Managing Partner Michael Wildes is proud to announce the approval of the 0-1 visa petition filed on behalf of music manager and executive Harvey Tadman, January 2019.
Harvey Tadman is an esteemed music manager and music executive who is considered among the ranks of other important music figures. He has led the prestigious AYITA and help manage the careers of some of the biggest musicians, including Nero, and deadmau5 and Calvin Harris at Three Six Zero. His influence on the music world cannot be overstated, as he has led musicians of all genres to highly successful careers and universal fame. That Mr. Tadman has been a recognized figure in the music industry since the early 2000’s, combined with the facts that he has led artists to performances reaching thousands of viewers and that he released the best-selling debut albums, is undeniable evidence of his sustained acclaim and stature as an individual of extraordinary ability in the music industry.
In order to qualify for an O-1 visa, which allows individuals of extraordinary ability in the arts, sciences, athletics, education or business to live and work in the United States, a foreign national must provide adequate documentation to demonstrate that he/she has sustained national or international acclaim in their field.
In addition, the individual must provide substantial evidence to prove that he/she meets three of the evidence categories defined by statute, as well as a written advisory opinion from a labor union or relevant peer group. The O-1 visa applicant must also show that he/she has an offer of employment in the United States to work in his/her field of expertise (or several offers of employment from multiple sources, along with a third-party Agent to petition on the individual’s behalf and connect him/her to the multiple employers).
