EB-5 Litigation

EB-5 litigation may occur under various conditions. The most typical scenarios include when an investor is faced with the need for redeployment, when an investor’s immigration benefits or financial rights are jeopardized by the malpractice of a regional center or a developer, when investors request the return of capital when they are not eligible to, or when the lack of clear guidance in the subscription agreement causes disagreements between investors and regional centers. Recently the EB-5 industry has also seen an increasing number of lawsuits caused by the unexpected delays of processing by USCIS. In order to minimize the risk of litigation, it is advisable that both EB-5 sponsors and investors consider the factors that could potentially lead to litigation and reach agreements on such issues before any documents are signed. In the case that a lawsuit happens, it is important that all relevant parties seek qualified legal support.
