At Immigration Desk, we routinely help US businesses get EB1C petitions approved for their employees. Additionally, we have helped many foreign business owners successfully start businesses in the US and obtain green cards through the EB1C route.

Like the other EB-1 categories, EB-1C green cards are given preferential treatment leading to a very speedy green card approval.
EB-1C cases require us to collect extensive documentation from the US and the foreign companies.
The legal team must be familiar not only with accounting and business practices in the US, but also in different countries round the world. Some of the crucial knowledge that a legal team must possess to build a successful EB1C case:
Corporate structure and business knowledge
All of these require a seasoned legal team to review the documents so the petition can be created flawlessly and filed in a timely manner.
The difference between “manager” and “executive”
This definition gets even more complex when it comes to smaller companies, where managers are more hands-on and some of their duties may not be “managerial” in nature.
The timing of the petition
Needless to say, there is a lot to consider when creating a solid EB-1C green card petition for an intra-company manager or executive. With a foundational knowledge of business, our legal team at Immigration Desk is adept at creating winning EB-1C petitions.
We represent multi-national companies who are filing for their international transferees, individuals who hire us to work with their employers to file their green cards, and also owners of smaller businesses who have moved to the US to start a branch of their foreign company.

Anu and her team have been handling all my employment- based immigration cases from the start.
Their professional, proactive approach has gone a long way in ensuring timely submissions of all documents, and negotiation of the complex paperwork involved....
Anu secured the L1A, L2 for the family, subsequent renewals and is also responsible for the Green card filing in the EB1C category as an international manager. It has been a pleasant experience working with Anu and I would highly recommend her services to anyone.
Anu Gupta and the Immigration Desk Team have been handling all our personal and corporate immigration cases from our own first L1A visa when we purchased a business in the US, to other visas like H1B and J1 for employees; to filing EB-1C Green Card to US Citizenship.
What differentiates Attorney Anu Gupta from other attorneys is that not only does she have an extremely thorough knowledge of Immigration laws, but that she handles each case with total professionalism and a human touch....
Whenever I or my employees were anxious or needed guidance, all were handled either through e-mail or conference call with great professional attitude and passion.
When you talk to Anu, she talks to you as if you are the only one that she has as a client and her professional approach rests all your concerns. I would recommend each and every one who needs advice on Immigration matters to talk to Anu at least one time and take notice of the difference from other attorneys.
Our L1A and EB1C petitions were approved in record time!
Many thanks to Anu Gupta and her team, who managed our immigration cases with 100% success from the first L1A- International Manager Transferee visa to the EB1C green card.

And when the priority date became current, Immigration Desk filed our I-485 applications. I really appreciate Attorney Gupta's commitment and dedication.
