Data Analytics Company Wins H-1B Appeal

North America - United States | North America | United States - California

A leading data analytics company prevailed in an H-1B appeal involving a solution integration lead consultant. Our firm represented the company in the matter.
The company first filed the H-1B petition in September 2018, hoping to temporarily employ the consultant under the visa’s nonimmigrant classification for specialty occupations. The Director of the California Service Center (CSC) denied the petition, contending that the petitioner did not provide sufficient information to corroborate that the employee’s role was a specialty occupation.
We appealed, submitting a brief and additional evidence and arguing that the director erred in denying the petition. Upon de novo review, the appeal was sustained.
