SANTA MONICA, California, May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bernard P. Wolfsdorf, Founding Partner of Wolfsdorf Immigration Law Group and a native South African, returns mid-May to share his expertise with entrepreneurs and investors who wish to expand business operations into the U.S.
Mr. Wolfsdorf, has been selected by Who's Who Legal as the world's top-rated business immigration lawyer for the past three years. He has scheduled a three-city tour in an effort to raise awareness of the United States' new immigration opportunities based on President Obama's "Entrepreneur-in-Residence Program" designed to promote investment in the U.S. "The program has created widespread opportunities for business persons wishing to invest or live in America, especially in the EB-5 Immigrant Investor visa, and will benefit South Africans by promoting two-way trade and investment," says Wolfsdorf.
Wolfsdorf's vast experience and national prominence will permit South African entrepreneurs and investors to expand business operations and promote innovation by expanding business operations into the U.S. Recognized extensively for his achievements in the field of immigration law, Wolfsdorf also has a personal commitment to assisting citizens of South Africa. Born in Durban, he emigrated to the U.S. and opened his law firm in the 1980's, and has helped hundreds of his fellow South Africans in business, science, entertainment and sports, to become prominent and successful in their chosen fields in the US.
"As an immigrant to the U.S. myself, and after twenty-five years of practice, providing high-quality legal immigration advice to my clients continues to be my key objective. I am proud to have helped countless South Africans accomplish their professional objectives," says Wolfsdorf.
During the presentations, Wolfsdorf will address the various routes to green card or permanent U.S. residence. Benefits of the free seminar series include evaluation of the various investor and business visa options available to South Africans, detailed explanations of the process, and ideas for entrepreneurs, innovators and investors.
Several co-sponsoring U.S. Government designated Regional Centers will participate, including USA Continental Regional Center. Founder, Al Rattan will explain their new Renaissance Villages project which provides entrepreneurial opportunities with a new assisted living/memory care facility that is poised to take advantage of the boom in demand for assisted living locations. "Investment Opportunities provide a roadmap for entrepreneurial South Africans to expand operations abroad and benefit from the largest economy in the world," says Rattan. Also participating is Kyle Walker, Managing Partner of GreenCard Fund that specializes in the development, operation and brokerage of U.S. commercial real estate properties. Walker explained, "With South Africa's fluctuating currency, investments in U.S. real estate projects provide a stable opportunity to immigrate and protect assets".
Mr. Wolfsdorf is the past President of the American Immigration Lawyers Association ("AILA"), where he vigorously championed comprehensive immigration reform, that is presently being debated in the U.S. Congress and which will further open doors to investors and business opportunities, especially for entrepreneurs, businesses, and the "best and brightest". Mr. Wolfsdorf and his firm of 17 immigration attorneys, based in Los Angles and New York City, are well-suited to assist the entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, and accomplished individuals wishing to expand their operations globally and seek a path to dual citizenship where they can equally benefit from both South Africa and the U.S.
