Who's Who Legal Corporate Immigration: Lawyers

Joseph M Barnett is licensed as an attorney in Illinois and Wisconsin and practises exclusively in immigration and nationality law. His practice focuses primarily on EB-5 immigration, through which he has successfully represented foreign nationals with their I-526 and I-829 petitions based on investment with regional centres or individual businesses. He also provides counsel to regional centres and developers with respect to preparing investment offerings suitable for EB-5 funding for diverse commercial ventures, applying for initial and amended regional centre designations (including approval of I-526 exemplar petitions), and ongoing compliance issues. He is skilful at navigating his clients through a process where the rules are constantly changing based on government adjudication trends.

Mr Barnett’s practice also includes a variety of other US immigration matters, such as temporary work US visas and employment-based petitions, administrative appeals, and federal writ of mandamus and APA lawsuits.

WWL says: Joseph Barnett is “an outstanding lawyer” according to sources who praise his excellent work on EB-5 immigration visas.
