Case Summary:

Not long ago, North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition for a researcher in Minnesota working in the field of organic chemistry. As EB-1B is an employer-sponsored visa category, our client had to be sure that his employer—a private university—was fully on board before hiring our law firm. Once everything was in order, we started gathering as much pertinent information as we could. Thanks to our client’s outstanding ability, highly skilled background, and impressive record of achievements, we were able to build a strong EB-1B case for him.

Based on the information we gathered, we were able to demonstrate to the USCIS that our client is focused on the development of novel synthetic methodologies and their application towards the synthesis of biologically active compounds. Part of our services included proving that his innovative and groundbreaking research addresses some of United States’ most pressing issues in understanding how to improve methods to synthesize and discover compounds for the benefit of numerous fields and industries, such as in pharmaceutical research.

Alongside details on our client’s research, we demonstrated to the USCIS that at the time of filing, his work had resulted in 4 peer-reviewed scientific articles that had accumulated a total of 224 citations, indicating the major significance of his findings to researchers from prestigious universities and organizations around the world. He had also conducted at least 13 manuscript reviews for several high-ranking journals in the field of organic chemistry. In addition to that, his role as an editorial board member of a prestigious journal was also noted.

The significance of our client’s research was confirmed by an independent recommender: “In short, [Client] is a superb chemist, a claim I can make not just on his qualifications or his prospects, but in light of his past record of achievement. [Client] has made contributions to organic chemistry that have given scientists new tools for producing the components needed to drive industrial and public-health related fields.”  Several other industry experts also contributed letters of support, all of which played a significant role in strengthening our client’s EB1B case.

Overall, it was our goal to prove that our client qualified for classification as an outstanding professor or researcher. His petition was approved in just 7 days, the short time span being the result of Premium Processing (PP) offered by the USCIS. We are delighted at the success of our client’s EB1B petition and we wish him the very best as he continues to excel in the field of organic chemistry.
