LOS ANGELES — Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell LLP (JMBM) and Advantage America EB5 Group are pleased to announce the publication of Regional Centers & Sponsors and U.S. Securities Laws: How to evaluate broker-dealer, investment company and investment adviser registration requirements.
“When it comes to the EB-5 investment market, the SEC provides clear guidance in some areas and very little in others,” said co-author Catherine DeBono Holmes, Chair of JMBM’s Investment Capital Law Group. “The information in this publication covers the complex compliance issues associated with EB-5 offerings.”
Written in response to hundreds of queries received from EB-5 professionals and developers, the articles in the 30-page booklet were first published as a four-part series on the Investment Law Blog.
“Regional Centers and project sponsors are right to be concerned with complying with U.S. securities laws,” said co-author Victor T. Shum, CEO of Advantage America EB-5 Group. “Violations come with penalties that can jeopardize both the project and its investors, so the EB-5 investment must be structured properly.”
Together, lawyers Holmes and Shum have decades of experience as securities counsel on a wide range of investments – both public and private – and have many years of experience in the EB-5 arena, representing numerous clients on projects funded in part through EB-5 financing.
