Managing Partner Michael Wildes, Wildes & Weinberg, P.C Interview



Managing Partner Michael Wildes, Wildes & Weinberg, P.C., was interviewed by WPIX TV anchorwoman Kaity Tong on July 16, 2013 in regard e-sports and  on-line gaming.  Under U.S. immigration law internationally recognized individual or team athletes may be granted an O or P-1 visa which will allow them to be temporarily employed in the United States for up to five years.
As League of Legends (LoL), the multiplayer online battle arena video game, continues to gain in popularity, international players are now able to join US LoL teams.

The first international player to be accorded this P-1 status is Canadian player Danny “Shiphtur” Le who had previously been unable to complete due to work permit complications. At present only LoL players may be granted P-1 status if they can meet the requirements of this visa, but this approval opens the door to other international e-sport athletes who can meet the qualifications.  The immigration law firm of Wildes & Weinberg has been servicing the immigration needs of prominent American and International firms, banks, industrial, financial and manufacturing concerns and law firms in connection with the personnel needs of their foreign national employees for more than five decades.  In addition, the firm has a distinguished clientele and has done substantial immigration work for performing artists, directors, writers, models, actors/actresses, athletes, fine artists, art dealers, curators, and literary agents. Most recently, the firm helped Brazilian soccer legend/icon Pele secure an O visa.  Other famed athletes who have benefited from the firm’s expertise include tennis player Virginia Wade, basketball player Kwame James (a/k/a shoe bomber hero),  and legendary golfer Greg Norman, to name a few.
