Immigration Perspectives

Sheppard Mullin’s Global Immigration and Compliance and Corporate Securities groups present: U.S. Immigration for Investors and Entrepreneurs

Immigrants historically have contributed to some of America’s most successful businesses and innovation.  However, navigating the labyrinth of U.S. immigration laws has been difficult, for even the best and brightest.  While Congress gears up to tackle comprehensive immigration reform the administration continues its efforts to promote the entrepreneurial spirit of many immigrants within the existing framework.  Most recently, USCIS developed and launched the Entrepreneur Pathways web portal, which aims to close the information gap between USCIS and the entrepreneurial community.  

Smart immigration planning fosters more successful startups and accelerates the course of  growth.  This lunch session will offer insights into U.S. immigration law for investors and entrepreneurs interested in learning about visa options and requirements when pursuing business opportunities in the U.S.  The discussion will focus on: 

  • Developing immigration strategies unique to start-up organizations, founders and their employees, including structuring the right corporate entity
  • Common immigration hurdles international investors, entrepreneurs and new companies face when entering the U.S. market 
  • Political landscape surrounding legislative proposals and agency initiatives

It is never too early to start considering the impact of immigration laws on your ability to pursue a career or a new business venture in the U.S.  You will be able to ask questions and participate in a lively discussion featuring Sheppard Mullin’s immigration and corporate attorneys, Mahsa Aliaskari and Kevin Rooney.
