Does your start up need a lawyer?
Three considerations to keep in mind
Oct 18, 2017
Summary: Typically, when business owners start up a new company, the founder(s) begin on a bootstrapped budget of their own cash, and less likely, small seed round from friends and family, and if they are lucky, an angel investor.

It is axiomatic that the entire world is experiencing drastic and immediate changes in real-time. This article discusses its impact on the H-1B workers in the United States. Specifically, as a result of the severe impact the novel coronavirus pandemic is having on businesses, employers are struggling to pay H-1B workers the required Labor Condition Application (“LCA”) wage. In order to provide emergency assistance to both businesses and workers, legislators have created ways to maintain payment and benefits to employees through the CARES Act.

An Experienced and Competent Immigration Attorney!!!
Swee Shankar is one of the best and very competent immigration attorneys in Manhattan! I recently had her services for my citizenship application. Both Shankar and her experienced staff pay very careful attention to the details of each and every document they file. She thoroughly reviews all documents herself before filing. Swee and her staff is very friendly and patient. They give proper time to their clients and thoroughly understand the case before taking next steps. I’d recommend Shankar’s services to anyone who is looking for a competent and knowledgeable immigration attorney !

Very qualified immigration lawyer
Sweekrutha and her team worked on my H1 as well as green card application. Even though my chances were slim for the GC, she put in lots of hard work and made sure no stone was unturned until I got it. She is extremely professional and highly qualified in this field. It was a great relief to have someone on your side at all times, during the process. She is a knowledgable lawyer and a kind and sympathetic person. Sweekrutha has my strongest recommendation.

Excellent Lawyer for Employment Base Green Card
I had the pleasure of working with Attorney Sweekrutha Shankar and her professional team on my Naturalization Case from H1B,Labor certification and final stages of Green Card. Sweekrutha Shankar was successful in getting my Green Card approved. Her office and dedicated team cares about their clients and always responded to my email & phone calls promptly.
