The firm assists companies in sponsoring professional employees under the H-1B, E-3 (Australians), H-1B1 (Chileans) and NAFTA TN visa programs. We have helped employers to hire a wide range of professionals, such as engineers, doctors, teachers, computer and IT professionals, agronomists, animal scientists, sales engineers, logistics managers, and numerous other specialized and professional employees who are key to the growth of your business.

We have also represented multinational companies and other organizations with the transfer of managers, executives and specialized professionals from their foreign subsidiaries to United States under the L-1 visa program. Such transfers have included movement of specialized accountants, nuclear technicians, specialized engineers, executives and presidents and other important talent that whose services are required to support U.S. operations.

For larger companies with three or more domestic or foreign branches, subsidiaries, or affiliates and U.S. annual sales of $25 million (or a U.S. workforce of 1000 or at least 10 L-1 petition approvals in the past year), the firm has the capability to help establish an L-1 blanket approval under USCIS regulations to facilitate more efficient transfers of foreign personnel to the United States.

In addition to the typical business work visas, Deason Law immigration attorneys have assisted executives and artists to obtain visa clearance under the O and P visa programs.
