Comment: EB-5 Regional Center Seminars


ILW.COM is pleased to present a monthly telephone seminar series for existing EB-5 Regional Centers and for developers and dealmakers planning to apply for Regional Center designation or establish syndicated EB-5 investments involving multiple investors.


Each 30-minute session is presented at no charge. The sessions will feature renowned immigration lawyer Angelo Paparelli and invited experts focusing on current developments and best practices in the EB-5 arena from the point of view of Regional Centers and syndicated EB-5 investment entities. Issues affecting individual investors will also be covered but only from the perspectives of Regional Centers and other EB-5 entities.


Angelo Paparelli, a partner in the national law firm Seyfarth Shaw LLP, is one of the most highly regarded business immigration lawyers and scholars in America. He is named a "Star Individual" (above Band 1) in the 2012 and 2011 editions of Chambers USA, rated "Tier 1" in the 2012 and 2011 editions of Legal500, and included in the 2012 and 2011 Employment Law 360 list of the country's "Top Ten Immigration Lawyers."


With this ILW.COM telephone seminar series, Angelo will bring to bear his formidable legal talents and immigration thought leadership and suggest solutions to the many vexing problems faced today by Regional Centers and other EB-5 investment entities.
