Grounded in Nathan Waxman’s reputation as a national leader in the practice of business, professional, and academic immigration law, the practice specializes in devising creative and ethical immigration strategies for individuals and companies.
WAXLAW represents clients throughout the entire realm of employment-based immigration, from musicians and entertainers touring the US, to university professors, physicians, and engineers seeking to contribute permanently to the US and its economy.
WAXLAW has gained particular national and, indeed, international, recognition for its strength in the strategic application of legal mechanisms available to foreign nationals who wish to remain in the US permanently. Nathan has lectured and written extensively on the twin self-sponsorship mechanisms for obtaining permanent residence: national interest waiver and extraordinary ability, and for guiding technologically sophisticated corporations and nonprofit institutions in the utilization of H, O, and J nonimmigrant categories for temporary workers, and of labor certification to assure a stable permanent workforce.
Finally, Nathan is recognized as a national authority on the subtleties of the still elusive American Competitiveness in the Twenty-First Century Act of 2000 (AC 21) and its significance to employers as well as intending immigrants. As most our client base is aware, AC21 revolutionized H-1 practice by enabling H-1 personnel to extend their ability to work beyond 6 years, to “port” from one employer to another, as well as enabling adjustment-of-status applicants to change jobs or employers before they have completed the permanent residence process.
