Managing Partner Michael Wildes is pleased to announce the firm’s success in obtaining EB11 “extraordinary ability” classification for Nick Holmsten, a visionary in the music industry and native of Sweden.   

Nick Homsten

Over the course of a truly impressive career, Mr. Holmsten has made major contributions to the industry through his work with companies like Tunigo, Spotify, and now the visionary TSX Entertainment project in New York’s Times Square. The EB1 immigrant visa or “green card” classification is reserved for an elite few, and we are proud to have helped Mr. Holmsten showcase his exceptional skill and experience.  Wildes & Weinberg had previously secured an approval of a temporary O-1 visa for Mr. Holmsten based on his outstanding talents, and we are thrilled that his petition for permanent residency has been approved.
