Over the past few years, the L-1 category has experienced profound procedural and systemic changes, forcing attorneys to reconsider the best course of action for these intracompany transferees. For example, in 2018, CBP officers at border crossings limited the processing of L-1 renewals. In addition, DOS changed the standard of review of blanket L-1 petitions at U.S. embassies and consulates, and USCIS saw more filings for extensions due to travel restrictions and embassy closures impacting the processing of L-1 blanket petitions. Our experts on this intermediate panel will review these changes and advise on best practices and effective strategies for how to navigate them.

Featured Topics

  • Inconsistent CBP Practices at Ports-of-Entry
  • Blanket L-1s: The Standard of Review and How to Handle It
  • Practical Tips and Strategies for Difficult L-1 Cases (e.g., Functional Managers, Specialized Knowledge, etc.), Setting Client Expectations
  • Navigating L Visa Restrictions Pursuant to the June 24, 2020, Presidential Proclamation
