Nora F. Katz

Hospitals, health systems and healthcare providers – along with automakers, manufacturers and other international employers with U.S. operations – are assisted by Nora Katz with critical immigration matters. Nora helps employers build and retain competitive workforces by preparing nonimmigrant and immigrant visa applications and other required filings, including J-1 waivers for physicians subject to the foreign residence requirement, H-1B visas for specialty occupation professionals, and L-1 visas for intra-company transfers.  She joined Waller in 2014 after gaining extensive experience in immigration law and regulatory compliance with two Am Law 100 law firms.
