Leon Rodriguez, partner of Seyfarth’s Labor & Employment department, co-chair of the firm's Immigration Compliance and Enforcement Team, and member of its EB-5 Immigrant Investment Team, is serving as a panelist for "Pending Regulations and Other Administrative Policy Updates: Turning Uncertainty into Opportunity" at the 2018 AILA & IIUSA EB-5 Industry Forum in Chicago, IL on October 29, 2018.

If adopted, the proposed USCIS EB-5 regulations without visa reform could severely impact the EB-5industry. The panel will host a discussion about the current status of the regulations and the content, and the potential impact on investors, regional centers and developers. Is there a silver lining for the industry if the regulations are adopted? USCIS policy updates, including its recent guidance on “placeholder” filings, will also be considered.
