The lawyers had advised that I have to wait until I get promoted to manager to continue in the process (currently I do perform managerial roles but do not hold the title). Being promoted to manager may take a while and I am concerned that my process will be on hold and my L-1 Visa eligibility to stay in the country will expire. Is there any other choice that I can take? is it strictly necessary that I hold the title of manager? what would happen if I go as as Senior?
I am not necessarily disagreeing with your attorney, but I will point out that the title of a position is irrelevant in determining whether a position is managerial in nature. If the job duties meet the requirements for a managerial position under the immigration regulations, it doesn't matter what the job title is.
If you are unsure whether your attorney is giving you correct information, you should consult with an attorney to get a second opinion. Just because your company has hired an attorney does not mean you cannot hire your own attorney to make sure you are being taken care of.
