The seminar was well organized and presented, and saved me a lot of time in understanding the legal issues. I am able to help our business expand into U.S. as a result of this seminar.

The workshop gave me a road map for tackling the US immigration challenges ahead. I highly recommend it for Indian executives and CEO's doing business with US.
