International business is often conducted by individuals who arrive in the United States as business visitors, whether with a B-1 visa stamp or pursuant to the visa waiver program.  At the same time, U.S. immigration officials at ports of entry will carefully evaluate a business visitor to determine whether the individual’s proposed activities cross the line into U.S. employment.  We are experienced and skilled at analyzing business visitor situations and advising clients on whether a particular visit is appropriate under the B-1 visa category, or whether an employment visa is required.
