Anu and her team are responsible for all investor filings, which includes I-526 Petitions, consular processing and adjustment of status applications, and I-829 Petitions.

As the Investor Team’s managing partner, Anu is responsible for the preparation and filing of all EB-5 Petitions, both through regional center investments and individual investment opportunities. Anu’s command of investor-related issues is recognized within the field and she is frequently called on to review EB-5 cases prepared by other law firms to ensure compliance with USCIS’ extremely rigorous standards. Anu is routinely retained to respond to difficult Notices of Intent to Deny and to file appeals for denials received by other firms. She represents clients at visa interviews, both at U.S. Consulates overseas and with the Citizenship and Immigration Services in the United States.

Anu has extensive experience in both employment-based and family-based immigration. Prior to joining the EB-5 team, Anu represented hospitals, international record companies, multinational businesses, and major production companies in securing a variety of employment-based immigration benefits for their employees. Anu also assists clients with family-based immigration matters and represents clients before the Immigration Court, the Citizenship and Immigration Service, and Customs and Border Protection.

Anu is a 2006 graduate of Baruch College where she majored in Biology. She went on to obtain her law degree from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, where she served as submissions editor of the Cardozo Journal of Law and Gender. Prior to joining KILP, Anu practiced with an immigration law firm in New York City and was an Adjunct Lecturer of Biology at Baruch College.
