E3 Investment Group, headquartered in New York, announced today that that Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Matt Gordon has authored an article entitled Organizational Law Issues in the EB-5 Program, which will appear in Forming and Operating an EB-5 Regional Center: A Guide for Developers and Business Innovators, Editors: Angelo A. Paparelli and L. Batya Schwartz Ehrens. The book is being published by ILW.com and is expected to be available in February.
According to Mr. Paparelli, “The EB-5 program has captured the attention of a far more sophisticated class of developers, entrepreneurs investors and advisors just as the federal government has dedicated additional resources toward program compliance and enforcement.” The Scalable-Direct™ model, Paparelli noted, offers a streamlined method to meet EB-5 program requirements while requiring fewer steps along the path to permanent residence for investors — clearly a win-win for stakeholders.”
According to Matt Gordon, “It was a great honor to be asked to contribute to the book. Mr. Paparelli is among the most esteemed immigration attorneys in America. To have brilliant attorneys like him and Ms. Ehrens recognize the value of our Scalable-Direct™ model and how it can help expanding options for both sponsors and investors alike speaks for itself.”
Mr. Gordon regularly writes and speaks on corporate/securities law and policy aspects of the EB-5 program. Mr. Gordon continued, “The EB-5 program is a wonderful opportunity for the harmonious and simultaneous creation of economic and social good. Sponsors can make a lot of money, but more importantly, we can help rebuild inner cities and give job opportunities to those who need it the most. It should be an example of public policy at its best. Unfortunately, the intent of many participants and the execution has been sub-par historically. We feel it is important to be a leading voice helping the program reach its potential through more investor friendly offerings and better than best practices. Forming and Operating an EB-5 Regional Center is a fantastic platform to provide the immigration bar and sponsors the needed information to improve the EB-5 Program.”
