Tuesday, April 25th, 2023

12:00 p.m.

Among the many challenges for multinational businesses, relocating principals and upper management to the U.S. is a major issue when starting up or expanding into the U.S. Uncertainty surrounding work visas for ex-pat workers can create challenges for business strategy, delay expansion, create costs and ultimately, create losses. Legal liability, including fines, and other penalties, can be imposed for conduct by executives that exceeds their visitor visa status.

Hear from international business owners who successfully utilized the L visa in their organizations – the important role of the overseas workforce, what factors they considered when evaluating immigration vehicles and how the strategy ultimately played out in their operations.

Attendees of this webinar will learn about:

  • Recent trends in cross-border business activity;
  • Establishing operations in the U.S., including in the business strategy, marketing and multilingual translation industries;
  • Business matters specific to Canada, UK and Europe.
  • Visas and immigration issues unique to cross-border businesses.
