TN Approval for Assistant Trader from Canada
We recently secured TN approval under the “Mathematician” TN profession for an Assistant Trader from Canada with a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics. According to one attorney who used to be a CBP officer, Mathematician TNs are extremely rare. In the TN application, we successfully argued that the position properly fit within the Mathematician profession, because as stated in the Occupational Outlook Handbook it is a wide-ranging profession that encompasses a variety of job titles. CBP’s issuance of the TN enabled our client to start work in the United States in July 2011 instead of waiting for his H-1B employment to start in October 2011.

Recent Case Successes
After two years of our continued oversight and follow up, the U.S. Embassy in Korea granted our client's employment-based petition.
Our client entered the U.S. on a fraudulent passport, and returned it to the supplier without keeping a copy of it. We had to prove that he was inspected and admitted into the U.S., not an easy feat when the only piece of evidence proving so is gone.
Our client was a scientist who had to leave the U.S. because he was not selected in the H-1B lottery. He explored the idea of an O-1A with his potential employer, and we went ahead with the case.
