Comment: In Memoriam
Immigration Daily and Chinese Immigration Daily note the untimely passing away of Gregory White, partner at Seyfarth Shaw, whose practice was focused on EB5 corporate and securities law (the law firm kindly provided this link to his bio on the funeral home website, where arrangements for final services can also be found). It is Immigration Daily's (and Chinese Immigration Daily's) contention that EB5 is an important part of the immigration firmament, and that clean securities practices are essential to healthy EB5. Greg White was one of the foremost proponents of proper securities procedure in EB5. A practitioner's work is always client-centered and Greg put in many a midnight hour for his clients in his 3 decades plus in practice (see note from a client below). Greg recently spoke at events for migration agents in Taipei and Shanghai, see below the note from the co-host of the events there (in Mandarin and in English). Greg co-wrote the chapter on securities law in previous and forthcoming editions of THE EB5 BOOK, see below the note by the volume's Editor. Greg also participated in a cooperative endeavor by a few securities attorneys to develop EB5 integrity measures for enactment by Congress, which were recently delivered to the Judiciary committee staffs in both chambers (see below note by one of the attorneys involved in that effort, also below are notes from IIUSA and a non-client RC noting Greg's interest in compliance). One day, when a clean and investor-friendly EB5 market arrives (and it will), Greg White's work will have contributed to the dawn of that day.

Focus: Chinese Student Events in USA (Reg D offerings and law firms seeking Chinese clientele)
Chinese international students are coming to the US in dramatically increased numbers. The explosion in undergrad Chinese students started a few years ago and continues. For EB-5 purposes Chinese students offer the best prospects. We have been conducting events since 2014 educating Chinese Students on EB-5 in New York, Washington DC, Massachusetts, Michigan and California. We will be conducting similar events in other locations soon. For each city we promote the event to multiple campuses across the metropolitan region; this can vary from ten to twenty campuses per city. The time frame for the events is determined based on the academic calendar. These are short evening events that require a short single night stay trip from the sponsoring Regional Center or law firm. During the educational event covering the students' immigration options the sponsor makes a short presentation about their project or law firm. The event structure allows for plenty of networking opportunities with students. These events are available only to Regional Centers that use Regulation-D or to law firms, and we require clients to consult a securities attorney before signing up for these events. For more information please contact us at tel: 212-545-0818 or write to us at
