EB-5 Client Practice

The EB-5 visa process is a multifaceted, complex area of law entailing the crossover of several highly specialized practice areas such as immigration, corporate law, business transactions, and U.S. securities regulations. Kelley Kronenberg’s EB-5 Practice Group Attorneys have diverse backgrounds in business, real estate, immigration, investment management and general liability, to better assist EB-5 clients with each transaction. Further, our EB-5 Practice Group is able to assist our clients in multiple languages including: Portuguese, Spanish, French, Italian and Farsi with access to Russian, German, Hindi and Gujarati.

For wealthy foreign nationals, the EB-5 program is often the best visa option available to obtain permanent resident status and a pathway to U.S. citizenship. Kelley Kronenberg’s EB-5 Practice Group guides clients through the complex EB-5 process and assists in all aspects of obtaining residency through an EB-5 Investment.

The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program, administered by the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services, is an employment-based visa that provides foreign investors with a method of obtaining green cards through an investment of $500,000 to $1 million in the U.S. economy that creates at least 10 jobs. Congress enacted the EB-5 program in 1990 in order to stimulate the U.S. economy by bringing in foreign capital for job creation purposes. The program not only benefits the U.S. economy because of the job creation element but it also allows developers to create new projects by injecting vetted foreign capital into their construction development projects.
