Green and Spiegel’s Jonathan Grode Quoted in Forbes EB-5 Article

Jonathan A. Grode

U.S. Practice Director Jonathan Grode was quoted in a May 10th article featured in Forbes regarding the EB-5 immigrant investor program. In the article, Jonathan dispelled a common misconception that EB-5 is ‘U.S. citizenship for sale’ by noting the program’s unique job creation and at-risk investment requirements. Jonathan further discussed how the visa is a good alternative for high-net worth individuals "who want to control their own destiny," with wait times often shorter than other preference categories subject to severe retrogression.
