At the start of each year, we kick off H-1B Cap Season by working with U.S. employers to prepare for registration in the upcoming H-1B Cap Lottery. U.S. employers interested in sponsoring foreign nationals for specialty (professional) occupations have this opportunity only once per year for a limited time period.

For a primer on how the process works, and why it’s important, read our January 3 client alert. The H-1B process can be daunting for even the most experienced employers, but for companies that are relatively new to the process it can be downright intimidating. That’s why it’s important to get an early start and engage experienced Immigration Law counsel to help you navigate this regulatory maze.
