EB-5 Investment Voice
Mona Shah & Associates Global Podcast Series
Reported by Hermione Krumm, Esq.
EB-5 Investment Voice is the only Podcast series that focuses on and the United States immigrant investor visa, EB-5 and foreign direct investment. Mona Shah, Esq. welcomes guests from the industry, including: Developers, Regional Center Operatives, Attorneys, Legislators and Politicians.
Of the 15,000 immigration lawyers in the United States, only about 300 specialize in the EB-5 program. An experienced lawyer who understands the nuances of the program and your unique situation can help you navigate the system and make informed decisions around the type of investment you choose to make. Unfortunately, it only takes one misstep along the way to lose your money—and your green card.
The guest for this episode is David Hirson, the managing partner of David Hirson & Partners. Like Mona, Mr. Hirson has been continuously voted as one of the Top 25 Attorneys by the EB-5 Investors Magazine and is on the list of Year 2017’s Top 25 Attorneys. He has been working on EB-5 cases since establishment of the program, preparing and filing one of the first EB-5 cases back in 1991. Mr. Hirson is an active member of the immigration law community, and his firm is often called upon by trade groups, investors, projects and universities to serve as subject-matter experts on the topic of EB-5 investment visas.
Mr. Hirson joins Mona in this episode to discuss the differences between a Regional Center and a direct investment, specifically the job creation requirements and the investor’s level of involvement in project management. They cover the common mistakes made by investors who purchase existing businesses and misconceptions among inexperienced attorneys with regard to the two-tier level of investment. Finally, they speak to the difficulty investors face in getting meaningful information from Regional Centers as well as USCIS and the value of securing assistance from a qualified EB-5 attorney.
