EB-5 Issue Leadership
The national law firm Chamberlain, Hrdlicka, White, Williams & Aughtry needed to establish the firm’s International Team as the best resource to help clients effectively navigate the complexities of the federal EB-5 visa program, which allows foreign investors to obtain U.S. visas if they invest in qualifying job-creating ventures.
Working directly with Chamberlain’s EB-5 attorneys, Pierpont identified the crucial publics and developed a strategy to engender credibility, trust and engagement. A key tactic supporting the plan was to introduce the firm to influential reporters covering EB-5 issues nationally, with a particular emphasis on those whose reach extended back to Asia, since the vast majority of EB-5 visa applications originate in China. Extensive research on EB-5 regional centers in key metro markets across the U.S. drove a targeted outreach campaign to introduce Chamberlain directly to those managing the EB-5 program and therefore subject to oversight, compliance challenges, and public scrutiny.
