Business Immigration & Compliance

Position

Kate Kalmykov focuses her practice on business immigration and compliance. She represents clients in a wide-range of employment based immigrant and non-immigrant visa matters including students, trainees, professionals, managers and executives, artists and entertainers, treaty investors and traders, persons of extraordinary ability, and immigrant investors. Kate has extensive experience working on EB-5 immigrant investor matters. She regularly works with developers across a variety of industries, as well as private equity funds on developing new projects that qualify for EB-5 investments. This includes creation of new Regional Centers, having projects adopted by existing Regional Centers or through pooled individual EB-5 petitions. For existing Regional Centers, Kate regularly helps to prepare amendment filings, file exemplar petitions, address removal of conditions issues and ensure that they develop an internal program for ongoing compliance with applicable immigration regulations and guidance. She also counsels foreign nationals on obtaining greencards through either individual or Regional Center EB-5 investments, as well as issues related to I-829 Removal of Conditions.

Knowledgeable, technical and great to deal with’, Greenberg Traurig LLP earns praise for its ‘extremely professional and effective lawyers’. Proficient across the full spread of immigration services, the team specializes in advising multinational corporations on strategic immigration planning - both into and out of the US. However, the group is also recognized for its strong skill sets in policy development, compliance matters and contentious work, as well as traditional visa issues. ‘Standout specialist’ Laura Reiff is ‘among the best in her field’, and splits her time between the firm’s McLean and Washington DC offices. Reiff co-chairs the practice alongside McLean-based Martha Schoonover, who is highlighted as ‘incredibly experienced’. Other recommended names in the team include Kate Kalmykov, who splits her time between New York and New Jersey, Atlanta-based Ian Macdonald and McLean-based Pamela Mak.
