Successfully managing Employment-Based Fifth Preference (EB-5) projects requires a unique blend of legal, business and political acumen. At Brownstein, we have specific experience overseeing some of the most significant EB-5 projects in the country. 

The EB-5 program is intended to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors, and allows developers initiating long-term projects that create a sufficient number of U.S. jobs to avail themselves of the EB-5 immigrant visa category. For those who qualify, EB-5 is a cost-effective way to infuse vetted foreign investment dollars into new construction and redevelopment projects.

Our highly experienced EB-5 team can coordinate every aspect of the EB-5 process, negotiating an EB-5 deal between our developer-clients and regional centers, development partners, specialty immigration counsel and creditors. Our comprehensive services also include drafting critical documents necessary to “paper” an EB-5 project, and advocating to ensure that developer-clients have the political support needed to get their EB-5 projects completed.
