2017 AILA EB-5 Investors Summit

Three partners from Klasko Immigration Law Partners will be speaking at the 2017 AILA EB-5 Investors Summit. The summit is taking place in Las Vegas, NV from December 8-9, 2017. 

The 2017 AILA EB-5 Investors Summit is designed for both entry-level and seasoned EB-5 practitioners and professionals. Cutting-edge issues will be addressed through in-depth panel discussions featuring experts in immigration, securities, and business law, highly respected economists, and other well-regarded professionals in the industry. The conference program emphasizes legal and policy analysis, compliance, due diligence, enforcement, and ethical considerations, so that attorneys will be able to identify and provide counsel on EB-5 ineligibility matters, devise strategies to help their regional center or investor clients navigate complex legal and business issues, and respond effectively to USCIS or other government challenges.
