AGG Immigration & Global Mobility attorneys Teri Simmons and Matt Ohm will be speaking at the American Immigration Lawyers Association (“AILA”) 2024 Annual Conference in Chicago, Illinois, from June 12-15, 2024. The conference will be held virtually and in person at the McCormick Place Convention Center West Building.

Teri joins the “E-1/E-2 Overview” panel during the fundamentals track. As the treaty trader (E-1) and treaty investor (E-2) visa categories allow nationals of countries with which the United States maintains a treaty of commerce and navigation to be admitted to the United States when investing in a U.S. entity or engaging in international trade, this session will discuss how to assess whether there is qualifying trade or investment, and they will advise on best practices to employ during the application process.

Matt joins the “Advanced Issues for L-1 Visas” panel during the business track. With ongoing issues limiting H-1B visa availability and country-specific nonimmigrant visa categories, the L-1 visa remains an important option for employers with international operations. Panelists will address L visas for new offices, blanket Ls, and upgrades from L-1B to L-1A and L visas for Canadians.

The 2024 AILA conference brings together the largest gathering of immigration law professionals in the country.
