H-1B Visa Petition (Concurrent Employment) Approval for Law Firm and Nigerian IT Quality Assurance Project Manager in Cleveland Ohio
CASE: H-1B Concurrent Employment
PETITIONER: Law Firm
BENEFICIARY: Nigerian IT Quality Assurance Project Manager
LOCATION: Cleveland, OH
Our client is a mid-sized law firm which is located in Cleveland, OH. They contacted our office in September 2016 to seek assistance from our office for their foreign employee’s H-1B based on concurrent employment category. The beneficiary is from Nigeria and he obtained his Bachelor’s degree in computer science. The proffered position for the Beneficiary is an IT Quality Assurance Project Manager which we argued qualifies as a specialty occupation. He got his H-1B status with a different petitioner-employer in 2016.
After retention, our office promptly filed the H-1B visa petition with various supporting documents on October 21, 2016 via regular processing. We also gathered supporting documents from both the Petitioner and Beneficiary and argued that beneficiary’s position is a specialty occupation as the law requires. Eventually, our client’s H-1B application was approved on March 15, 2017. His H-1B is good until October 2019.
