those who plan to be working in the United States for an extended period of time.
- Temporary work visas for workers and employees from around the world who need permission to work in the United States at least until a certain task is completed.
- Visas for those with special skills that may make them of unique national interest to the country or whose skills cannot be easily matched by others living in the United States.
Our law firm has experience representing clients who are executives, managers, company owners, employees, those expanding their businesses, those merging with American corporations, those making big investments, those working for the U.S. government, scientists, artists, and athletes. Immigration law has steps and allowances for all individuals hoping to chase the ‘American Dream’ or whatever business opportunity brings them to America’s shores.

What Are the Options for Business Visas in the United States?
Though the immigration process is complicated, that does not mean that immigrants lack options.
The various visas for international companies and employees include (but are not limited to):
- E-1: a treaty trader visa allowing a person to enter the U.S. to perform trade.
- EB-1A: a visa for foreign nationals with a unique set of skills for a particular industry.
- EB-1B: a visa for non-citizens who are outstanding professors and researchers.
- EB-1C: a visa that allows for the transfer of a foreign executive to a related or affiliated U.S. company.
- EB-3: the ‘Third Priority Worker’ visa.
- EB-4: the ‘Fourth Priority Worker’ visa for ‘special immigrants.’
- EB-5: a visa for an investor coming to America with a sizeable investment.
- H-1B: allows U.S. employers to employ foreign nationals for jobs temporarily.
There are a number of immigration services and types of visas available to those with business interests in the U.S. To learn more about your potential eligibility, contact our San Jose law firm and discuss your individual case with an immigration attorney with decades of experience.
Can Immigrants Obtain Legal Residency via Employment-Based Immigration Visas?
Applications that are approved may not only result in individuals receiving green cards, but they may also provide deportation defense and a pathway towards eventually obtaining citizenship. Those applying for employment-based visas may also benefit from family immigration, including family visas for a spouse or underage children.
Although foreign nationals may acquire a visa that allows them to enter and work in the U.S., immigration law is such that the U.S. government must take steps to ensure that it is properly protecting the jobs of its own citizens. For this and many other reasons, it is important to speak with immigration lawyers who can provide personal counsel and help an applicant obtain residency by explaining the value that the worker would bring to the country.
