Clark Hill can assist businesses and investors in financing projects seeking to utilize foreign investment as permitted in connection with the EB-5 Immigrant Investor program. We are experienced with all aspects of the EB-5 program and represent developers, investors, lenders, escrow agents and regional centers in EB-5 projects.
We help our clients in structuring and developing financing through the EB-5 Program, which includes advising on organizational structures, offering documents, relationships with regional centers and all elements to incorporate immigrant investors into a new business or expansion of existing developments. For many clients, the intersection of financing, governmental agencies and foreign investors is uncomfortably new, even though the client wants to pursue opportunities incorporating immigrant investors. Our multi-disciplinary approach provides comprehensive services for clients using the Immigrant Investor program, by seamlessly weaving together our business attorneys, immigration services, financing expertise and practical knowledge of our professionals.
Any development or business pursuing an immigrant investment strategy must develop an understanding the many variations of investment strategy. The variations include timing, investor expectations and due diligence activities. We inform, counsel and guide our clients as they seek financing or seek to provide financing.
We know that the objective is to close on financing, not just experience a process, and we help our clients pursue and reach that objective.
