AILA Summit to Convene in Las Vegas

From December 7th to the 8th, the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) will host the 2017 EB-5 Investors Summit in Las Vegas, NV at the Aria Resort and Casino. IIUSA Executive Director, Peter D. Joseph, will present on a panel titled “Hot Topics: Legislative and Agency Updates” which will focus on program extension and congressional reform, new agency developments and other industry topics. Other notable panel members include: Enrique Gonzalez of Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen and Loewy, LLP and Carolyn Lee of Miller Mayer, LLP.

This year’s summit focuses on legal and policy analysis, compliance, due diligence, enforcement, and ethical considerations. These areas of focus aim to help attorneys 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.

Topics include:

·Navigate Emerging USCIS Policies and Practices

·Develop Strategies When Representing Investor Clients in Failed or Fraudulent Projects

·Tackle Evolving RFE Issues Involving Source of Funds, Minor Investor Eligibility, and EB-5 Projects

·Get the Latest Updates on Legislative Changes and Visa Retrogression

·Identify and Manage Risk in Areas of Professional Responsibility

IIUSA’s President of the Board of Directors, Robert Kraft, thanks Joseph for his important contribution to the AILA Summit and each of the immigration lawyers for their important contributions to the EB-5 program.
