Question Do you need Labor Certification if you are on L1 visa?

A friend is here on a L1 visa. His company is willing to file for his green card. However, the lawyer told him that he will first need to get a Labor Certification and then I-140 and finally I-485.

Now I am quite certain that I have heard of another person's case that labor certification is NOT required for people on L1 visa.

Can you please point to some useful information, links, etc?

Question 5. I have an L-1. If my company applies for my green card, do I need a Labor Certification?

That depends upon whether you have an L1A or an L1B. An individual on L1A (or one who is on L1B whose position abroad was managerial or executive in nature and is now being offered a managerial or executive position), is likely to qualify for a special green card category known as the EB1 Multinational Executive or Manager. This category, as with other types of EB1s, does not require a Labor Certification. Most L1Bs (i.e. with the limited exception mentioned above) do require the Labor Certification.

I surely know that you don't need for L1-A (they apply for EB1 category). Not sure about L1-B
