Meet the Team

Roman Zelichenko
Co-Founder & CEO
After graduating from Brooklyn Law School where Roman founded the Brooklyn Law Immigration Society, he landed a job practicing US immigration law at a DC immigration firm. Handling a high volume of H-1B cases, Roman quickly realized that he was often doing more administrative paperwork than interesting and challenging legal analysis, particularly around LCA compliance. He knew that he wasn’t the only one who felt this way - no one was automating LCA compliance and there was a gap in the market, so Roman quit working as a lawyer, got a job in tech to learn the ropes, and eventually launched LaborLess, helping H-1B employers and immigration law firms across the US and overseas automate their LCA process.
