EB-5 Q&A: What should a securities attorney know about the EB-5 program?



If you trying to create a Regional Center or EB-5 project, a securities attorney may help ensure that EB-5 investment and business project are appropriately structured and in compliance with US investment law regarding soliciation of investors.  However there is no particular requirement that one use a securities lawyer for much of the EB-5 process, and securities expertise has no particular use or value in complying with the detailed policy and law governing the evaluation of EB-5 programs and the approval of specific applications, which is not based on securities law.  If you are applying for an EB-5 green card, you should obtain an immigration attorney.
