Scott Fanning’s article “The Mad March Dash for H-1B Visas” was featured in Inside Counsel on March 19, 2015.
March is bringing more madness to the workplace than basketball brackets this year. Right now, employers are preparing to submit an unprecedented 200,000 or more H-1B petitions for only 85,000 available spots for the upcoming fiscal year starting on October 1.

- Fighting the record-breaking crowds
- Bracket busters
