Our EB-5 clients have developed projects throughout the United States including in New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, California, Texas, Maryland, North Dakota, Nevada, Ohio, Florida, and Colorado.
Miller Mayer provides comprehensive and nuanced advice in project structuring. We have counseled clients using traditional financing structures as well as innovative structures tailored to diverse assets and industries. Moreover, our expertise allows clients to maintain an upper hand even when challenges arise. We advise clients through project change, restructure, delay and management changes based on mastery of governing law and close tracking of USCIS adjudication trends. Our clients succeed because they are prepared.
Maintaining USCIS approvals and designations is an integral part of Miller Mayer’s client service. Ongoing compliance advice informed by legislative proposals and evolving USCIS policy is a key benefit for our clients throughout the lengthy lifecycle of EB-5 projects and investor cases.
