Case Summary:

“Considering that the United States heavily relies on catalyst research for the synthesis and production of chemicals and materials, it is clear that [Client]’s work is of significant value to the country. He has and will continue to further our knowledge of sustainable chemical processes and the reutilization of catalysts.”

The above statement was written by a distinguished professor of chemistry in support of our client’s continued stay in the United States. This recommendation letter, along with several others, explained the nature of our client’s work in the field of organic chemistry and also expounded cogent arguments regarding the significance of his research in developing new catalysts that may be used in fuel enhancement, environmental protection, and industrial chemistry.

While preparing our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition, we chose to focus on 3 areas of his academic portfolio which proved his extraordinary ability as an organic chemist with sustained international influence:

  • Publication record: Our client has communicated the findings of his research in 7 peer-reviewed scientific articles that have been published in several leading scientific journals.
  • Citations: The 154 citations gathered from his publications proved the relevant nature of his work to his peers based all around the world.
  • Review work: Our client has further contributed to the field by conducting 30 peer reviews for various journals, a task that only top-level experts are invited to perform

We are extremely pleased that our joint efforts led to EB1A approval. Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), we received notification of case approval merely 13 days after filing. We congratulate our client on this win and thank him for trusting us to represent his case.
