| Intended Audience: All Levels
Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn about the numerous hurdles at the USCIS and the consulates in transferring multinational employees to their U.S. companies; strategies to overcome those obstacles to meet strategic business needs and provide informed support and guidance to transferees; and ways to avoid unnecessary costs throughout the process. This session will particularly focus on the current state of the L-1B process for both consular processing and USCIS filings.  

As the business needs of companies have evolved, it has become both common and necessary for organizations to transfer executives, managers and employees from non-U.S. entities to the U.S. to ensure meaningful, consistent and effective expertise and management within the company. However, companies can face numerous hurdles in this process. This session will identify best practices for L-1B success, detail the challenges of filing with the USCIS and of consular processing, and define “specialized knowledge” vs. “advanced knowledge” with regard to the L-1B process.
