Toledo, OH asked in Business Law, Contracts and Immigration Law for California

Q: I want to open a business of linking in Los Angeles and I don't know what visa, legal statut and contrat I need.

I am French, I am 20 years old and I only had my high school diploma in France.

I would like to know what visa I must have to open my business of linking French food suppliers and restaurants in Los Angeles (knowing that I would not have much money to invest at the beginning).

I would also like to know what legal status I should take for having my visa for this business.

After having my visa and my compnay have the legal statut appropriate to the fact to opening a business of linking French food suppliers and restaurants in Los Angeles, I would like to create contracts between French suppliers and restaurants where they will only have the right to go through me for their transactions (a kind of exclusivity contract). What contract is needed for this ?

A: You should consider engaging an experienced immigration attorney to assist you with an E-1 visa. The attorney will discuss with you all of the necessary requirements for a French citizen to begin a business venture in the U.S. that will qualify you for the E-1.

Good luck to you.
