SGG has represented clients managing dozens of regional center entities, either in obtaining and maintaining regional center designation, advising the regional center entity about immigration law compliance, or obtaining residence for individual investors.
SGG attorneys are effective advisors to U.S.-based enterprises raising EB-5 capital. Our clients have successfully raised more than $4 billion in EB-5 capital as of October 2015, and that figure is increasing rapidly. Again, considering statistics on the overall levels of EB-5 capital raised throughout the entirety of the program, we estimate our client work represents a substantial portion of the $13.05 billion in foreign direct investment injected into the U.S. economy through the EB-5 Program .
We also have represented U.S. venture groups seeking assistance in raising EB-5 capital to fund redevelopment projects, commercial real estate, hotels, agricultural development, alternative energy, and manufacturing businesses.
Our expertise in this practice specialty is immigration law-specific; however, we have honed our trade in such a manner that allows us to efficiently review and comment on offering documents, transaction-based documentation, business plans, market studies and economist reports. Our approach always has been oriented to the interdisciplinary, as reflected in our published work.
The impact of our work in this practice specialty cannot be underestimated. Not only are we practice leaders – evidenced by tangible productive work for the immigration bar and the EB-5 industry – but our client work has generated real-life results typically measured in terms of job creation, but also in community renewal.
