Working with our team of experts takes the guessing out of these decisions.

Case Study #1

A successful Brazilian businesswoman in the technology industry wished to buy a business in the US. She was frustrated because Brazil is not a party to an investor treaty with the US and therefore she cannot qualify as an E2 investor. We recommended an L1 since she has been the CFO of the Brazilian business for the past 4 years and has managed a team of people in Brazil. She will continue to manage them while in the US, but does eventually want her Green Card. The L1 is an ideal choice and the client went ahead and purchased the US business that we helped her to select as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Brazilian business. We successfully coordinated the whole L1 process for her and her application was approved. She is now in the last quarter of the first year of her L1 and plans to pursue a Green Card in 2017.

Case Study #2

Canadian Client was advised by attorney that they had a strong L-1A case. They were referred to us for a Business Plan; however upon further examination it became apparent that they fell short of qualifications for L-1A because they had no employees in the foreign company and did not plan to hire professionals in the U.S. We recommended that they pursue an E-2 and their petition was successful and processed within 2 months of initial discussion.

Case Study #3

A client was in the U.S. on an E-2 visa and sought our assistance to secure his EB-5 visa by expanding his restaurant business. He was adding additional tables, services and staff, and investing additional capital. We first assisted the client to confirm that the location was in a Targeted Employment Area, which reduced the amount of investment required for this petition to $500,000. e-Council Inc.’s professional team then walked the client through the process overseeing all aspects of the EB-5 application, from the Business Plan with a comprehensive market study to the preparation of the Immigrant Investor Petition and Source of Funds analysis (prepared by a CPA). The Petition was approved in late 2016 and the client is now living and working the U.S., and his children are attending U.S. schools.
