    April 23 - Attorney Risks

    Comment: Attorney Risks There are at least three distinct factors that go into the decision to make an EB-5 investment, and there are three distinct kinds of licensed experts that can advise investors about them. 1) Financial Evaluation (including Suitability & Location): Investment advisers licensed by FINRA are trained to evaluate the question of suitability of an investment for a particular investor. To make this judgement, the investment adviser needs to look at the entire portfolio of the investor--which an immigration attorneys are generally not aware of. How do you choose a location of a real estate investment? Location has to evaluated with respect to the price--a "great" location which is overpriced can be worse than "poor" location at a low enough price. Only someone with real estate experience can evaluate a real estate investment. Furthermore, analysis of financial projections is a specialty which most immigration attorneys are not trained to do. 2) Structured Finance: Structured Finance is a field of expertise in its own right and is needed to evaluate an EB-5 investment. Expertise in that field is needed to understand EB-5 investments qua investments--and that should be left to those who have the expertise to untangle the agreements, the clauses, the terms, the structures and the assets and their relationship to an EB-5 investor to be able to recommend an EB-5 security to an investor. This requires understanding of various entities in a specific deal which would affect investors, underlying assets in the deal terms/structure and inter-credit agreements including subordinate clauses. 3) Immigration Risks: Immigration attorneys can certainly evaluate the job cushions for the project, calculate how many jobs have been created based on the models used etc. They can distinguish projects based on whether the job cushion is 400% or 4% etc. Probably the optimal structure is the financial adviser quarterbacking the advice--bringing in experts in Structured Finance and Immigration law when needed. By attempting to usurp all three functions, and advising clients on the choice of EB-5 investments, or giving clients a short list of "reputable" projects or Regional Centers, immigration attorneys risk their law licenses, expensive litigation, and their personal assets by violating the SEC laws against investment advise. Advising investors on suitability of an investment without having a FINRA license is a violation of SEC laws, and such violations are not covered by standard malpractice insurance policies most attorneys carry. Though Chinese investors have not been litigious, that is not the case the Indian or other nationalities that dominate today's EB-5 market. Taking this large a risk for a relatively small legal fee such as $25,000 makes no sense, since the risks are more than 20 times larger than that.

  • April 11 - EB5 Requires Structured Finance

    April 11 - EB5 Requires Structured Finance

    Comment: EB5 Requires Structured Finance To evaluate an EB-5 investment one needs to be proficient in the field of Structured Finance. Simply looking at a record or reputation of a developer, or the nature or location of the project is entirely inadequate to evaluate an EB-5 investment. A developer with an illustrious record with a great location and a successful project can still have a lousy EB-5 investment depending on the overall financial structure for the project. For example, consider the following three aspects of Structured Finance. 1) Inter-creditor Agreement(s), especially Subordination Clauses: An EB-5 investment has multiple sources of capital: typically banks in a senior position, EB-5 sharing the mezzanine position with other mezzanine investments, such as preferred equity, bridge loans etc. Subordination clauses govern the relative place and priorities of various investments. These clauses can be very simple or very complicated or something in between - and are usually part of an "Inter-creditor Agreement" which could run into hundreds of pages. Attorneys can develop expertise in Inter-creditor agreements to evaluate these, but absent such experience, it is folly to even think that an attorney has a grasp over whether a specific EB5 investment is good for an investor. The maxim "past performance is no guarantee of future outcome" is not a cliche, but the simple truth, and attorneys ignore it to their peril. 2) Underlying Asset in the deal terms/structure: EB-5 investments have a complex structure. One needs to determine the value of the NCE's agreement with the JCE, especially as regards to what assets are pledged toward the NCE's loan. Sometimes the loan is secured by a hard asset such as land/buildings, sometimes the equity of the JCE, which may or may not have any value in liquidation proceedings and sometimes debt possessed by the JCE, which could also be of questionable value. Fine judgments involving corporate law and complex financial instruments may well be necessary to offer advice about deal terms and structure, absent experience with which it is hazardous to posit a statement to an investor. 3) Various entities affecting the investor We have seen large projects in New York/Los Angeles/etc, whose structures involve as many as twenty interacting entities, intimately affecting the NCE and JCE, --and deal structures which require a combination of a mining engineer, cartographer and a mini-Einstein to grasp. Attorneys with experience in the field of Structured Finance can navigate these land-mines, but attorneys without such experience take the risk of getting blown up. Structured Finance is a distinct area of law that takes many years to master. Expertise in that field is needed to understand EB-5 investments qua investments--and that should be left to those who have the expertise to untangle the agreements, the clauses, the terms, the structure...
