Case Summary:

At North America Immigration Law Group –, we are lucky enough to work with researchers and professionals who are pushing their fields to new levels of success. One exceptional client we worked with recently is a professional in the Oil and Gas industry. His work has included improving international collaboration within the industry and driving evolution in exploration strategy.  For this client, we focused on the way that his contributions and leadership shaped advancement and successful projects in his industry. As one of his independent recommender’s remarked, “[Client] is a rare individual whose keen business sense is enhanced by a systematic and analytical approach to the resolution of the critical commercial and delicate political challenges that entail a high degree of risk assessment and, more importantly, the leadership to institute comprehensive uniform policies so that the entire team advances apace. [Client] has built a reputation on his ability to deliver on schedule by mitigating risks; bringing to the table technical know-how, financial resources, marketing genius, and strategic vision.” Our aim was to show that this client’s success in the Oil and Gas industry qualified him as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability because his goal was to remain in the United States and continue his work in this field. As this client was also filing under NIW, we also aimed to prove that by continuing his work in the United States, there would be substantial and prospective benefit to this country. The proof and documentation we provided led his case to be approved in 3 ½ months for NIW and an impressive 25 days for EB1-A.
