In a further quest to standardize best practices in the EB-5 lending space, we are partnering with NES Financial to bring our expertise to a neglected area of the EB-5 program.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) July 25, 2017
NES Financial, the leading EB-5 service provider, announced Arnstein & Lehr, LLP as an official Medallion Solution Partner.
Medallion Solution Partners provide EB-5 best practice solutions or services that augment and integrate with NES Financial’s Intelligent EB-5 Solution Suites at critical stages of the EB-5 project life cycle.
Considered one of the leading law firms within the EB-5 industry, Arnstein & Lehr will supplement NES Financial’s EB-5 Loan Administration Solution with an added capability to cure project loan defaults in a manner consistent with USCIS regulatory requirements and the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act.
EB-5 loans are inherently complex, involving stakeholders that range from investors to issuers to developers. Loan enforcement for an EB-5 investment requires specialized professionals with proficiency across legal, finance, and accounting fields. The loan enforcement capability enhances NES Financial’s Loan Administration Solution, which is designed to handle the complexity and unique requirements of EB-5 funded loans efficiently and at scale.
“The EB-5 market has seen significant changes in recent years. As the market becomes more institutionalized, we are seeing greater demand for services that increase the security, transparency, and compliance of EB-5 offerings,” said Reid Thomas, NES Financial Executive Vice President and General Manager of the EB-5 business unit.
“We have a strong history of EB-5 institutional experience and are proud to have a sophisticated partner like NES Financial. While we never want to come across a situation where one of the parties to a loan agreement does not live up to its obligations, the unfortunate reality is that this does happen. In a further quest to standardize best practices in the EB-5 lending space, we are partnering with NES Financial to bring our expertise to a neglected area of the EB-5 program,” said Rohit Kapuria, EB-5 attorney at Arnstein & Lehr, LLP.
“Given the fact that almost every fraud case has involved no independence in the funding process, both the regulators and the market itself are demanding more transparency and independence in the loan administration and enforcement process. We have teamed up with NES to provide a full service and independent approach to the process." Ronald Fieldstone partner in the Miami office of Arnstein & Lehr LLP.
