[Q] Do regional centers have their own U.S. immigration attorneys to prepare EB-5 petitions for Investors?


Most Regional Centers, for consistency purposes, may have their own designated, preferred, recommended, or allowable U.S. immigration attorneys for EB-5 investors. From an efficiency point of view, the RCs want to work with experienced U.S. immigration attorneys who can represent the Investors well; but at the same time, from a marketing point of view, the RCs might have to work with any U.S. immigration attorneys to have a greater chance of attracting Investors to their EB-5 Projects. It all depends on the philosophy and needs of a particular RC. Obviously, any RC would probably like to work with a proven U.S. immigration attorneys who know their system and requirements.

It should be noted that there is a healthy competition among Regional Centers, and at the same time, they are bound by common goal of furthering the interests of the Regional Centers and EB-5 law to better accommodate the needs and interests of Regional Centers.

One purpose of this site is to further the interests of potential EB-5 Investors.
