On December 12th, 2019, we received another EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) approval for a Senior Scientist in the Field of Organic and Organometallic Chemistry (Approval Notice).

General Field: Organic and Organometallic Chemistry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Senior Scientist

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Missouri

Approval Notice Date: December 12th, 2019

Processing Time: 5 months, 1 days

Case Summary:

The field of organic and organometallic chemistry has seen significant progress since our client, a senior scientist, started researching on the development of palladium and nickel organometallic compounds at a high oxidation state for use in carbon-carbon cross coupling and carbon-heteroatom bond formation reactions. With a doctoral degree in chemistry, our client is armed with the relevant skill sets needed to continue conducting outstanding research that benefits the field as well as the United States.

Our client hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him file an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition. Seeing that EB-1B is an employer-sponsored visa category, he had to garner his employer’s full support before hiring us. Once his employer supplied us with the relevant paperwork required to file the petition, our attorneys and support staff immediately got to work building a strong EB-1B case for our client. We paid special attention to his professional performance which resulted in the publication of 7 scientific articles and 214 citations to his work. We also noted the 40 times he assessed the work of his peers. Based on the information we gathered, we were able to successfully prove to the USCIS that our client is a leader in the field and that not many other similarly qualified scientists can take his place.

Additionally, we padded our client’s EB-1B petition packet with recommendation letters that he had collected from notable experts in his field. Here is what one of them say about our client: “[Client] has quickly risen to the forefront of his chosen field due to his unusual multipronged expertise in organic and organometallic chemistry. This has made him particularly well-suited to addressing some of the most pressing challenges in the field of research, which is demonstrated through his trailblazing work on the usage of nickel complexes as catalytic materials. Thus, it is of major importance that [client] is able to continue his work in the field without interruption.”

Because we were able to prove to the USCIS that our client’s investigation advances the United States, he is now one step closer to permanent residence. We thank our client for allowing our firm to represent his EB-1B case, and we wish him well as he continues to advance the field of organic and organometallic chemistry.
