Green card for LZ (Intra-company transferee)

I am on an LZ visa (intra-company tranferee, specialized knowledge) and wanted to know if the process for green card also includes PERM/Labor or can I skip this the way L1A holders can? Thank you.

Only L-1s who were managers or executives can skip the PERM process.

If you happened to be an exec or manager for the company abroad one year in the last three then you probably could but if not then you would have to go through the labor certification process. It's pretty fact specific so before deciding yes or no it'd be good to talk it over in detail with an immigration attorney.
