At CHUNG, MALHAS & MANTEL, PLLC, our attorneys and professionals strive to deliver innovative solutions to our corporate clients. For qualifying companies, an under-utilized but effective alternative means of obtaining capital could be through the Federal EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program. Obtaining financing for a company through this Program could prove more cost-efficient than more traditional means of raising capital, such as debt acquisition, venture capital or private equity.
Our attorneys and professionals work closely with clients to understand their goals in order to determine which EB-5 investment strategy is best suited to their businesses. One strategy is to situate a business in a Targeted Employment Area, and thereby get direct investment into the business. A second method is to invest in a “Troubled business.” A third method is to establish an EB-5 Regional Center. By creating a Regional Center, a business entity is permitted under federal law to receive foreign funding. Through this business entity, foreign-investor EB-5 capital is pooled in combination with non- EB-5 capital, and the total capital is then invested in projects throughout the United States. This strategy is often used in commercial and residential real estate investments, as well as in the aerospace, clean technology, entertainment, and healthcare, industries.
To determine the best method for a business to acquire EB-5 funding and to ensure compliance with all applicable federal and state laws, our team of attorneys and professionals work with a multidisciplinary team of economists, financial analysts, and CPA international tax experts and provide inclusive services to an entity seeking EB-5 funding.
