Arnstein & Lehr Miami Partner Ronald R. Fieldstone will participate in the American Bar Association’s EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program on Wednesday, April 2. The webinar/teleconference is hosted by the ABA’s section of Real Property and Trust & Estate Law. The program is called, “EB-5 Visas and Foreign Investments in Real Estate as a Capital Source: What your Developer Client Needs to Know.” The program was created by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to stimulate job creation through foreign investment. In the past few years the EB-5 program has exploded, becoming a popular source of capital to supplement traditional fund raising. The complex regulatory environment surrounding the EB-5 program requires specialized knowledge to advise clients while staying in compliance with various regulatory bodies. This program is designed to give an overview of the EB-5 Immigrant Investor program and help practitioners advise their developer clients how to lawfully obtain EB-5 Capital for real estate projects.
