Course Description

This program was recorded on May 13, 2021

This course is designed to explain the initial steps and procedures when analyzing legal factors for an alien who wants to invest and live (at least temporarily) in the United States.

What does an attorney need to know in order to create a comprehensive plan to help a foreign individual to establish his/her business in the United States, while at the same time taking into account the client’s immigration plans. These situations can be intricate as the factors to account for are multifaceted and come from a diverse array of legal fields such as immigration law, tax implications, business formations and structures, and real estate acquisition. Additionally, this course will discuss how foreign business people can purchase, register and operate an aircraft in the United States. Lastly, the course will elaborate on how stark differences in culture and business practices can lead to ethical issues in the attorney-client relationship.
