Klasko Immigration Law Partners, LLP is holding its annual full day EB-5 seminar on Friday, October 13, 2017 at Convene, Cira Centre in Philadelphia. This one-day seminar focuses on EB-5 Regional Centers and Developers interested in capitalizing projects with EB-5 financing. 

Why Should I Attend This Seminar?

This seminar will provide the latest information on legislative updates, hot topics, trends and other cutting edge topics. In addition to our team of nationally-recognized EB-5 attorneys, we will bring together some of the top experts in the field. Given the increased focus of USCIS, the SEC and investors on failed and fraudulent projects, our program will have an emphasis on all aspects of compliance.

We look forward to presenting you with insights and strategies on structuring and marketing projects and on compliance best practices, and to having the opportunity to address your questions.
