Do You Have EB-5 Financing in Your Toolkit?

But, a flurry of litigation, more scrutiny by lawmakers, and an uptick in regulatory activity point to increased risks for EB-5 stakeholders. Whether you are a professional working with an EB-5 regional center, a developer borrowing EB-5 funds or starting your EB-5 deal, a senior lender, or a strategic institutional investor in a project funded through EB-5 financing, you need experienced counsel.
