- I would like to hire a friend of mine who has a H1B and will get laid off in few weeks from another company.
- He has great skills to help my business.
- I would like to transfer his H1B to my LLC.
- My company is an LLC. Unfortunately we do NOT have revenue yet.
Question 1: is it possible to hire the person without revenue at all? Is it possible to pay in equity only?
Question 2: if a cash salary has to be given, is it possible to have my friend invest in the company (he gets equity) and then I can pay him monthly.
Question 3: what type of lawyer should I contact? An immigration lawyer? An LLC lawyer (what's the exact name)? Both?
