EB-2 National Interest Waiver for a Wall Street Wizard


An impressive hedge fund manager requested an exemption from the Labor Certification Requirement for his EB-2 petition based on the national interest of his work.

Our seasoned EB-1 attorney team was able to craft a petition for an EB-2 National Interest Waiver (NIW) that highlighted his track record of consistent financial success in leadership and critical roles at for-profit and non-profit organizations—and the subsequent benefits that this success brought to the lives of other Americans—as well as his major conceptual innovations in investment strategy and contributions to the global economy and U.S. jobs market. Through continuous open dialogue between the team and our client, we ultimately curated robust testimonial support highlighting the client’s unambiguous expertise and professional contributions from field-leading experts at premier professional and academic institutions across the country, including individuals who had discussed the client’s work in their own professional presentations and publications. These collaborative efforts resulted in the approval of our client’s petition without a request for additional evidence.

About the EB-2 National Interest Waiver

Individuals can self-sponsor an NIW classification under the EB-2 category based on their prior accomplishments and the benefit of their work to the national interests of the United States. A job offer or employer sponsorship is NOT required and the criteria can be more flexible than an EB-1 but are still very difficult to meet. This option is an immigrant visa and is a path to a green card.
